- Using a fully cooked rotisserie chicken is an easy way to get cooked chicken when making chicken salad.
- If you don’t have a bento box-style container, use foil baking cups in a square container to create little spaces to hold ingredients. One-half cup or smaller-sized containers are great for dressings and sauces.
