  1. In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, onions, and chicken. Toss with olive oil until everything is lightly coated. Season with salt and pepper and continue to toss while adding lemon juice. Add enough lemon juice so that you can taste it in every bite. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. The longer it sets the more the flavors mesh together and the better it tastes!

I did not care for this recipe. A big disappointment.

Two unions is very over powering! If they were cooked, then added, it would be a great flavor. We had more union on each fork full then anything else! Over all, it was OK, but not great. My h...
