For the salad:

  • 1 bag Tyson® 100% Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks
  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1 2 oz packet slivered almonds
  • 1 11 oz can mandarin oranges drained well
  • 1/3 cup crunchy rice or chow mien noodles

For the dressing:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 6 tbsp honey
  • 3 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil


  • Preheat oven to 425f degrees.
  • Place Tyson Chicken Breast Chunks onto a foil-lined baking sheet (or spray with nonstick cooking spray.)
  • Cook for about 15-20 minutes.
  • While the chicken chunks are cooking, start preparing your salad.
  • In a large bowl, combine chopped romaine lettuce and shredded cabbage.
  • Then toss in shredded carrots, green onions and slivered almonds.
  • Top with mandarin oranges and crunchy rice noodles.
  • To prepare the dressing, whisk together the mayonnaise, rice wine vinegar, honey, dijon mustard and sesame oil.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, take it out of the oven.
  • Then add cooked chicken to the prepared salad and pour dressing on top.
  • Or you can keep the dressing on the side and everyone can help themselves.


Sesame oil has a very strong flavor so don't overdo it.
