Servings 4 people


  • 2 Fresh Express® Honey Pecan Premium Slaw Salad Kits® (9.7-ounce)
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons sambal oelek (fresh chile paste)
  • 3 tablespoons garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese Five Spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package boneless, skinless chicken thighs (20-ounce) excess fat removed
  • 1/2 cup red pepper diced


  • Whisk the rice vinegar, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, sambal oelek, garlic, Chinese Five Spice and salt in a bowl until smooth. Pour half of the mixture into a large resealable plastic bag; set aside the remaining sauce. Place the chicken thighs into the bag and toss to coat. Refrigerate for one hour, turning the bag once or twice.
  • Heat oven to 425° F.
  • Bring the reserved sauce to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce thickens.
  • Remove the chicken from the bag; discard used marinade. Arrange chicken thighs in a 9×13-inch baking dish; brush with 1/3 of the sauce.
  • Bake at 425° F for 10 minutes, baste with sauce. Continue baking for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165° F. Meanwhile, reheat the sauce and brush on the chicken thighs; cut them into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

To Make the Asian Avocado Slaw:

  • Place the Fresh Express® Honey Pecan Premium Slaw Salad Kits® into a large bowl; toss with salad dressing, toppings, and red pepper.
