While we love our more traditional chicken salad sandwich, I’ve also fallen in love with asian chicken salad. Especially now that StarKist® Chicken Creations™ chicken pouches make it so easy to make this quick appetizer, we can whip it up in minutes. 

Filled with Ginger Soy chicken, broccoli slaw, red cabbage, almonds, and more crunchy deliciousness, it’s super flavorful. And I don’t even have to add any dressing, because the chicken is already flavorful enough for the whole salad.

Wonton cups are easy to bake, as well. Just place wonton wrappers in muffin cups, put them in the oven, and they’re ready to go in about 10 minutes. 

Even my kids loved this salad, filled with protein and a host of colorful veggies. I can see myself making this easy chicken salad recipe, along with our favorite Chicken Fried Rice Spring Rolls, for all kinds of events, from family get togethers to holiday parties.

I love eating the Chicken Salad flavor right out of the pouch with crackers or veggies. 

The Ginger Soy makes a delicious chicken appetizer. The premium, white meat chicken is sourced from farms right here in the U.S., where chickens are raised cage free and hormone free.
