My husband is all about eating lighter lately, this Asian Chicken Slaw should do. When we first met he wouldn’t even touch sugar or anything fattening. This continued through our friendship, dating, engagement and the first little bit of marriage. And then I succeeded in creating a sweet tooth in him. Pretty much I ruined him, but it was so worth it. Now he loves a little “special treat” as we call them, but he stays balanced with healthier meals, portion control etc. He is all about fitness, health and overall wellness which I love about him. I will say that sometimes it does get a little annoying always hearing, “what’s the calories on this?” or “what’s in it? Is it healthy?” ENOUGH ALREADY! JUST EAT! haha, but seriously, it’s good that he wants to take care of his body and I love that he isn’t all one way. He enjoys balance and treating himself. This salad is a perfect example of the type of low calorie meal that he likes. It’s got protein, veggies, a little crunch and a sauce. It’s pretty much perfect!
This recipe is a great way to use the leftovers from the roasted chicken earlier in the week.
