How to Chop Onions

Cut a peeled whole onion into thin slices about 1/4 inch thick. Stack two or three slices, then make several crosswise cuts, about 1/4 inch apart, in both directions down through onion slices.


Purchasing a fully-cooked rotisserie chicken at the supermarket is a quick way to obtain cooked chicken for recipes. Check to make sure the chicken is hot, not just warm, when you purchase it. If you are not using the chicken immediately, cut it into pieces and store in tightly covered containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
