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.
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.
