Asian Chicken Salad

I love finding a new salad recipe.  This is one I’ve been making for many years and you can make it to fit whatever your family likes. It’s super easy and really yummy.

Do you love Costco Rotisserie Chicken?  I DO!  I like to keep shredded rotisserie chicken in my freezer to make weeknight dinners easy.  I especially like having it ready to go for salads, it makes it so quick and convenient. I’ll buy one whenever I’m at Costco and come home, pull it off the bone and divide between 2 containers to put in the freezer and then I’ve always got something I can use at the last minute.

Sometimes I’ll grill chicken or put a couple of breasts in a cast iron skillet to cook with some seasoning salt on them.  That’s what I did this time. Let cool slightly and slice thinly or chop up.

Break up the Ramen noodles (discard flavor pouch) and add almonds.  Put on a baking sheet and place in 350 degree oven to toast for 10 minutes until light golden brown.

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine then add dressing and toss again.

This time I added Napa cabbage, Mandarin oranges, Craisins & shredded carrots.

Couldn’t be any easier.
