Transfer fully cooled leftovers to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave at 50% power in 30 second increments until fully warmed.

You can freeze for up to 4 months, thaw and reheat. You may need to add a little water to help rehydrate the pasta.

Expert Tips

  • Cut chicken into as evenly sized pieces as possible for even cooking and the best results.
