If you were out enjoying the beautiful weather this weekend, you may have fired up your Gerhards appliance and made barbecue chicken for the first time. This can sometimes lead to copious amounts of leftovers, so if you don't want to eat the same thing all week, why not give it a healthy spin? According to the Food Network, leftover barbecue chicken can be a fabulous ingredient to incorporate into a refreshing spring Asian chicken salad.
First, you should get together all of your favorite salad ingredients like bell peppers, romaine lettuce, almonds, carrots and Asian accents like fresh mint or Thai basil leaves. Then, chop up the chicken into chunks and put all of your ingredients together into a large bowl where they can be tossed easily.
Next, you can make your dressing. A peanut vinaigrette is a fabulous way to meld all the flavors together, so combine a quarter of a cup of peanut oil, two tablespoons each of soy sauce and rice vinegar, a half of a teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of salt and pepper.
When all the ingredients come together, you'll have a delectable meal that's anything but ordinary. Best of all, you'll gain satisfaction knowing that none of your leftovers have gone to waste!
