The World's Most Delicious Asian Chicken Salad

My friend Jen prepared this dish for my Chef Spotlight Dinner where we focused on health conscious chefs. She chose to highlight chef Kathleen Daeleman and brought this delicious chicken salad!

  1. This looks great!

  2. That looks delicious! It seems like it would be a great light spring/summer meal.

  3. Hi! This is Jen. I made this one! Just wanted to post some time saving techniques. If you purchase a pre-roasted chicken at your market's deli counter it saves you time, dishes, cleanup and tastes just as good. I had a hard time finding both miso AND rice wine vinegar. I don't have a car, so getting to any specialty stores was too difficult. Instead, I purchased a lite asian sesame ginger pre-bottled dressing and it was yummy! I'm making this for an office potluck tomorrow. Package ingredients separately for transport and assemble just prior to serving so the tastes maintain individuality. Enjoy!! :) ~Jen
