🔹1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs

🔹Coconut aminos

🔹1 can (or two mini cups) of mandarin oranges in JUICE-drained)

🔹1 small purple cabbage

🔹1 small green cabbage

🔹1 bunch of green onions, chopped

🔹2oz raw cashews

🔹1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

🔹Salt + pepper

🔹Sesame seeds

Dressing Ingredients:

🔹1/4 cup (64g) unsweetened sunbutter

🔹3T Coconut aminos

🔹1T Sesame oil

🔹2 tsp crushed ginger (I use frozen cubes)

🔹2T Apple cider vinegar

🔹1T water

🔹1 large clove garlic (or two small)

🔹3T Allulose syrup (from Kroger-the maple works fine here!) You can also sub honey or maple syrup but this will change the nutrition of the recipe and add a decent amount of sugar.


🔹Marinate the chicken thighs in some coconut aminos for anywhere from 3-24 hrs

🔹Shred the cabbage in a food processor with the thinnest blade possible or slice thinly by hand. You should have 1.5-2lbs of shredded cabbage.

🔹Crush up the cashews then toast in a skillet on medium heat until golden brown. Set aside.

🔹Throw all of the dressing ingredients into a mini blender and blend.

🔹About an hour before you want to eat add the cabbage to a large bowl or tupperware with lid and add half of dressing to the top. Put the lid on and shake to distribute dressing. Open the lid and taste a bite and adjust seasonings as needed (add S+P if you want). Place in fridge.

🔹Grill the chicken thighs or cook in a skillet or oven until cooked through. Allow to cool and slice.

🔹Take slaw and transfer it to big salad bowl.

🔹Place the chopped chicken on top.

🔹Add the mandarin oranges, cashews, green onions, and cilantro to the top.

🔹Drizzle with remaining dressing, taste and add salt if needed.

🔹Sprinkle additional sesame seeds to the top.

🔹Serve and enjoy!

If you are doing meal prep with this dish:

🔹Distribute slaw with a small amount of dressing between 4-5 meal prep containers.

🔹Add chicken to the top of the slaw(You will likely have around 3.5-4oz cooked chicken per container)

🔹Before eating: Top each container with more dressing, green onions, cilantro, 1/4 of oranges, cashews (about 10g per container), salt (if needed), and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
