Vietnamese Chicken Salad

Looking to streamline your weeknight cooking without sacrificing flavor? Grab a rotisserie chicken! With inspiration taken from the classic Vietnamese sandwich, the bánh mì, this simple chicken salad comes together quickly, and tastes a bit exotic.

Since Vietnam was formerly a French colony, its cuisine exhibits many French influences. So it’s only natural to pair this Vietnameseinspired chicken salad with some type of French bread — either a croissant or a baguette works perfectly here. If using a baguette, halve it lengthwise, quarter it crosswise, then tear out some of the soft bread in the center to make room for the flavorful chicken salad.
