Quick Chicken – “Ariba!”

April 25, 2017

Quick Tip – Grab a pre-roasted chicken for a tasty homemade dish!

When I’m in a pinch for time, I’ll pick up a roasted chicken from the market. They’re great because you can make a variety of “home cooked” meals from Indian curry’s, to Mexican-style meals.

This is a family favorite; I like to serve it tostada-style, over greens, while kids like to make burritos.
