Rotisserie chickens have become all the rage in our local supermarkets—and why not? They can be the base of a quick, almost-homemade dinner in no time. Here, roasted chicken turns into an easy salad with some crusty garlic bread on the side.

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar or white-wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped

  • Ready In

  1. Mince one garlic clove and whisk with vinegar, oil and olives in a medium bowl. Toss greens in the dressing to coat well.
  2. Rub each bread slice with the remaining garlic clove. (Discard garlic.) Divide the salad among 4 plates, place chicken on top and serve with the bread.
  • Ingredient Note: Store-bought rotisserie chicken is convenient and practical—but much higher in sodium than a home-roasted bird. Even the unseasoned varieties have been marinated or seasoned with salty flavorings. People with hypertension should think twice before choosing store-bought. 4 ounces home-roasted chicken: =100 mg sodium 4 ounces rotisserie chicken: 350-450 mg sodium
