Help! Need a little Asian-flavored chicken salad for tonight.

c oliver | Jan 15, 2009 10:22 AM

My husband left go to Costco - an hour away - and I stayed home. I was planning on a litle app of tuna tartare and went ahead and fixed a diced avocado with lemon, soy sauce and sesame oil. I serve them together with crackers and it's really good. But he just called and Costco was out of tuna. He's going to check TJs. But if it's not available, I'd like to do something with chicken to go with the avocado. I have some leftover roast chicken (thanks Mister MMRuth!) and was thinking I could use the same condiments for that but seems like it needs at least a tiny amount of mayo-equivalent for "stickiness." But I also do a little chicken salad that's lemon juice, salt, pepper and just enough mayo to hold it together. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. I SO envy those of you who live close to all things food. Sigh.
