  • This time of year I'd make chicken salad- add chopped onion, celery, relish, mayo. Or if you want to have something cooked, then mix it together with cream of chicken or mushroom soup, cooked pasta, some vegetables, part of an envelope of dried onion soup. You can also add milk or sour cream to this.

  • Something else I do with leftover chicken is make soup- I add some chicken broth and chopped up whatever is in the refrigerator or leftover vegetables that I've stored in the freezer, at least chopped onion, if it needs something else I add canned vegetables, rice, noodles, beans.

  • I do that quite often...I actually cook it in the crock pot - you get more meat than a deli chicken from the grocery store for less money! My kids are young so they are big fans of chicken quesadillas and fajitas ...but we love mexican food. You could also throw it in spaghetti sauce with some sauteed veggies over pasta...

  • Chicken salad (mayo, quartered red grapes, slivered almonds, chopped celery and whatever seasonings you like. Shredded or chop the chicken.)

  • Chicken salad, Chicken Tacos or Taquitos, Chickent pot pie, Chicken shakes with whipped cream, Chickensicles You mold them in the shape of popsicles and put a wooden stick in the middle and freeze them.

  • I make quesadillas, enchiladas, chilichangas, pulled chicken (shred and mix with bbq sauce in the crockpot - serve on sandwiches), soup, chicken tacos, chicken salad, etc.

    Good luck - we get tired of the same thing with leftovers, too! :)
