Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Serve the family chicken pizza tomorrow night, and they won't know you got a head start with tonight's skillet dinner. What a great way to disguise those planned leftovers! Purchase 2 lb chicken already cut for stir-frying, if it is on sale or if you prefer to save preparation time. Use any short pasta that is in your pantry that is the same size as rotini, such as fusilli, penne, mafalda (mini-lasagna noodles) or elbow macaroni.
