ISO new ideas for leftover cooked chicken

Kim grilled some bone-in chcken breasts last night, and they were delicious. Now I have leftover cooked chicken to be creative with, and I wonder if anyone has some new ideas, aside from pot pie or chicken salad.

Quesadillas!

Get some tortillas and add cheese, guacamole, jalapenos, chopped scallions, taco sauce, chicken and whatever else you want and heat them.

I use a non-stick skillet. Heat it up, butter the pan and lay in the constructed quesadilla. Cook until the tortilla is browned and the cheese starts to melt. Then flip it using an appropriate sized plate and do the other side.

I tear the left over chicken into pieces and make chicken salad sandwhiches. Really tasty. Add mayo, some dijon mustard, a bit of pepper and onion and wha la!

the first thing i thought was cacciatore. i like cacciatore with both brown meat and white, and i've even used leftover turkey, but split breasts will work. the smoke from the grill will be a nice added touch, too.

in a deep skillet, brown some onions, garlic, and sweat mushrooms in evoo, add skinned/crushed tomatoes, oregano, basil, thyme, and just a pinch of rosemary (optional cuppa red wine). simmer on med and stir for a few minutes to help evaporate some of the excess liquid, then put the chicken in the sauce, cover and simmer on low until the chicken begins to fall off the bone. carefully remove chicken and discard bones. uncover sauce, add chicken meat back in and reduce to desired thickness. serve with pasta and a good amount of grated romano on the chicken.

One of my absolute favourite things to do with leftover chicken (or turkey) is to toss it in a pan with loads of honey garlic sauce (homemade or store bought) and sautee it for a while. To that I often add thin slices of onion (or green onion), carrots and something green like snap peas. Serve it over your favourite Asian noodles and enjoy

1 1/2 cups mushrooms sliced
1/4 cup milk

Combine a can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup sour cream. Add about 2 to 3 cups of leftover chicken. Add about 2 cups frozen peas and/or carrots. Top wiht crushed Ritz crackers. Bake at 350* until heated through.
