This is an absolutely delicious recipe. It is perfect with left over rotisserie chicken, turkey, the day after Christmas or any time you have leftover chicken. Any portion of the chicken can be used, thighs, breasts or legs. If using turkey the white meat is best but it really is a matter of taste.
I used Skippy peanut butter. Seeing as soy sauce and peanut butter are both already salty, there is no need to add salt at all and in fact, I use the low sodium soy sauce as well. If you want to give the dressing a bit more kick, feel free to add a pinch of cayenne pepper. This salad keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 2 days as long as you have not added the lettuce. I would suggest to add the sesame seeds just before serving or they will lose all crunchiness. Do try it, you will love it!

To toast your sesame seeds, place them in a sauté pan with no oil or butter and cook over medium heat for about 4 to 5 minutes until golden. You need to watch carefully as they go from white to burnt in the blink of an eye.
