Probably like you, I'm always trying to create new recipe ideas using leftover rotisserie chicken. This one brings leftover lemon pepper rotisserie chicken, that you would buy from your local grocery store, to a whole new level. This slightly sweet and crunchy salad can be served on a bed of romaine lettuce with sliced ripe avocado or on toasted mini sandwich slices (your choice of flavor) as a unique luncheon main course or appetizer for special guests.

  • Combine chicken, red peppers, and celery in a large bowl. Add salt and pepper and toss until just mixed.

  • Mix mayonnaise, cilantro, honey, sesame oil, and ginger together until well blended. Fold dressing into the chicken mixture and toss to coat. Add mandarin oranges and the cooled almonds; stir until well blended.

Cook's Note:

If you don't buy prepared rotisserie chicken, then you can bake your own for this recipe as well. Both are perfectly acceptable and impart lots of intricate flavors, but are so simple to make.

Overall this recipe was good. For my taste I think it would have been better without the mandarin oranges. It was a very good and unique take on chicken salad that I will be making again. Read More
