Brilliant Uses for Plastic Take-Out Container Lids
Try it: Plastic takeout-container lids, either 7-inch circular or rectangular, make great mini, disposable cutting boards for chicken breasts or boneless thighs, says Aron. If you're preparing, say, a stir-fry that requires you to cut the meat into chunks, lay the lid upside down on the counter (you can place a damp paper towel under it to prevent slipping). Place one piece of meat on the lid at a time, cut, then transfer the pieces to the pan or a bowl. When you're finished, rinse the lid and toss it in the recycling, or trash, bin.
