It’s a Monday again and a long taxing week lies ahead of us but this recipe will definitely ease you in terms of meal preps because it is super easy to make and tastes delicious.

Sometimes the best way to change the way you cook is to not cook at all.

For some weeknight meals, we grab a cooked rotisserie chicken from the supermarket, which allows us to focus on loading up the shredded meat with flavour.

It’s a trick we use for this impromptu chicken salad from our book “COOKish,” which limits recipes to just six ingredients without sacrificing flavour. And it’s the perfect thing to throw together at the last minute before that Labor Day cookout without having to turn on the oven during a hot summer day.

For this recipe, we skip the mayonnaise and instead use another shortcut that packs complex flavour into one ingredient — red pepper jelly. The slight bitterness and vegetal quality of the peppers help to balance the sugars.

Two tablespoons of white vinegar brighten the dressing, and thinly sliced scallions or red onions contribute a sharp bite. And canned black-eyed peas are an easy way to add substance. We let the beans soak in the dressing for 10 minutes so they absorb more flavour, which also gives time to shred the chicken.

An average-size, store-bought rotisserie bird will yield enough shredded chicken for this recipe.

The salad is especially good on top of leafy greens or served with a hunk of cornbread. And it’s all done and ready to serve in under 30 minutes.
