Asian Chicken Salad

 I was recently told be my doctor I had to lose weight. I hate to admit it but I am 50 pounds over weight. It never bothered my husband bless his heart. It did me, but not enough to do something about it. Now I don't have a choice. Which is good in a way. I have no excuses left.  I am getting off track here. This post is about the recipe. My husband loves this salad. Even though he has no weight problem. (Don't you just hate that!) The recipe is from Hungry Girl. It is so good. I will be taking it to Heidi's tonight.

12 oz of cooked skinless and boneless chicken breast chopped into small bite size pieces
1 16 oz bag of  packaged dry broccoli slaw mix
1 can water chestnuts, drained and sliced into thin strips
1 cup caned mandarin orange segments packed in water or juice, drained and chopped
(and rinsed if in juice)
1 cup chopped green onions
3/4 cup Newman's Own lighten up low fat Sesame Ginger Dressing

In a large bowl toss all ingredients together in till mixed well. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Stir before serving. (my husband likes it chilled over night.)
 Serving 1 1/2 cups, 195 cal 2 fats 4 fibers. 21 carb 22.5 proteins.

 This is also very good even if you aren't trying  to lose weight. If you don't care to know about these recipes as I try new ones, please leave a comment. I have plenty of other recipes I can post about. Thanks.

  3. Michelle just left after unsuccessfully trying to teach me how to crochet... I am crochet challenged. This asian chicken salad is YUMMY! I make a full calorie version and I think hers is every bit as good.

  4. Michelle,
    that salad looks yummy! Don't even want to think about dropping weight, so not fun! Might have to give your salad a try!
    PS. My room is kind of equestrian rustic lodge so the greenery fits in with the horse stuff, skis, oars, suitcases,etc. Thanks for the comment!
