Chicken salad is delicious and healthy with this simple recipe.

Rotisserie chickens 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.

Besides being good for you, mixed greens are a great source of vitamins A, C, folate and antioxidants – greens can make any dish taste a little more zesty and appealing.
