For being 195 calories, this was pretty darn good, if I must confess. The broccoli slaw mix is a fast and easy and healthy way to jump start this recipe- it can be found next to the bagged lettuce in most stores. You really have to let it refrigerate for 2 hours though- this softens the slaw and combines all the flavors in a lovely, Asian-y way! Another shortcut- buy pre-cooked chicken strips and chop 'em up! Delish.
