2. Rotisserie Chicken
Rotisserie chickens are a convenient and healthy choice whenever a recipe calls for cooked chicken. Always remove the skin before chopping or shredding the meat. They’re available in a variety of flavors, and all are great options since most of the added sodium will be discarded with the skin. We especially love shredded rotisserie chicken in Chicken and Guacamole Tostadas or Chicken and Glass Noodle Salad.
3. Bagged Greens
4. Fresh Pasta
Fresh pasta recipes: Quick Crisp Ravioli with Roasted Tomato Sauce, Pasta with Fresh Tomato-Basil Sauce, or Warm Tortellini and Cherry Tomato Salad
5. Canned Broth
Test kitchen tip: Simmer canned stock or broth with a bay leaf, whole spices, or dried crushed herbs that fit your recipe's flavor profile to boost taste.
