Cheat’s Warm Chicken Salad


Hello hungry peoples,

A quick mid-week healthy meal is a blessing and even I lose culinary puff as the week progresses. I don’t know what corner store take-outs  do to their roast chicken (I assume it involves a lot of fat) but they are ridiculously delicious. My favourite place to get a roast chicken is at my old stomping ground at the Nicholls shops. It is a little further afield now but worth the journey. The owners wife is also quite skilled at making the sauces that they use on their delicious burgers. If your in the neighbourhood, check them out.
