  • 8 oz skinless boneless chicken breast shredded
  • 8 oz Chinese cabbage
  • 2 oz red cabbage
  • 2 oz carrots
  • 1/2 cup scallions chopped, divided
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp ginger grated
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1.5 oz egg noodles

Instructions

Prep

  • For Chinese cabbage and red cabbage: Slice their heads into quarters and core. You can use either a knife or a mandoline slicer to cut them into thin ribbons.
  • Julienne the carrots. Chop the scallions diagonally.

Cook

  • Boil the whole-piece chicken breasts for 15 minutes. Chill.
  • Use a fork to pull the chicken breasts apart into thin strips.
  • Make the sauce: Whisk together rice vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, ginger, ground black pepper, garlic, soy sauce, and salt.
  • Deep-fry the egg noodles until crisp. Drain excess oil.
  • Combine Chinese cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, shredded chicken, and half of the scallions in a bowl. Toss them together with the sauce.
  • Divide the salad into serving plates. Put the crispy fried noodles on top. Sprinkle sesame seeds and the remaining scallions.
  • Serve.
