Chinese Chicken Cabbage Salad .
Morning ! ChihYu from IHEARTUMAMI.COM (@iheartumami.ny). Chicken cabbage salad is perfect for the coming warmer summer days. I paired it w/ homemade sesame ginger vinaigrette. If you are choosing b/t chicken breasts or thighs, definitely go with boneless/skinless chicken thighs. It will add so much more flavor to the salad!
