Leftover grilled chicken is an easy and quick way to create a meal the next day. When you are cooking or grilling chicken make extra for another meal and it will eliminate a step. Add your favorite ingredients and a meal is on the table fast. If you donâ€™t have all the ingredients being used, add what you have on hand or what you would prefer.Â Also orzo pasta would be a great substitute for the Israeli style couscous.Â Â Lemon Infused Olive Oil can be purchased on-line at Spicewood Food Company.
