Napa or Chinese cabbage’s crisp, cream-colored leaves make a wonderful addition to salads, stir-fries, and soups. It’s easy to buy cooked chicken at the supermarket, but if you have the time, you can cook the chicken yourself. You’ll need 12 ounces of skinless boneless chicken breasts for this recipe. Place the chicken on a baking sheet lightly sprayed with nonstick spray. Lightly spray the chicken with nonstick spray. Cover the baking sheet tightly with foil and bake the chicken in a 400°F oven until cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes. Let the chicken cool, then tear it into shreds. This recipe can easily be doubled for additional meals.
