Chinese Chicken Salad


  • 4 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 bag coleslaw mix
  • 3 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced, greens included (about 1/2 cup)

  1. Preheat an oven to 350° F.
  2. Combine 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and brush onto chicken breasts. Arrange in a baking dish and bake until the juices run clear, about 13 to 15 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oven, cool completely, and cut into 1/4-inch slices.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the coleslaw mix, scallions, water chestnuts, Mandarin orange and sliced chicken.
