Did You Know?
Fresh cilantro is actually the leaf of the coriander seed. Coriander--a tiny, round, aromatic spice--is used most often in baking and tastes nothing like its fresh and fragrant cilantro leaves.
Time Saver
If you don't have much time, pick up a roasted chicken from the deli. One roasted chicken will yield about 2 to 2 1/2 cups of cut-up chicken.
