EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

You can use uncooked chicken breasts instead of the rotisserie chicken. After removing vegetables from skillet, melt 2 tablespoons margarine or butter in skillet; carefully add 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Cook over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until outsides turn white. Beginning with step 3, continue with recipe as written—except omit rotisserie chicken.

Kick up the heat by serving with hot pepper sauce—each person can choose their own heat level!
