Healthy Coleslaw Recipe
with Chicken:
Unique and Simple!


Voila! Here’s my very unique healthy coleslaw recipe. This is perfect for a quick lunch or dinner appetizer.

Cabbage is very popular in my native Poland. You might find this coleslaw to be very different from the traditional North American kind. That’s because I’m using my Mom’s recipe.

It’s very crispy and crunchy! It also has apples in it, which give it a very singular flavor. Yes, there is a sauce! But it’s more like a dressing and doesn't use mayonnaise.

So it’s almost like Mom used to make! And I also added chicken too!

Ingredients (Serves 2 healthy coleslaws!):

200 g of chicken breast
2 tablespoons of cider vinegar
3-4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of mustard
⅓ cup of orange bell pepper strips
1 garlic clove
2-3 cups of shredded or sliced cabbage
1 medium onion
2-3 medium carrots
1 small apple
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh chopped parsley

Cooking Utensils You'll Need:

kitchen knife and chopping board
measuring spoons and cups
medium size saute pan (skillet)
cooking spoon
garlic peeler (optional)
medium size mixing bowl
large salad bowl
vegetable shredder

Directions for My Healthy Coleslaw Recipe:

Cut the chicken into medium pieces.
