I made a chicken caserole and all the chicken got eaten. I ahve a pint jug left over full of the jus. It's delish and it's got onions, mushrooms and carrots in it.

I thuoght I'l keep that and use it, but now I'm wondering what to do with it?

Eat it as it is like soup?
Fry up some more chicken and bacon and use like stock?

Use it to make soup or freeze and keep as base for gravy ....

erm, its soup innit? add some bread and you have a meal.

Or, if you want to make it more substantial, cook some tiny pasta shapes in it, orzo, or troife, or macaroni. Or you could use it to cook cous-cous (drain of liquid, boil and add to cous cous, leave to swell then top with the solid bits

I thought of soup but it seems a bit rich.

Maybe I'll reduce it.....

Thanks smile

Roast some chicken thighs & potatoes, cook some veg and use jus as gravy. Instant roast dinner! Freeze jus if you don't want to have chicken again just yet.
