Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
Leftover rotisserie chicken can be used as is, without reheating, if you're going to make it a filling for sandwiches. Using cold chicken will keep the vegetables in your sandwich crisp and fresh.
Make cooking a lot easier and more enjoyable by using good quality silicone baking mats. Not only are silicone mats sturdy and durable. Because they're non-stick, you can also cut your clean-up time in half.
