Our Crunchy Chicken Salad recipe is a real crowd-pleaser. Wonderin' why? 'Cause it's the perfect combination of simple ingredients with fancy tastes!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (3-ounce) package Oriental-flavored ramen noodles
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 cooked chicken breast halves, chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 1 (16-ounce) package coleslaw mix

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Crumble uncooked noodles onto a baking sheet; set seasoning packet aside. Combine crumbled noodles with almonds and sunflower seeds on baking sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally.

  2. Combine seasoning packet, the oil, sugar, and vinegar in a jar. Cover tightly, and shake vigorously. Combine chicken, coleslaw mix, toasted noodle mixture, and dressing; toss well. Serve immediately.


This easy one-dish meal makes good use of leftover chicken. If you prefer a meatless entre, just omit the chicken - either way, you'll enjoy your crunchy creation.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Great recipe made this a few times but never toasted the noodles or almonds sunflower seeds great idea- really easy and everyone loves it great for potlucks and picnics one lady adds shredded lettuce instead of coleslaw and I love it! I use fresh shredded cabbage and carrots instead of bagged mix tastes much fresher and better next time I am going to make it with the lettuce! I keep my sunflower seeds and almonds in freezer bags in freezer they keep fresh much longer

this is so good & so easy. If you have leftovers they taste just as good the next day. I have lots of Mr. food cookbooks & watched him faithfully on TV. Love the recipes. Pet peeve of mine, people get on here & complain about the calories . fat ect. If you want all lo fat, Vegan,, low calorie, ect this may not be your site. Go to a site that features your kind of recipes, don't get on here & complain.If you don't like the recipe don't make them.

Thanks for renewing an old favorite by using the chicken... I mix the chicken & salad ingredients the day before to mellow the flavors, & add dressing & crunches just before serving. Keeps it fresher.

I have made basic recipe before (no baking and no chicken) Chicken sounds like a fantastic idea. I make it ahead (even a day before) and prior to serving add the noodles. That lets the flavors be absorbed, but you still get the crunchiness of the noodles.

I have made this before but without the chicken! I don't know why I didn't think of it! Oh, and I didn't bake it but just combined it all! I can enjoy it even more now!
