Chicken Noodle Salad Bowl

Chicken Noodle Salad Bowl is a combination of super greens, low carb pasta, chicken and peanut sauce. This is made with ready-made chicken breast strips for convenience. And the peanut sauce has an extra tang by adding some ready-made Italian Style dressing to it. This is Asian-Fusion at its most delicious!

This recipe is a great light evening meal. Also, if you have leftovers, you have lunch ready for a few days in the week! Now you can enjoy your better-than-takeout lunch at a more affordable price!

Chicken Noodle Salad Bowl

One month into our pledge to eat healthier and Grumpy and I are going strong. We have been making smarter choices and eating more vegetables with our protein. Finding convenient and high protein products like the Tyson® Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips made our weeknight dinner making quick, convenient, and an easy way for us to eat right!

One of the ways I have been getting in my exercise is to go shopping on lunch hour! I work on getting my daily steps in this way at least once a week! Getting my walk on is pretty fun when I can shop!

On my recent trip, I wanted to find something that would help me make a high protein salad bowl for our meal that evening. I don’t always buy convenience items. However, it can be difficult to go home at night, cook a meal, and still think about what to pack for lunch the next day.

On my recent trip I grabbed a bag of Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips, some super greens, limes, cucumbers, and cilantro. I also picked up a bottle of Italian Salad Dressing. I wasn’t exactly sure how I was going to bring dinner all together until I was in my car on my way home from work (where I do my best thinking!).

The surprise ingredient in the peanut sauce I made was the robust Italian Salad Dressing! I felt the boldness of the dressing would be a great compliment to add to the sauce!

After mixing my it the peanut sauce together, I prepared the ready-made chicken strips by microwaving about 2 minutes. Next, I tossed together with the noodles, warmed-up chicken strips, and sauce.

This made a good sized healthy salad bowl for Grumpy and me! Very filling, satisfying, full of protein and power greens with a sauce that tastes like it came from a restaurant.
