Crock Pot Chinese Chicken Salad

chinese chicken salad

This is a low-calorie, healthy chicken salad that is easy to make. I added the crunchy chow mein noodles because my kids love them, but to make your salad even healthier you could omit them. They do add a nice crunch though if you want to just add a small amount.

    Made this tonight for supper – it was delicious!! My husband & I had it as a salad (we added diced water chestnuts instead of almonds) and our son had just the meat. Thanks for a tasty salad, we’ll make this again sometime when we have friends or family over.ReplyCancel
