Roasting a chicken on Sunday ensures that you have leftovers to use all throughout the week and this recipe is a great way to use some of those leftovers. Rice is mixed with carrots, celery, green bell pepper, scallions, and parsley for a dish with tons of vegetables and fresh flavors. A simple dressing of lime juice and olive oil adds a bit of tartness to the dish that is served over a bed of lettuce and topped with roasted chicken breast.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rice (cooked and cool)
  • 1 carrot (finely chopped)
  • 1 celery stalk (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 green onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • lettuce
  • 2 chicken breasts (roasted and in strips)

Directions

  1. The rice must be cool when making the salad. Add all the ingredients except for the lettuce and chicken. Mix carefully.
  2. Serve the rice on a bed of lettuce and place the chicken on top.
  3. The chicken may be served cold or warm.
