Dave over at My Year on the Grill has been running several posts about those grocery rotisserie chickens. I too use them endlessly! Especially in salads and casseroles. I buy them of an evening just after they’ mark them half price, bring them home, strip them and freeze them in usable recipe proportions. It makes life so easy!

1 head NAPA cabbage
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1 cup snow peas, halved
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1 can mandarin oranges, drained well*
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
1/4 cup crushed cashews
Crispy Wonton strips
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons water
few sprinkles white pepper

  • Toss salad ingredients together except the crispy wonton noodles.
  • Pour on dressing and toss again.
  • Top with wonton noodles.

*I often use fresh cutie tangerines and when I do, I peel them and soak them in the dressing before I prepare the salad.
