Tips  

Short on time? Shred precooked deli rotisserie chicken instead of cooking your own.

Don't walk away from those nuts! If you can smell them, you should check on them.

Pecans can be toasted in 6-inch skillet over medium-low heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins and pecans become fragrant. Toast extra to keep on hand in the freezer.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
