Precooked supermarket rotisserie chickens are convenient, but the meat is often dry. We've solved that problem by anointing it with a moist, tasty dressing. The leftovers make a wonderful filling for sandwiches


Ingredients

  • 1 rotisserie chicken , (about 1 kg)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp peeled, grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced celery , (sliced on the diagonal)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion , (sliced on the diagonal)
  • 2 tbsp coarsely chopped celery leaves , (optional)

Instructions

  • Separate chicken meat from skin and bones and shred into bite-sized pieces. Place meat in a large bowl or storage container and set aside.
  • Measure mayonnaise into a small bowl. Slowly add sesame oil, whisking constantly, until well combined. Whisk in soy sauce and ginger.
  • Place sesame seeds in a small dry skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes or until sesame seeds are toasted. Scrape seeds into a small bowl and set aside.
  • Add dressing to the chicken and toss together. Add celery and green onions, and toss until just combined. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and celery leaves.
