Chinese Chicken and Cabbage Salad

Here is another great light flavorful salad from Weight Watchers.

Chinese Chicken and Cabbage Salad
Weight Watchers

3 (5 ounce) skinless boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1 star anise
5 whole black peppercorns
1 quarter-size slice fresh ginger
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp minced peeled fresh ginger
1 medium head (about 1 pound) Napa cabbage, very thinly sliced
1/3 onion, very thinly sliced
1 bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced

Combine the chicken, broth, water, star anise, peppercorns, and ginger slice in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the chicken is nearly cooked through-about 7 minutes.
Remove from heat and let stand, covered for 7 more minutes.
Drain the chicken, reserving the liquid for another use.
When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred into bite-sized strips.
Meanwhile, whisk together the lime juice, vinegar, jalapeno pepper, soy sauce, garlic, sugar, and minced ginger in a large bowl.
Add cabbage, onion, and bell pepper and toss.
Add the chicken and toss again.
Serve immediately, or cover and chill for up to 2 hours ahead.

Per serving (2 cups)=3 points
