This grilled chicken with Asian slaw recipe is an easy weeknight meal that the whole family will enjoy.  Simple grilled chicken breasts with an Asian-style slaw made with coleslaw mix, orange slice, and chow mein noodles. 

The finished dish is seasoned with a simple peanut butter sauce, however, you can leave that out if you prefer. 

If you are pressed for time on a weeknight, marinate the chicken and grill it ahead of time, and throw it in the fridge. Then, all you have to do is slice, make the sauce, and serve!

I have put in a few suggestions where I might change things up a little the next time I try this recipe. I offered it to my kids as a ‘top your own’ meal (those are very popular in my house).

The coleslaw doesn’t stay well as leftovers so I would only add sauce to what you think you will eat that night. Save remaining sauce and coleslaw separately and mix again the next night if you have more chicken. Or eat it without the chicken! Equally tasty!

These are the ingredients I used since I was in a hurry.  You can, of course, shred all your own coleslaw ingredients and use fresh oranges.  I was just in a bit of a hurry!
