I know, I know, I said I'd never buy a whole chicken again, but Dominion had a two-for-one chicken sale! I froze one and stuffed the other with apples and onions before roasting it. That's why I had plenty of cooked chicken on hand. I needed to find interesting ways to use the fruits and vegetables from the Good Food Box. In particular, I had a head of quickly-wilting romaine lettuce, and I wanted to use the sweet potatoes (kamote! yay!).
I Googled up a recipe for chicken sweet potato salad and threw everything together quickly. It was a nice meal, and I liked the way the sweet potato contrasted with the balsamic vinegar. =)
Happy girl. Level up!
