Another Easy Chicken Recipe Idea

Looking for ideas for turning a salad kit into a meal? Another easy chicken recipe idea for you is to cheat with chicken tenders in salads! Shhhh let them think you stood in the kitchen and battered and fried those babies. Personally I’m buying deli fresh chicken tenders and the rest is history!

The addition of chicken tenders and this delicious mostly homemade Yum Yum Sesame dressing will make this dish a family favorite. We love the crunch of the Asian salad.

My grocery store deli always has fresh little chicken tenders which are handy to keep around for a quick lunch or if you have a house full of hungry teenage boys like we do. 

Those chicken tenders are the perfect addition to salads for a quick and easy weeknight meal that satisfies everyone in the home.

Start with an Asian Salad Kit from the produce department. It’s a nice change from the popular garden salad we generally serve. Get the one with Wonton Strips, Almonds and Sesame Dressing. 

Ideas For This Easy Chicken Recipe

This meal is so easy to throw together with the only mixing being whipping up the dressing which isn’t quite from scratch but it is a blend of delicious flavors.

You can make this meal in a Hotel room on vacation with little to no mess

Unexpected dinner guest? Throw this together quickly. You can serve this meaty salad in a nice bit platter bowl as I have.

Long hard day at work and nothing planned for dinner? Here ya go!

Lazy Sunday afternoon at home!

Put it on your Meal Plan for an easy weeknight meal idea.

Pot Luck! They will love it and you don’t have to break a sweat cooking.

The recipe calls for you to mix your salad up in a bowl but you could also create individual bowls like I did for my crew or set a big pretty dish on the table. Everyone enjoys food that looks good on the table.

You can’t beat a quick and easy meal especially when there is no cooking involved!

THE DRESSING

The grocery store bag salad kit always comes with a little dressing packet. It is never enough! Don’t be afraid to give it a quick makeover and stretch how far it will go. We love Yum Yum Sauce at our house so we pretty much always have it on  hand. It’s great with our Shrimp Fried Rice recipe. 

We blend the dressing mix in the packet which is a Sesame dressing with a little Yum Yum sauce and the results were lip smacking delicious! Recipe included below.
