  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper or lemon pepper

  • 2 shakes Tabasco sauce (or to taste – see note)

Garlic and Lemon Chicken Slaw Instructions

  1. Mix the bag of cole slaw mix, bite-sized chunks of Garlic And Lemon Chicken Breasts, julienned bell pepper and radishes, and slivered almonds in a large bowl.
  2. Toss with the granular Swerve, salt and pepper.
  3. Cover and refrigerate 10 minutes. Drain off any excess liquid.
  4. Pour the dressing over the cabbage/chicken mixture and toss the ingredients well to combine them thoroughly. Make certain that there are no “dry” pockets of the cabbage mixture which have not been coated with dressing.
  5. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour. This shrinks considerably while standing. Drain excess liquid before serving.
  6. Plate and serve.


You can play around with the seasoning in the dressing, adjusting them to your own personal taste. Ground Cayenne pepper may be substituted for the Tabasco sauce, if you wish.

If you want to add some real zing to the salad, add some horseradish.

You don’t have to add all of the dressing if you prefer a drier cole slaw, as I do.
