Chef Tips To remove breasts from rotisserie chicken in 1 piece, use the tip of a sharp knife to cut lengthwise along each side of the keel bone (the bone running lengthwise along the top of the chicken), angling the knife blade along the rib cage.
For all white meat, use 2 rotisserie chickens, and use leftover dark meat to make enchiladas or chicken salad.
> If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure, you know it’s ripe and ready to eat. Buy your avocado according to when you plan to use it. If you are using it tonight, grab one already ripe. If you won’t be making this recipe for a few days, grab one that is more firm when shopping, knowing it will ripen over the next few days.
