Left over roasted chicken.....what that????

If we have any left over..I would foil it..not refrigerate it...reheat in the foil in a slow oven..and finish it off....

Chop it up and use it in white bean chili. Really good.

Another Tetrazzini fan here!! Last night I made this one, but used approx. 4 cups of cooked turkey that I had diced up & frozen (in some turkey & chicken broth) from the Thanksgiving bird. It came out wonderfully, & was perfect for 2 people (with some leftovers for my lunch ).

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini

3 to 4 cups cooked chicken or turkey, diced or cut into bite-size pieces
salt and pepper to taste
8 ounces fine noodles or thin spaghetti, broken in half, cooked, and drained
6 tablespoons butter
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup half-and-half
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup dry sherry
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
seasoned dry bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 425°.
Cook spaghetti or noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-low heat; sauté sliced mushrooms until golden.
In a saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter; stir in flour, and approx. 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir until smooth; add chicken broth and half-&-half. Cook, stirring, until sauce is thickened. Add chicken, cooked mushrooms, and sherry; heat through. Place noodles or spaghetti in a buttered baking dish; pour on sauce. Top with Parmesan cheese and a sprinkling (small handfull) of seasoned bread crumbs. Bake at 425° for 15 to 20 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

I love having leftover chicken...it has so many possibilities!

Cooked chicken + sliced smoked sausage + Zatarains Gumbo Mix = Chicken Gumbo. Add okra if you wish.
Cooked chicken + cooked noodles + broccoli + mushrooms + cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup + cheese = Cheesy Chicken & Noodles
Cooked chicken + chopped hard-boiled eggs + sweet pickle relish + mayo = chicken salad.
Delete the relish, substitute sliced olives & grated cheese, spread on French bread or bun, wrap in foil and heat in 350 oven till cheese is melted for Hot Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Cooked chicken + mushrooms + frozen peas + pimentoes + white sauce over bisquits or toast = chicken a la king
Cooked chicken + Rice-a-Roni + bag of stir-fry vegies = chicken stir-fry

I could go on, but you get the idea...just look through your pantry for ideas.

We get by with a little help from our friends

I love to eat leftover chicken - put in a plate in the refrigerator and then warm it up and eat it.

My wife has a recipe she call s chicken fried rice. Smiliar to ome of the other ideas. Fry some chopped onion and garlic, stir in uncooked rice (for however many portion you want and fry for a short time. Add some chicken or vegetable stock to cook the rice. Towards the end of cooking add peas, sweetorn and the chopped chicken. Finish cooking the rice and season and serve.
