For a refreshing meal that doesn’t involve the grill, check out this cold Asian-inspired noodle dish. Start with a shredded grocery store rotisserie chicken, then cook some spaghetti noodles to al dente and allow to cool. Toss with a delicious and easy homemade Asian-inspired dressing, peanuts, red onion, scallions, basil and lettuce. Delish!
