Ingredients

  • 4 Cups With Perdue Oven Stuffer Whole Roaster, Extra Meaty
  • 4 Tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Grated Ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 4 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Cups Arugula
  • 1 Cup Celery, Chopped
  • 1 Cup Red Bell Peppers, Diced
  • 1/4 Cup Cilantro, Chopped
  • 2 Scallions, Sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Seeds, Optional

Directions

Step 1: Whisk

Whisk together the rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, grated ginger, soy sauce, honey, salt and pepper. While whisking, drizzle in the vegetable oil. Set aside.

TIP: Soy Sauce contains wheat. Tamari sauce looks and tastes like soy sauce, but contains little or no wheat. Try tamari sauce for a wheat or gluten free alternative.

Step 2: Toss

In a large bowl, toss together the shredded chicken, arugula, celery, red bell pepper, cilantro and scallions. Toss the chicken salad with the sesame ginger dressing.

Step 3: Serve

To serve, divide chicken salad between 4 plates. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

Sesame Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Sesame Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
