plan 1. take half, add the tomato paste, maybe thicken it up a little with some corn starch and then serve it over couscous with a dollop of plain yoghurt on top.

plan 2. take the other half and thicken it a little. Add some diced carrots and a little more salt, put in pie tin - cover with pie crust. Bake and serve as pot pie.

Those are all really good suggestions. I'm just posting to say what a great word de-crappify is! I love. I can see where I would find many uses for it. So thank you Catherine! Maybe it will make Webster's Dictionery someday.
Ok, I'm off now to de-crappify the mess the cat made on the carpet.

Drain off all the liquid.. Add more peppers and onions, add some hot peppers and ground red pepper, flash fry in a hot skillet and have Fajitas..

We do this on a regular basis for dinner. We use leftovers from other meals. The kids call it garbage soup (if it don't go in the soup it's going in the garbage).

I throw a couple of dashes of fish sauce and a hand full of roasted peanuts in each bowl to zing it up.

A little heavy cream makes just about everything taste better ( plus salt too)

I would cook some rice and steam some broccoli, when done throw the chicken in with it and add a can of cream of mushroom soup and a little milk. Put in casserole dish and top with cheese.Bake until all bubbly and brown on top. The cream of mushroom soup will add some of the extra salt you need.

My suggestion given you like curry is make a proper tasting curry and add this to it.

So here is what you need and yes it's quick but you need a few ingredients:

- Finely chopped onion
- Small can of tomato sauce
- Curry powder (more like 2 tbps of it)
- Some freshly chopped garlic and even ginger if you have it
- Cup of plain yogurt
- Some cilantro
- 4 tbsps of oil

Make a basic sauce. Heat the oil, add the onions once the oil is hot. The onions should be almost golden brown (that is why you need all this oil). Next add the ginger, garlic and curry powder and let it all toast for atleast 2-3 minutes in the hot oil and onions. Next add the tomato sauce and yogurt and reduce the heat and cover and let the gravy cook for atleast 20 minutes on the lowest setting.

Last step, Throw in your entire cooked chicken in it. Stir to make sure chicken is coated in the gravy. Throw in some fresh cilantro,

Serve with rice

I value lots of flavor so throwing in a little shake of this or that is not something I would recommend. Fixing a nice gravy is not that hard and you may already have some of this in the house. All the best.
