Does anyone know how to make Sam's chicken salad that they make from their rotisserie chickens (not the one demonstrators make from the canned chicken)? Sam's has a refrigerator section near the meats that has the ready made meals that they sell. Well, about a month ago they were giving samples of the rotisserie chicken salad that they sell and it was REALLY good. I never bought their ready-made stuff because I think it's too expenseive. So I looked at the ingredients listed on the carton, but of course I forgot what they were cause I didn't write them down. So I was wondering if anyone has bought it or knows what the ingredients are..

Carole, I checked out the recipe section on Sam's Club website, and I found this recipe.
Chinese Chicken Salad
4 c. cubed cooked chicken breast
1/3 c. toasted slivered almonds
1/3 c. chopped green onion
1 red or green bell pepper cut into rings
1 pkg. Maruchan Ramen noodles, Oriental or Chicken Flavor, crushed
Lettuce and/or young spinach leaves
3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
Ramen seasoning packet (from noodle packet)
1/3 c. salad oil
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
dash dried red pepper flakes
Whisk dressing ingredients together; set aside. Combine chicken, almonds, green onions, and bell pepper rings. Toss with dressing and broken Ramen noodles. Serve on chilled, lettuce-lined plates. Yield: 4 servings
This is similar to a salad I make using cabbage. It isn't as good (IMHO) the next day as the noodles loose their crunch slightly in the dressing.
Diana--That sounds like a good and more unusual chicken salad. I copied to try. Thanks. But that's still not the one that they make and sell. It was more of the standard mayo-type chicken salad, but there must have been some other ingredients which I can't remember that made it taste so good. I was at Sam's the other day and I was going to write down the ingredients, but of course my luck was that they didn't have any made up in the refrigerator section. Hopefully they'll have some the next time that I go.
