prep: 20 mins cook: 45 mins additional: 30 mins total: 95 mins Servings: 6 Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup slivered almonds

½ bunch cilantro, coarsely chopped leaves

3 green onions, chopped

¼ cup sesame oil

¼ cup rice vinegar

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 tablespoons white sugar

¼ medium head shredded green cabbage

2 tablespoons ground ginger

3 green onions, chopped

2 large carrots, shredded

1 teaspoon ground coriander

2 tablespoons soy sauce

¼ medium head shredded red cabbage

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Instructions:

Whisk together the rice vinegar, sesame oil, 3 green onions, garlic, sugar, ginger, soy sauce, vegetable oil, coriander, and mustard in a mixing bowl until the sugar has dissolved. Pour half of the dressing into another container, and refrigerate for later. Place the chicken breasts into the remaining dressing, and coat on all sides. Cover, and refrigerate 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Place the chicken into a baking dish.

Bake the chicken breasts in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the oven, and allow to cool. Shred the chicken using 2 forks and set aside.

To assemble the salad, combine the green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, 3 green onions, cilantro, almonds, and cooled chicken in a large mixing bowl. Pour the reserved dressing overtop and toss to coat.
