Spicy Chicken and Vegetable Slaw




  • ¼ cup of diced red onion
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts (~1 pound)
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed
  • Sea salt, pepper to taste
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of lime juice
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup sliced cucumber
  • 1 8 oz bag of Mann’s Fresh Fusion slaw: kale, kohlrabi, golden beet, red cabbage
    • Any combination of cabbage and vegetables will work nicely; the precut bags are oh so convenient! 


  1. Poach the chicken: put chicken and the red onion in a pan over medium heat with enough water to cover chicken. Bring to boil, then simmer till chicken is fully cooked.
  2. Remove chicken from water; reserve about ¼ cup of the broth. 
  3. When chicken is cool, cut into bite size pieces or shred.
  4. Whisk together the dressing: Spices, lime juice, broth (add gradually; you probably will not need the whole amount.)
  5. In large bowl, combine the cabbage mixture, with the chicken, walnuts and cucumbers. 
  6. Pour dressing over. Toss to mix well.

Mary-Beth says: “The raw, pre cut vegetables provide crunch along with a variety of nutrients. And adding walnuts for some extra omega-3 fatty acid never hurts either!”
