Keeping it Safe

Thaw chicken in the refrigerator, allowing 5 hours per pound of chicken. Never thaw chicken at room temperature due to the risk of bacterial growth. Safe Food Handling:

How to Easily Cut Chicken

Cutting boneless skinless chicken breasts into pieces can be a slippery task. Make it safer and prevent the knife from slipping by cutting the chicken while it is partially frozen. The firmer chicken is much easier to cut and handle.

Shortcut

Substitute 2 pkg. (6 oz. each) OSCAR MAYER CARVING BOARD Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Strips, chopped, for the fresh chicken. Bring chicken breast strips, salsa, water and VELVEETA to boil in large skillet. Continue as directed.
