Asian Chicken Coleslaw

I've made this before with bottled dressing, but this time I made my own. Full of healthy fats and a fair amount of protein (ok, and some junk. I love me some top ramen!). YUM!

Asian Chicken Coleslaw
2 T natural peanut butter
1/2 c. dark sesame oil
1/4 c rice vinegar (+ more to taste)
1/4 c soy sauce (+ more to taste)
1/2 seasoning packet from top ramen
pinch of sugar to taste
8 cups coleslaw mix (a 16 oz bag)
1 c. bean sprouts
12 oz grilled chicken breast (I used the premade ones from Tyson)
2 packages ramen noodles (yes, a calorie splurge - you could leave them out to save 38 calories of pure junk per serving)

Crush the ramen noodles and toast them in a saucepan. In the meantime, whisk together peanut butter, oil, vinegar, soy sauce and 1/2 seasoning packet. Add more vinegar, soy sauce, or sugar to taste.

Toss veggies, chicken, toasted ramen noodles and dressing together (personally, I like my coleslaw soggy so I mix it all at once. You could also mix together individual servings as you eat them, if you prefer).

Makes 20 - 1/2 cup servings, with 94 calories, 4 g of fat, 7 g of carbs, and 5.5 g of protein.
