Quick Asian Chicken Salad Recipe:

Time Saving Recipe Tips:

  • Buy your matchstick carrots instead of taking the time to peel and chop them.
  • You can find the fried wonton strips in the salad topping aisle, by the croutons.
  • Buy a rotisserie chicken and shred all the chicken up and save it in zip close bags to use throughout the week.
  • Better yet, you can now find already shredded rotisserie chicken in the deli section of your grocery store, saving you an extra step!
  • Use bottled sesame ginger dressing (my favorite is Lite house brand).
