Expert Tips

Use your noodle when you're short on time! Consider serving this simple dish with hassle-free rotisserie chicken from the grocery deli department.

Ok, you can cheat with the fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Look for 100 percent pure lemon juice from concentrate in your grocery freezer section. Not only is it a good thing to have on hand, it's free of preservatives and additives, and it just plain tastes better than the bottled stuff!
