The 15-minute dish that will wow weeknight dinner guests

Hosting your monthly book club or women’s circle at your place always sounds like a good idea—until it’s the night before and you’re frantically trying to think of something classy to cook for dinner.

Your Google searches stop here. This sushi-inspired recipe looks like it was made for Instagram, but it’s a breeze to whip up. All you need is a few ingredients (most of which you probably already have on hand) and a cookie cutter, and you’ll have a total crowd-pleaser in no time flat.

The star ingredient (and how your friends will know you’re not trying to pass off takeout as your own creation) is PERDUE® SHORT CUTS® Carved Chicken Breast, which is filled with tons of juicy flavor and free of hormones (federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in poultry) and preservatives—plus no antibiotics ever.

The best part? It’s pre-cooked (but never frozen)—AKA it’s a totally delicious time-saver, so you can spend less time stressing over dinner and more time soaking up the friend-fueled fun times.
