Cold Chicken Sesame Salad In A Jar Recipe

Cold Chicken Sesame Salad In A Jar Recipe

Ingredients for 1 serving:

1 Serving
* Optional Substitution Note

  • 5oz leftover chicken breast, pulled or cut into pieces
  • 7oz (198g) shirataki noodles or low-carb noodles
  • Substitute: zucchini noodles; OR soba noodles or whole wheat noodles (NOT be low-carb)
  • 1 cup shredded (purple/red) cabbage
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (toasted or black)
  • Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (OR peanut butter)
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce (OR sriracha)
  • one tablespoon liquid aminos or low sodium soy sauce (OR tamari)
  • 1 oz warm water (note: warm water helps with mixing)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil (OR peanut oil)
  • Utensils – 32oz mason jar


Step 1

Mix together the ingredients for the dressing and set aside.

Step 2

Place shirataki noodles in a bowl and microwave for 3 to 5 minutes to remove the odor.  Allow the noodles to completely cool down to remove temperature (or place them in the fridge).

Step 3

Build the noodle salad jar! I used a 32oz mason jar to allow enough room to pack in veggies and shake it up.  Add chilled/cooled noodles, leftover chicken, shredded cabbage, bell pepper, green onion and sesame seeds.

Step 4

Keep the sauce/dressing separate from the noddle salad until you’re ready to eat it.  Store the jar and sauce in a fridge or (mini-)cooler.

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
