  • I usually cut mine up and make either soup, or chicken and broccoli Alfredo.

  • Hmm...you could make fajitas :D With green and red peppers and tortillas and salsa.

    Or if you're a soup person you could make your own kind of chicken noodle soup with egg noodles and fresh vegetables.

    Or a teriyaki chicken and rice stir-fry.

    I love having leftover chicken, it's so versatile and you can add it to pretty much anything.

  • My first choice would be flautas...shred the chicken and season with onion salt, chicken base, and white pepper. You can add minced onion or green chilis if you want. Roll in flour tortillas, then fry until deep golden brown and crispy. Serve with guac, sour cream, salsa. Yummy!
    Also: fried rice! Chop the chicken into small pieces. Chop green onions, and whatever else you want to add, like carrots or water chestnuts, etc. Lightly beat an egg. Your rice should ideally be cooked the day before, but it doesn't have to be. Heat some sesame oil in a pan. Add the chicken, veggies, and rice. Stir fry for a couple minutes, then move mostly to one side and add the egg. Stir the egg quickly, then mix it all together. Add some soy sauce, and voila`! You can also add a bit of butter and garlic salt for a different kick.
