Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
Visual you want to look at food and go , yum!
It's after you eat it, you dont want to have regret. So here is my success secret, which is helping so far.
I thaw boneless skinless chicken breasts and cover both sides liberally with seasoning of choice. Perhaps GrillMates Monterrey Chicken or any number of homemade spice mixes. Put in a 13x9 inch pan & spray with nonstick spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Always moist & delicious!
I like to be able to make a meal in less than 10 minutes... so to speed things up I store all my salad makins (lettuce, green onion, tomato, nuts, etc) in a bin in the refrigerator crisper. When I make a salad, I just take out the bin and it saves a lot of time. I use the same method for sandwiches

I figured out a trick a few years ago that makes salad dressing go much further. Put your bagged salad (or dried torn lettuce) in a ziploc bag, add dressing, seal and shake. The dressing ends up covering every part of the lettuce. Less is more!
