Note: To give it that grilled taste, grill chicken breast about 7 or 8 minutes per side or until there is no pink in the thickest part of the chicken. If you don’t have time to cook chicken then substitute the chicken with canned chicken, (wont’ be breaded) or frozen, already cooked chicken strips. These are just a few ideas to make things with what you already have.
