Recipe Notes

  • Use leftover chicken breasts or rotisserie chicken.
  • To cook the chicken, line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Pound the chicken to an even thickness. Brush both sides lightly with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Roast in a preheated 425-degrees F oven for 15 to 25 minutes until center registered, depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts). Then let chill in the fridge.
