Rotisserie chickens have become all the rage in our local supermarkets—and why not? They can be the base of a quick, almost-homemade dinner in no time. Here, roasted chicken turns into an easy salad with some crusty garlic bread on the side.
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled
- 3 tablespoons cider vinegar or white-wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
- 8 cups mixed salad greens
- Four 1/2-inch slices whole-wheat country bread, toasted
- One 2-pound roasted chicken (hot or cold), skin discarded, sliced into large pieces (see Ingredient Note)
- Ingredient Note:
Store-bought rotisserie chicken is convenient and practical—but much higher in sodium than a home-roasted bird. Even the unseasoned varieties have been marinated or seasoned with salty flavorings. People with hypertension should think twice before choosing store-bought.
4 ounces home-roasted chicken: 100 mg sodium
4 ounces rotisserie chicken: 350-450 mg sodium
Mince 1 garlic clove and whisk with the vinegar, oil and olives in a medium bowl. Toss the greens in the dressing to coat well.
Rub each bread slice with the remaining garlic clove. (Discard the garlic). Divide the salad among 4 plates, place the chicken on top and serve with the bread.
