Make Ahead Layered Chinese Chicken Salad
Marinated and grilled chicken is layered with an Asian slaw mix, snow peas, mandarin oranges with a tangy ginger-chile-garlic dressing.

Recipe Ingredients:
1/2 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
3 tablespoons Chinese chile garlic paste
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1/4 cup light soy sauce
3/4 cup rice vinegar
1 3/4 teaspoons cornstarch
1/3 cup water

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup snow peas, trimmed and halved
1 (15 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
2 (12 ounce) packages Asian slaw mix

2 cups chow mein noodles
1/3 cup chopped green onion

Cooking Directions:
1 – Mix Splenda® Granulated Sweetener, chile garlic paste, light mayonnaise and ginger together in a medium mixing bowl. Stir well. Add soy sauce and rice vinegar. Mix until well blended.
2 – Pour 1/4 cup of dressing in a small bowl. Place chicken breasts in bowl, tossing to coat. Marinate in refrigerator 45 to 60 minutes.
3 – Place remaining dressing in a small saucepan. Set aside. Mix together cornstarch and water in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved. Pour cornstarch mixture into dressing while stirring constantly. Place pan on medium-high heat. Boil dressing over medium-high heat approximately 2 minutes, while stirring constantly. Remove dressing from heat and pour into a small bowl. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until cool.
4 – Remove marinated chicken breasts from refrigerator. Grill or broil chicken until internal temperature reaches 160°F (70°C). Set aside to cool. Slice thinly or shred cooled breasts. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
5 – Place 1 bag (8 cups) of Asian Slaw in a straight-sided glass bowl. Drizzle a third of the prepared dressing over the slaw. Arrange 1/2 of the sliced or shredded chicken breasts and pea pods on top of the slaw mix.
6 – Pour remaining slaw into bowl. Top with remaining chicken and oranges. Pour remaining dressing over the salad. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
7 – Just before serving top with chow mein noodles and green onion.
Makes 13 (1 cup) servings.

Note: Substitute shredded or finely chopped Napa Cabbage if Asian Slaw Mix is unavailable. Use crushed ramen noodles in place of chow mein. Toasted sliced almonds also make a great garnish. For a more authentic Asian flavor add 1-2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil.
