This was the first rotisserie chicken I've ever deassmbled solo. I'll warmly accept your congratulations.

This was the first time I've ever disassembled a rotisserie chicken solo. I'll warmly accept your congratulations. (It was a little harder than I thought it would be!)

  •  1 2- to 2 1/2-pound rotisserie chicken
  • 4 medium carrots, coarsely grated
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 big romaine leaves
Bibb and Boston lettuce leaves also make nice cups for the chicken salad.

Using a fork or your fingers, shred the chicken meat, discarding the skin and bones. IN a large bowl, combine the chicken, carrots, scallions, tarragon, salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, mustard, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Divide the romaine leaves among plates, top with the chicken mixture, and drizzle with the vinaigrette.

Makes 4 servings.

If you're not planning to eat the salad all at once, don't drizzle the vinaigrette over the whole dish. Pack away the vinaigrette on its own container and dress the salad right before serving.

  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, cut crosswise in 1-inch strips (about 12 cups)
  • 1 2- to 2 1/2-pound rotisserie chicken, meat shredded
  • 2 peaches, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 ounces blue cheese or feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, chicken, peaches, cheese and almonds on a platter.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Drizzle over the salad.

Makes 6 servings.
