So, this little series of posts is to help Big Mama out, and because the West Coast needs to perk up and get their Summer on already! (I know, I know...you would if you could. But it's hot, here, and the tomato scare is on the way out...and we need some summer food around here, y'all!)
Big Mama, this one's for you. Oh, and get the rotisserie chicken from Costco - it's the same price as anywhere else (about $6), but it's nearly twice the size!
Millionaire Rotisserie Chicken Salad (4 servings) (From Rachel Ray)
3 T. vegetable oil
4 scallions, thinly sliced on an angle
One 2 inch piece ginger, grated
2 large cloves garlic, grated
½ teaspoon coarse black pepper
Grated peel and juice of one lime
¼ cup tamari (dark soy sauce)
3 Tablespoons honey
1 rotisserie chicken, skin discarded and meat thinly sliced
1 small or ½ large head napa cabbage, shredded (about 4 cups)
1. In a small saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the scallions, ginger, garlic and black pepper and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the lime peel and lime juice, then whisk in the tamari and honey to combine. Turn off the heat.
2. In a large bowl, toss the chicken and cabbage with the sauce to combine well.
