Reviews for Asian Barbecue Chicken Slaw
"My husband and I really enjoyed this, but I would make a few changes next time. The chicken was delicious but I would lessen the amount of the honey mustard dressing and maybe add a little BBQ sauce to the coleslaw dressing. I also like the idea that another reviewer had to add a little sesame oil as well. We would definitely try this recipe again."
"The chicken tasted AMAZING! Made the full amount of dressing as I made a larger salad to feed all of us – although had heaps of salad leftover! Didn’t use coleslaw mix – used baby spinach, lettuce, cabbage, carrots as I had them on hand. Another winning recipe! Just LOVED this. Thanks for the best recipe!"
"Amazing! I added a few drops of sesame oil. Scrumptious!"
"It was a delicious and unique meal."
"This was really good! I did all the sauce prep work, toasted the sesame seeds and almonds, and chopped the green onions the night before so all I had to do at dinner time was to saut? the chicken (and I used boneless chicken tenders so didn't even have to slice the chicken breast!) and put everything together. The only change I would make is I think there is plenty of the dressing mixture for at least one and a half, if not two, bags of slaw mix. If I would have had another bag on hand, I would have added it as there was LOTS of dressing in the bottom of the bowl. This was quick easy and very tasty and I will definitely be making it again!"
