Melissa Rubel Jacobson uses a store-bought rotisserie bird in her reinvented chicken salad. She spikes the mayonnaise with chile sauce and toasted sesame oil and adds water chestnuts for crunch.    More Fast Chicken Recipes  

How to Make It

Step

In a medium bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the sambal oelek, mustard and sesame oil. Stir in the chicken, water chestnuts and scallions and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the chicken salad into the lettuce cups and top with a slice of avocado. Serve with lime wedges.

Make Ahead

The chicken salad can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Suggested Pairing

Spicy Asian dishes like this chicken salad tend to pair best with off-dry (i.e., lightly sweet) white wines. Riesling is one good option. Washington state is a great source for lime-scented Riesling. Another terrific choice is an off-dry Pinot Gris from New Zealand.
