I don't about you people, but I love boiled chicken from soup. Love it. Serve it with soup, especially if soup has vegies it is a whole meal in a bowl.

You are what you eat.

This is a really great main-course dinner salad. I imagine you could substitute boiled chicken for roasted:


cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons sherry or balsamic vinegar (or combination)
10 ounces roasted red peppers, drained and diced medium (1⅓ cups, divided)
1 small garlic clove, minced or pressed through garlic press
salt and ground black pepper
1 small shallot, minced
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
2 celery ribs, sliced very thin
cup roughly chopped pitted green olives
5 cups shredded roast chicken, room temperature
cup sliced almonds, toasted

1. Puree oil, vinegar, ⅔ cup roasted red peppers, garlic, teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper in blender until smooth. Transfer to bowl.

2. Add shallot, parsley, celery, olives, and ⅔ cup red peppers to bowl; stir to combine.

3. Add chicken and toss gently to combine; let stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and sprinkle with almonds. Serve immediately.

You can put a small onion in a pan with a spoon of oil until it gets a bit soft. Then add a big spoon of tomato paste, curry paste, juice of half a lemon and 100 ml of red wine and let it cook for 10 minutes.

Add 2 spoons of mango chutney, mix well and remove from fire. Next step is to let it cool down and mix everything with some good quality mayonnaise, about 200 ml of mayo.

To finish, cover your chicken with the dressing you just made, mixing very well. Leave it in the fridge and eat it cold.

I actually boil a whole chicken ahead of time and shred it and pack it in a couple of seperate ziplocs and freeze it. I do this because I use shredded chicken in a number of dishes.

Fried Rice
I make a potato, corn and chicken patties
Chicken, Corn soup
Chicken, Coconut Soup
Chicken Salad
Asian style salads
Wraps (thai style with peanut sauce, shredded chicken and veggies, with cilantro, lime and more chopped peanuts)

So in short, you can freeze it and it will stay perfectly fine. You can use it in soup if you are not inclined to use it in other dishes.

I just made a really good bbq chicken casserole with it: a layer of potatoes (or hash browns), a layer of sauteed red onions, a layer of pork 'n' beans, a layer of shredded chicken, douse it all w/bbq sauce and bake. It was delish!
