Baked Chicken Salad with Flying Fish Roe

What you do with leftover baked or roast chicken? Last week I baked a huge whole honey chicken but we can't even finish 1/2 of the whole chicken .Well,what should I do with the leftover? I de-boned all the meat and store it's in fridge before it's goes bad sitting in room temperature..The day after ,Eliot request for his lunch,he want the leftover chicken with some side dish on side..Suddenly I remember I bought a head of iceberg lettuce.I seldom buy iceberg lettuce but Eliot prefer iceberg lettuce rather then Romaine or Boston lettuce.Well,maybe I should tweak the baked chicken into something different and interesting with the iceberg lettuce than just serving the same baked chicken again,right? Since I have all the salad ingredients at home,why not? Viola!! a healthy and cooling baked chicken salad with tobiko(flying fish roe)!! I called it million dollar salad!!








Ingredients:

1 small head of iceberg lettuce,discard the outer layer,use hand to tear the lettuce into small pieces before soak in cold water for 1 hour,drained (do not use knife to cut lettuce,unless you can finish the lettuce right away if not the color will change into brownish the next day)

1 small cucumber or kirby ,peeled and shredded

1/2 carrot,peeled and shredded,soak in cold water to remove the flavor and color

1 cup shredded baked chicken

2 tbsp tobiko(flying fish roe)

4 tbsp mayonnaise

1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

1 cup crunchy sesame seed sticks



Dressing:

olive oil

vinegar

salt to taste

or your favourite blue cheese or ranch


Method:

1:Combine chicken,tobiko,mayonnaise and salt in a medium bowl,mix well.Remove lettuce from cold water,drain well before scoop 2 handful to a large plate.
2:Scatter handful of shredded Mexican blend cheese,sesame sticks,cucumber and carrot before scoop 2-3 tbsp chicken mixture on the lettuce.
3:Drizzling with your favourite dressing before serve cold.
