Millionaire Rotisserie Chicken Salad
We made this for dinner tonight, and we all loved it! Alyssa went back for seconds and Joshua went back for thirds (and that's even on a night we had a dessert, too)! Using a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken makes this meal super quick to prepare. The home-cooked sauce adds a ton of incredible flavor.
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 scallions, thinly sliced on an angle
One 2-inch piece ginger, grated
2 large cloves garlic, grated
1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (we used 1/4 teaspoon)
Grated peel and juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup tamari (dark soy sauce)
3 tablespoons honey
1 rotisserie chicken, skin discarded and meat thinly sliced
1 small or 1/2 large head napa cabbage, shredded (about 4 cups)
1.In a small saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the scallions, ginger, garlic, black pepper and crushed red pepper and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the lime peel and lime juice, then whisk in the tamari and honey to combine. Turn off the heat.
2.In a large bowl, toss the chicken and cabbage with the sauce to combine well.
