  • 4 cups shredded cabbage*

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced green onions (2)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 6 purchased or homemade corn muffins
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 14 ounces frozen cooked, breaded chicken breast fillets, prepared according to package directions
  • 1 15.5-22 ounce can barbecue beans
  • 1 ½ cups chopped green, yellow, and/or red tomatoes (2 large)
  • ¾ cup bottled ranch salad dressing
  • * If desired, substitute 5 cups packaged shredded cabbage with carrot (coleslaw mix) for cabbage and carrots.


Step 1:  For slaw, in a large bowl combine cabbage, carrots, and green onions; toss to mix. In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add dressing to cabbage mixture, tossing to combine. Cover and chill for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Step 2: Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. Cut corn muffins into 1-inch cubes. Place cubes in a large shallow baking pan; drizzle with melted butter, tossing to coat. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until crisp, stirring twice. Set aside.

Step 3: Transfer slaw mixture to an 8- to 10-cup clear glass bowl. Cut chicken into strips. Arrange chicken strips evenly over slaw. Spoon beans over chicken pieces, spreading evenly. Sprinkle corn muffin cubes over beans. Top with tomatoes. If desired, cover and chill for up to 6 hours.

Step 4: Just before serving, spoon dressing over all.
