Asian Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad
Happy New Year! I am so pumped up and hopeful for the new year. 2018 was great for my family (mostly) but there is something about the start of that new year that I just love and that makes me feel renewed. We enjoyed tons of holiday treats this year and I am ready to get back on track with some nutritious meals. This Asian Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad is packed full of protein and veggies which is perfect for a little reset in the new year!

Chopped Asian Ramen Salad
The entire month of December held lots of holiday parties, birthdays and more for our family. We hosted Christmas Day in our home for 30 of our closest family members and it was amazing. The party left us with heavier eats for days and days and I am so ready for some lighter eats that help me feel my best. I am definitely someone who needs nutritious foods to feel well along with tons of water and exercise.

Bowl of Asian Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad
I was brainstorming some meals that would be amazing for lunch meal prep and this Asian Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad sounded perfect! I could make it in quantity for my family so that Troy could take it for lunch at work and the kids and I could have it at home for a few days. This ramen noodle salad is very easy to make and I even took a little shortcut by using Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Fully Cooked Pulled Chicken Breast from Walmart.

I whisked together a tangy Asian vinaigrette with reduced-sodium soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and canola oil. I typically cook with olive oil but have liked using canola oil in dressings for a lighter flavor. I chose red cabbage along with regular cabbage for more vitamins and a boost of color. Carrots, toasted almonds and ramen noodles give a great crunch and green onions provide a great flavor.

Tyson Grilled & Ready Pulled Chicken Breast
Tyson Grilled & Ready Fully Cooked chicken products help to make mealtime simpler and have between 13-21 grams of protein per serving depending on the product. The Tyson Grilled & Ready Fully Cooked Pulled Chicken Breast I used in this recipe has 13 grams of protein per serving. It uses no antibiotics ever and is 100% all natural, made with white meal chicken. I picked it up in the freezer section at Walmart.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Fully Cooked Pulled Chicken Breast
  • 2 packages ramen noodles
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 16 ounce bag coleslaw mix 
  • 3 green onions, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, crumble ramen noodles on a baking sheet and sprinkle almonds on as well. Spread out and bake for about 10 minutes until toasted.
  2. In a skillet, heat chicken for about 3 minutes until warm.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together all ingredients for dressing.
  4. In a large bowl, toss all ingredients together.
  5. Serve immediately if you want ingredients to be crunchy. Also works well for meal prep if you don't mind noodles being soft. You can keep toasted almonds and ramen noodles separate from the salad if you are serving later and want them to stay crunchy.
