Using up leftover rotisserie chicken just got easier with this Crunchy Asian Chicken Salad.
There’s something to be said about roasting more than one chicken at a time or in our case buying two rotisserie chickens from the store when time is not on our side.
While the chicken’s are sometimes smaller, it is also cheaper for us to buy them pre-cooked.
One of my favourite things to do is cook once and eat twice using leftovers. Lots of great food can be made using leftover chicken like casseroles, soups, salads, quesadillas, tacos, taquitos, nachos, pot pies, pasta dishes, sandwiches, wraps and more. It’s a winning situation as long as you are prepared for meal 2 or 3.
This Crunchy Asian Chicken Salad is a family pleasing quick dinner that can be ready in under 30 minutes or less if you cook your chicken the night before. Or buy it like we often do.
Toss together all ingredients, add dressing and top the salad with crunchy itchiban noodles and toasted cashews just before serving.
What do you love making with leftover chicken or turkey (which can be subbed in for any dish that calls for chicken).
