Left over fried chicken??

 I always buy the bulk chicken legs because theyre cheaper. I fry them for dinner and we have leftovers, well my family isn't a big fan of too many things heated up the next day (fried chicken being one of them) and I usually end up wasting the leftover. Any ideas on what I could do with the meat to make something else?

Sorry about that.
Chicken and dumplings:
1 1/2 cup flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1/4 cup milk

Combine ingredients in a small bowl. Have your chicken and broth boiling and drop in dough balls (your choice in size) and then cover. Do not remove cover for at least 20 minutes or the dumplings will not cook through.

Noodles:
2 1/2 cups flour
A pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup milk

Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix together until dough becomes thick. Roll dough on a floured surface untilyou get your desire thicthickness. Cut to you desired length and allow to rest for 15-20 minutes. Add noodles to your boiling chicken and water (I add a cube of chicken bouillon while it's boiling). You don't add all the noodles at once but a handful at a time and don't stir but swish around. Allow to boil for about 20 to 30 minutes.

Oh...the chicken things I made a few nights ago. Add chicken, cooked rice, cheese, salsa, tomatoes, black olives into tortillas and place in a baking dish and top with cheese and salsa. Bake at 350 * until cheese has melted. Serve with sour cream if desired.

Lol!
You can also make chicken roll ups the same way just add lettuce and don't bake.
