    I didn't put in the almonds or romaine nor toasted the sesame seeds but put in 2 cups of cabbage. Only 1 cup of diced chicken was plenty. We ate this for lunch and my husband was so happy with the taste he stated "maybe we can have more for dinner." We will definitely have this again. A quick and easy make!
