* Healthy Hint: for chicken with less fat remove skin and reduce butter to 2 Tbsp.

* Leftover Magic: try french style chicken salad lettuce wraps. combine 2 cups leftover chicken with 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery. 1 tsp. grated lemon zest , 2 tbsp. toasted sliced almonds and 2 tbsp olive oil. roll up in crisp lettuce leaves and enjoy.
