    Mandarin Grilled Chicken Salad

    You need:

    1 cup Romaine lettuce
    1 cup shredded cabbage (slaw mix w/o sauce)
    1 skinless chicken breast
    1/4 cup mandarin orange slices (they come in a jar)
    1/4 cup crunchy chow mein noodles
    2 tbs Newman's Own Sesame Ginger dressing
    1 tbs sesame oil (regular vegetable oil can be substituted if necessary)
    Dash of low-sodium soy sauce

    In a medium frying pan over medium heat, grill the chicken breast until juices are clear.  While the breast is cooking, splash a dash of low sodium soy sauce over each side.  Once the chicken breast is fully cooked, remove it from heat and allow it to cool.  While the chicken is cooling, prepare the salad by tossing the Romaine lettuce, shredded cabbage, and orange slices in a large bowl.  Cut the cooled chicken breast into bite-sized pieces and add them to the salad mix.  Transfer the salad to a large plate and sprinkle the chow mein noodles over the salad.  Add the salad dressing and enjoy.

    The beauty of this meal is that it is very filling due to the large volume of vegetables, has a very low calorie count, and tastes great.  If the Sesame Ginger dressing is not to your liking, try a vinaigrette or other low-calorie option.  Avoid anything "creamy" as such choices are  usually very calorie-dense and fattening.
