This Easy Asian Chicken Salad is my go-to busy weeknight recipe. Crunchy veggies, fresh herbs, and a bright, spicy Asian-inspired dressing are mixed with shredded rotisserie chicken for an easy, healthy dinner.
In a large salad bowl or serving platter, mix the lettuces, sliced cucumber, sliced radish, cilantro and mint. Top with shredded rotisserie chicken.
Mix in the olive oil, lime juice, rice wine vinegar, and a splash of fish sauce if using. I add the dressing ingredients right into the salad, rather than mixing together first, for a fuss-free prep. Mix the salad, top with flakey sea salt and a bit of pepper, and taste to determine if dressing needs adjustment.
Drizzle with chili oil and serve immediately.
This recipe makes enough for 2 hungry people for dinner, or 3+ people for a lighter lunch or side. I like to save a portion for lunch before we dig in - otherwise it's so addicting that it will all get eaten.
I love rotisserie chicken for this recipe because of its ease of use. If you prefer not to use rotisserie chicken, you can use whatever chicken you have on hand, or even poach a few chicken breasts. But if you don't have to cook, why would you?
