Rotisserie Chicken Chopped Salad
with adobo honey vinaigrette

Active: 30 minTotal: 30 min

This has probably been our most popular entree salad, and we think the vinaigrette is definitely what made it such a loved dish. Feel free to tweak the flavors all you want and make it your own.
Smarts: Leftover adobo sauce can be frozen in small containers or even in ice cube trays so you can just pop out what you need for future uses.

Prep

  1. Rotisserie chicken - Take meat off the bone and shred. Use knife and fork or just hands. If making tomorrow's dinner too, just get it all done in one go. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  2. Make vinaigrette - Place everything but oil into a blender (you can also use the cup that came with your immersion blender). Blend until smooth. Then slowly drizzle in oil while blending. Season to taste with salt and pepper (or more adobo sauce). (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Green onions / Red peppers / Romaine lettuce - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Avocado - Cube.

Make

  1. Warm chicken in a microwave or in the oven for 15 minutes at 200F (93C) degrees if you want to serve it warm-ish in the salad. Divide salad ingredients (romaine, peppers, green onions, avocado, and rotisserie chicken) onto plates or bowls. Drizzle with vinaigrette.

The Adobo Honey Vinaigrette is a new favorite. I make it to go on salads to take for lunch. This salad combo was also very good.

Loved the dressing and now I know what to do with my left over Sam's Club rotisserie chicken. Thanks

Very happy with this. While you can add more veggies, I would definitely say keep the green onions and red bell peppers. I don't think green bell peppers would be as tasty.

Shocked at how the dressing took it from a pretty good salad to a fantastic one! Threw in some parsley that I had in the fridge. Would definitely make again.

Excellent salad! Will definitely add this to our repertoire. I wasn't sure if I'd like the vinaigrette since it seemed like an odd mix of flavors, but its delicious! Love the spicy kick. I recommend eating this with a french baguette so its a bit more filling and you can scoop up the leftover vinaigrette in your salad bowl. Nom nom!
