Step 1

Prepare dressing and set aside.

Step 2

Smash noodles of Top Ramen (discard seasoning packets) and brown over medium heat in 3 tbs oil.

Step 3

Once noodles have begun to slightly brown, add slivered almonds. If you start to brown the Ramen and almonds at the same time, the almonds will burn before the Ramen browns.

Step 4

Once the ramen noodles have turned a dark golden brown, remove from heat and set aside.

Step 5

Combine cabbage, green onions, chicken and sunflower seeds in a large bowl.

Step 6

Add the ramen/almond mixture and stir well.

Step 7

Add dressing and stir to coat.


If it sits in the refrigerator too long, it gets very thick and won't remix well.
