Personal Empower tips

MAKE
AHEAD

Marinate diced chicken for at least 24h for a deeper flavour and better meat texture.

BUY
SMART

Don’t use expensive cooking sprays, they burn fast on the pan and pure waist of money. Buy “Silicone Basting Brush” instead and use it to grease your pan with minimum amount of oil.
