Shredded Thai Chicken Salad
Salad
2 C shredded rotisserie chicken
1 C julienne carrots (match-stick cut)
1 C broccoli slaw mix
1 large green onion chopped
Dressing
2 TBLS creamy peanut butter
2 TBLS rice vinegar
1 TBLS vegetable oil
1 TBLS honey
4 tsp soy sauce
1/8 tsp red pepper sauce
Garnish

peanuts

In a large bowl, toss all of the salad ingredients together.

In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients. Just before serving, drizzle over salad and toss until evenly coated.

How easy is that??

So... a quick stop at the store for a rotisserie chicken.

Garnish with cilantro (and peanuts, but I just thought of them while typing this out... maybe while we were eating it too... the original recipe didn't call for them but I thought they'd be really nice!)

It probably took me longer to type this than it did to actually make it!

Wicked fast and easy... Wicked Tasty!

I love those chickens-they are great to eat as is, or like you did by shredding the meat. And for $6, it is pretty economical. Plus you have the carcass for stock. Win-win, I'd say!
