What To Do With Leftover Chicken? My 5 Original Ideas.

Roast chicken is good.

But you will admit that after two or three meals, you start to regret having eaten the bulk of the aisle!

To avoid seeing it end up in the trash, here are five recipe ideas for reusing your leftover chicken without risk of overdose!

A salad of pasta, vegetables and chicken

Boil pasta in water. Cut a tomato, a little cucumber and pepper into small cubes. Cut your chicken into cubes. Add all these ingredients to your cooled pasta. Salt, pepper and then season with vinaigrette (or mayonnaise for those who are not afraid for their line!). You have a delicious salad, very balanced, and perfect for your lunch at work!

Good fajitas

Your leftover chicken can also be used to make very economical fajitas. Brown a sliced ​​onion in a little olive oil, add half a pepper cut into strips, then your pieces of chicken. Let come back for a few minutes. Garnish the pancakes that you have previously purchased in the trade with this preparation. Add a few lettuce leaves, a little tomato and you're done!

Bean and chicken pan fried

Fry a shallot in olive oil. Add your chicken pieces and a can of beans. Let simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes. Serve very hot.

Risotto Chicken Rice

Leftover rice and a little chicken? Fry a shallot in a little oil. Add your rice and wet with half a glass of milk. Add your chicken pieces. Let simmer for 5 minutes and sprinkle with a handful of grated cheese. Serve immediately.

Tomatoes stuffed with chicken and avocado

Mix the flesh of half an avocado with a few pieces of chicken cut into very small pieces. Sprinkle with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Core a tomato and top it with this mixture. Serve very chilled.
