Fun Leftover Ideas for Chicken

Posted on September 13th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

 

Do you ever get in a rut with your cooking/meal planning? I do. Then, when I look at cooking magazines and websites, I realize that it’s actually so easy to make lots of creative and exotic meals…as long as I spend a lot more money. Chicken is a staple in our home. But, it is very easy to get stuck in a chicken rut. Here are a couple of ideas to change things up while saving money.

Chicken Tacos/Burritos

We love taking our leftover chicken and turning them into a fiesta umbrella online sale meal. It’s so easy to simply shred leftover chicken with a little bit of broth or water and your favorite Mexican seasonings to serve in a tortilla alongside some cheese, sour cream, guacamole, maybe some beans and a little homemade pico de gallo! It’s one of our family’s favorite meals…but, save the chicken fat and bits in the bottom of the pan to make a yummy sauce. And, make lots of it.

Last night I used the chicken bits at the bottom of the pan to make a little chili powder based sauce for our tacos. When the pan was hot, I added a little bit of water. When it began to boil, I sprinkled less than 1/4 cup flour to thicken it. From there, I added more finely chopped onions, water, chili
