This Oriental Chicken Bok Choy Mason Jar Salad is easy to assemble and convenient for grab-and-go work lunches during the workweek.

Ingredients


171 gm Chicken breast, roasted (organic, sliced)
1 tbsp Sesame oil (divided)
1 tbsp Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (divided)
1 tsp Honey
1 tsp Hot pepper (chili) flakes
1 tbsp Sesame seeds
1 small mushroom(s) Portobello mushroom (small, or oriental mushroom sliced (makes about 1 cup))
1 head Baby bok choy (small)
1 cup Green cabbage (shredded)
1 cup grated Carrots (shredded)
2 tbsp Almonds, raw (slivered)

Instructions


  1. Toss chicken slices in 1/2 tbsp sesame oil, 1/2 tbsp coconut aminos, honey, chili flakes, and sesame seeds. Grill or place on skillet/wok until cooked through. Remove and set aside in a small bowl.
  2. Place your other 1/2 tbsp sesame oil, and 1/2 tbsp coconut aminos in a bowl, along with the mushrooms, and toss to coat. 
  3. Grill or cook mushrooms for 2-5 minutes (as desired). Remove and keep any extra oil/coconut aminos you have left in the pan or marinated bowl.
  4. Slice your bok choy in half and place it on a paper towel after you have washed it. Place in the microwave to lightly steam for 30 seconds to a minute (just enough to soften).
  5. Next layer your jars:
    • Place cabbage at the bottom
    • Add the mushrooms
    • Add the chicken
    • Wrap 1/2 a sliced bok choy bunch around each jar
    • Add the grated carrot. 
    • Pour any leftover oil from cooking in the jars, if desired.
    • Sprinkle slivered almonds on top of each salad
  6. Seal the mason jar and store it for later.
  7. Once ready to serve, dump everything out into a bowl and enjoy!

Quick Tips:

Don't have time to cook chicken, or forgot to take it out of the freezer to thaw? No problem! Buy pre-prepped chicken at the grocery store instead!

For a vegetarian option, replace the chicken with chickpeas, edamame, or marinate tofu instead.
