This isn't the typical chicken salad. It has an Asian twist.

Basically, you start with shredded chicken (warm it up if you haven't just cooked it), top it with 2-3 julienned scallions, a couple Tbsp. soy sauce, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1 tsp. sesame oil--this can vary to taste.

Then you heat 1/4 cup of peanut oil in a skillet on the stove until it smokes, and carefully pour it over the chicken and other ingredients. It will spatter, so don't stand too close. Toss it to mix, and eat.

This recipe came from Geoff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet and is very good. He also had a recipe for a chicken salad that used a whole poached chicken and had a light dressing made with whipping cream and a few other ingredients. I can't find it this morning, but I can look later on.
