Have you ever made “beer can” chicken in our chicken bakers and wondered what you could make with the leftovers? Well, we have an answer for you. This article will provide you with a few recipes on what you can cook with your leftover chicken that are great for packing for lunch or reheating for dinner.
This article has the best of both worlds. It provides a chicken recipe to bake in your Clay Coyote chicken bakers, and then provides four leftover recipes to try! Those four are chicken tacos, creamy chicken alfredo, chicken stir fry, and a chopped southwest chicken salad. Yum!
This is one of my recent favorite dishes: chicken salad sandwiches. With the leftover chicken, you can create an easy dish that will give you lunch for a few days. You can eat it on a croissant or sandwich bread, over a lettuce mix, or eat it straight out of the container.
Need to spice up the good old mac and cheese recipe? Add in some of your leftover chicken! Shred up the chicken, pop in the microwave for about a minute to heat up, and stir in with your mac and cheese. This also works well with other pasta dishes like chicken alfredo, pasta salad, or pasta with some olive oil and mixed vegetables.
If you are a fan of Mexican food, you can use your leftover chicken to make tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas. You save time by already having the meat cooked, so these are great recipes when you are in a time crunch.
