Leftover chicken: Any recipe ideas?

Recommended Posts

...Anyone have ideas for using leftover chicken?

 

There is about half of a medium sized bird, which has been roasted.

I always do a casserole. I give the carrots chopped garlic and chopped onion about five or six minutes in the microwave. Then add the stock and thickening and meat and transfer to the oven for about 45 to 50 minutes, adding frozen peas about fifteen minutes before the end. I dish it up with rice boiled in the microwave rice cooker in chicken stock for ten minutes. I usually use Patna and wild rice.

Chicken & mushroom pie (the crispy easy way). Make a thick chicken gravy, add cubed leftover chicken meat, a chopped onion and chopped mushrooms (size to your own preference) and cook until the mushrooms are tender. In the meantime, roll out some ready made puff pastry into a square, cut corner to corner twice so that you have four triangles and bake those pieces until nicely cooked and done.

Place one of the pastry triangles on a plate, add the filling and place a second piece of pastry on top. Pastry all crisp, no soggy bottom. Repeat for the other pie.

 

Serve with appropriate accompaniments.

a find that chicken left to go cold and then warmed up again develops an unpalatable taste.  My wife once prepared a curry and used left over chicken without my knowledge. I could taste it as soon as I started to eat it.

 

There is a restaurant near us which used to serve meals at half price after 4pm and before 6pm. They did excellent spit roast chicken. Twice I have sent my meal back because I could tell it was stuff left over from lunchtime that had been reheated.

 

Hence the waste bin.

If reheated leftover chicken is considered distasteful then it is always possible to have it in a salad or in a sandwich. I find chicken and stuffing sandwiches particularly nice.

Using in-stock items...

I made some tasty Onion Gravy [Recipe] (some of which I used with the chicken pieces for brief micro heating); +M&S Potato Rosti Cakes; +Steamed Purple Sprouting Broccoli; +Boiled Carrot Batons.

 

On previous occasions, I have used a similar version of both yours and -pops- suggestions.  Next time, I'll try the Belatucadrus Risotto version.  

Chicken is excellent value - I can always achieve two or three meals from one bird.  :wink:

I doubt it...  I'm not as tasty as I used to be in the 'olden days'.  :biggrin:

Reverting to the risotto suggestion, I find that using orzo instead of rice makes the whole risotto thing a lot easier - you don't need to add liquid every few minutes - add it all at the start and leave it to it. Obviously keep your eye on it whilst cooking.

 

In case you don't know, orzo is rice shaped pasta.
