Eating healthy should be simple and accessible to everyone, and recipes using rotisserie chicken left overs can't get any easier!

I was looking at some of the recipes that called for fresh cilantro, and have a question... how do you prep it? Chop stems and all? Or pluck leaves and toss stems?

Karen, cilantro stems are used in recipes a lot in some Asian countries, but for salads or Mexican dishes I cut off the stems from the whole bunch, just below where the leaves start, and then chop the rest. So there's some stems in the chopped part, but not the thickest lower stems.
