Really Tasty Asian Chicken Salad
Overall, I found this to be a really flavorful recipe, and relatively easy to assemble. I purchased the suggested size rotisserie chicken, and used only the white meat. I felt it was a little dry, and could have used a bit more sauce for that much chicken. I really liked the avocado slice and lime juice as a garnish.
