My mom and grandma taught me how to prepare it the traditional way. The only problem is that the proper way requires a lot of chopping and long cooking times to prepare the chicken and all of the individual vegetables. Sometimes, a day of cooking can be incredibly satisfying…but sometimes you just want the taste of home without all the hassle. I’ve come up with a quick and tasty version that requires minimal cooking thanks to little tricks like using a store-bought rotisserie chicken and a microwave. With the help of pre-packaged shredded carrots and a box grater, there’s no chopping. I also managed to lighten it up a little bit from the original by swapping out some of the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt.
