EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Choose leftover cooked chicken, packaged cooked chicken slices or deli-sliced chicken for these delicious sandwiches.

Onions will caramelize evenly if they are sliced uniformly.

The onions could be caramelized a day ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator. Heat thoroughly in a skillet or microwave just before using.
