Zippy Chicken Coleslaw
Disclaimer- I hate, hate, hate coleslaw. This doesn't have the mayo, and tastes good. Don't be afraid!

1 Tbls paprika
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
1 package (3 oz) hot and spicy Raman noodles
4 cups shredded cabbage
2 cups broccoli coleslaw mix
3 green onions, chopped
2 Tbls sesame seeds, toasted
2 Tbls sliced almonds, toasted

Dressing:
3 Tbls sugar
2 Tbls soy sauce
4 1/2 tsp cider vinegar
2 1/4 tsp water
2 1/4 tsp canola oil
1/8 tsp pepper

In small bowl, combine first 8 ingredients. Rub over both sides of chicken. Broil 3-4 inches from heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. When chicken is cool enough to handle, shred with two forks. Cool completely.

Set aside seasoning packet from Raman noodles. Break noodles into small pieces; place in a large bowl. Add cabbage, broccoli coleslaw, onions, sesame seeds, almonds, and chicken. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the dressing ingredients and contents of seasoning packet. Shake well. Pour over coleslaw and toss to coat.

Servings- 9- 3 WW points per serving.

Chef Slush's Note- I am too lazy to do all that rubbing and broiling. Instead, I get pre- cooked frozen chicken breast strips, heat them up in the microwave, sprinkle them with seasoning, and broil them for just a few minutes to let the spices adhere nicely. Also, I don't use the sesame seeds or the almond slivers, again because I am a lazy, lazy cook.... I also serve this as a main course, so we eat more per serving than the crackpot who thinks you are only going to have 2/3 cup of this stuff. I think we measure in at about 8 points a bowl, which is a nice dinner sized portion.

I have had a recipe very similar to this - YUM!!! I'm not even sure I'd call it coleslaw for those folks that haven't had it. They called it crazy salad or something. It is fantastic!!!!!

I hate rubbing seasongs over raw meat too, but of a different reason - the dried thyme would be trapped under my nails and the garlic flavor would stick with me for the entire day.

I'd give this a try next week. You've just helped me figure out what to eat for Monday, four more dinner ideas needed. Suggestions??
