Oriental style chicken noodle soup.
Chicken and mushrooms in white wine sauce served with rice or used to stuff pancakes.

Chicken and Mushroom pie - similar to leek one above, but I just use gravy and stick a lid on the chicken and mushroom mix.

Chicken noodle soup -use carcass to make stock and then use half stock half water to heat through chicken, sweet corn and noodles. Season to taste.

Oh and I cook it all together by shoving it in the oven until the pastry looks done.

Haha, not that much salt and pepper, I added those in later. Just roughly equal quantities of gravy and cream so that it isn't too sloppy.

Chicken and leek pie is what I'll be making tomorrow.

Fry leeks in butter until fairly soft. Mix with leftover chicken and around 50-100ml each of chicken gravy, salt, pepper and fresh cream. Stick in a dish and add a pastry lid. Most delicious, my family all lurve it. smile

Yes you can freeze it. Only reheat it once though - so don't cook a new dish then freeze then reheat again iyswim?

Chicken risotto
Chicken fried rice
Chicken pie
Chicken, mushroom and leek pasta
Warm chicken sandwich on posh bread

or serve with baked potatoes and coleslaw.

I do:
chicken and pea risotto
Chicken chow mein
baked chicken pasta (fry onion, pepper and bacon til cooked IN BUTTER, add a little flour, then chicken stock and white wine to make a sauce. Stir through chicken and cooked pasta. Put in oven proof dish, sprinkle with grated cheese, and cook til golden about 20 mins at 180)

If I was doing chicken pie, I'd fry leaks in butter, add chicken, then flour and make into a sauce with milk. I then cook the pastry seperatly in the oven, and just place crispy puff pastry on a serving of chicken base!

Cold chicken with jacket potatoes still has to be my favourite tho.

Have loads left from a big bird. What to make with it? Can I use it in any dishes I can then freeze (I cooked it today).

And any recipes for chicken pie please?
