Roasted Chicken Salad With Garlic Toasts Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Roasted Chicken Salad With Garlic Toasts

Although I love roasting a whole chicken at home, sometimes there simply isn't time. When that's the case, I head to my local supermarket and pick up cooked chicken. If I'm serving friends, I'll purchase an entire rotisserie chicken, but if cooking for just myself, I simply buy one breast. The things you can do with a store-bought chicken are endless. This recipe uses the chicken to make a quick salad that's paired with toasty garlic bread. It's a great base recipe that can be added to and modified. Toss in vegetables, cheese, or nuts to make it more complex.
