Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Trimming Fresh Asparagus
Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.
Tip 2
Creative Leftovers
Shred any remaining chicken and serve with warm corn tortillas.
