An easy, fresh, bright, and flavorful meal solution!
In a large re-sealable bag, combine soy sauce, blood orange juice and zest, ginger, garlic, honey, sesame seed oil. Stir until well-mixed and then add chicken breasts, seal bag, and marinade overnight or for a minimum of 2-3 hours.
Remove the chicken breasts from the bag, discard the marinade, and grill the chicken for 5-7 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 160° to 165° F. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes. Cut the chicken into bite size strips.
Cut red peppers, green onions, and segment your oranges. To segment an orange, cut off both ends of the orange, stand it upright on your cutting board, and then slice away the peel. Then, with a sharp knife, go in between the orange sections and cut the wedges out. To toast the almonds just put them in a hot dry skillet and keep moving them for about 2-3 minutes until they just begin to get a touch of color.
Place Earthbound Farm Organic Asian Chopped Salad vegetables directly in a large salad bowl. Add all the sliced chicken, blood orange segments, chow mein noodles, almond slices, red pepper slices, green onions, sesame seeds, Earthbound Farm Asian salad kit sunflower seeds and wonton crispy toppings, and mix.
Drizzle tahini dressing over the top and squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice over the top. I like adding the lime juice as blood oranges are sweet, and this brings in just a touch of tartness.
Serve in bowls or on plates with an extra lime wedge and enjoy!
