A rotisserie chicken is kitchen gold for the daily cook. It’s not cheating—it’s just smart cooking! That’s because rotisserie chickens are extra juicy, thanks to their hours turning on the spit, not to mention it majorly cuts down on prep time. This salad takes a kitchen sink approach to ingredients, resulting in something original and uniquely delicious. There are tortilla chips for crunch, barbecue sauce for flavorful tang, and avocado because, well, it just makes everything better. Unlike many dinner salads, it’s hearty enough to count as dinner, without leaving you hungry before bed.
