A fricasee? Make a white sauce using butter, flour and stock (a stock cube in water is fine). Don't make it too runny, it needs to be quite thick. Then chuck in the chicken and any veg you feel like using (chuck it straight in if it's frozen or leftover, otherwise you'll need to cook it a bit first).

I serve it with rice usually.

Or do the same and make it into a pie.

Or, put into a bowl, add mashed potatoes to the top and cook in the over.

This always goes down well in my house, and uses up any leftover veg too.

YY to noodle soup, and also chicken mornay, bake it in a cheese sauce and top it with grated Parmesan and crushed ready salted crisps.

Sweet Chilli chicken and wraps. Same basis as chilli con carne but tastes completely different.

Fry an onion, add a can of chopped tomatoes and a red chilli, crushed garlic if you like, salt and pepper and chilli powder to taste, simmer until the tomatoes and onion have become sauce not chunks, add about a desert spoon of sugar or as much as you like for the sweetness of your choice. Add in any kidney or other beans and chuck in the chicken right at the end to warm through.

Serve with wraps, sour cream, sweetcorn, whatever.

Note - this isn't supposed to be a runny sauce, more a coating but if it looks like it's getting too thick just add a spoonful of water.

Lovely with pasta nad tomato sauce and brocoli. Not such a fiddle as it sounds and you can freeze them to cook at a later date. I made a heap with leftover turkey and ham at xmas
