Expert Tips

We used 2 1/2 cups chicken from a deli rotisserie chicken. A 2-lb chicken yields about 4 cups chopped chicken.

To toast sesame seeds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
