“With rotisserie chickens so readily available, it's easy to buy a pre-roasted bird and pull the meat off the bones for use in recipes that would otherwise likely be too complicated for a weeknight meal. A little shredding and chopping is all it takes to serve up this delicious Thai-flavored chicken salad.”

This makes a really yummy lunch that's healthy and filling. I followed the recipe to a tee, except I omitted the mint. The honey roasted peanuts are a must in this - they were great!

I enjoyed this salad- quick, simple, tasty & healthy. As a personal preference I replaced the peanuts with toasted cashews- toasting the nuts is a must, or the flavour is lost. I loved how low-calorie the dressing is, but I found the fresh mint and cilantro quite over-powering when left in the dressing. I recommend straining out the herbs after allowing the flavours to mingle. I also added chopped sugar snap peas and baby spinach to add variety to the veggies.
