White Bean and Roasted Chicken Salad
Creamy beans, sweet tomatoes, earthy basil, and homemade vinaigrette elevate chicken salad to new heights. Cannellini beans, or white kidney beans, are smaller than Great Northern beans and add just the right texture. Great for picnics or lazy-day suppers, this salad stirs together in a flash.
Rotisserie chicken is your best friend when it comes to no-cook fare. Here are some tips for getting the most of the pre-cooked time-saver: 1) Pick up a rotisserie at the end of your shopped trip so it stays hot until you get home. 2) Serve or refrigerate within two hours. 3) Cut, shred, or chop chicken, and store it, uncovered, in a shallow container in the refrigerator to help it cool quickly. Cover the container when the chicken has cooled. 4) An average 2-pound rotisserie chicken yields 3 to 3½ cups of meat.
