For the most part we only buy whole chickens, as it’s usually cheaper that way then buying packs of specific parts (legs, thighs, etc). Sometimes I make Kittencal’s Best Blasted Rapid-Roast Chicken, as it is a 1 HOUR rotisserie chicken you can make in your oven and it turns out better then the store-bought! Or sometimes we them in our Asian soups, occasionally casseroles, etc. But every once in a while we have leftover chicken, but not enough to really make anything substantial out of. On those days I love to use it in a homemade salad, and this one is my favorites. Super simple, extremely tasty, and most will have all of the ingredients on hand.
- a big bowl of lettuce (meal size)-I use iceberg or romaine
- 1 batch of my favorite homemade dressing
- cold leftover chicken, chopped or torn in strips
- veggies of your choosing-I usually do broccoli and tomatoes
I usually make the dressing in a large bowl first (what I will end up eating out of), then toss the rest of the ingredients in and mix well.
