Rotisserie chicken comes to the rescue for a speedy no-cook dinner. On the hottest of days, all you have to do is quick-pickle carrots and daikon radish (or any other radish will do!), make a quick flavorful sauce to dress the chicken, and mix the peanuts and herbs for a super easy relish. Make it an interactive family meal and have everyone assemble their own taco.
