Quick Strawberry Chicken Salad for 2
I whipped this salad up in less than 20 minutes for Louann and she loved it! I had dinner at Rachel's house last week and she introduced me to the greatness of rotisserie chicken! A quick-fix meal staple.
1 rotisserie chicken
1 bag lettuce - use your favorite kind
1 small container of strawberries, sliced with egg slicer (neat trick!)
1 ball of fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes
1 bottle of Fat free or Light Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
Peel skin back and cut the breasts off of the chicken. Slice into bite-sized pieces. Distribute lettuce leaves onto two plates. Top with cubes of mozzarella, sliced strawberries and chicken. Drizzle balsamic vinaigrette on top. I served with a slice of Take-n-Bake french baguette. You can find these in the bread section at Ukrops and Kroger and they're super cheap and take about 10-12 minutes to bake.
Note: We agreed that it needs pine nuts for some crunch, and maybe even a tiny bit of finely diced red onion.
