I made chicken broth yesterday, and home made pot noodle today, with our left over chook.

That's my repertoire exhausted

got enough for something like chicken wraps with rice?

if the chicken's decent enough (ie not just stuff that's only good for stews) a good salad - with red pepper, avocado, mushrooms, bacon, crutons, and a really good dressing. or a chicken and ham pie - stock, white sauce, bought pastry, easy. or a curry with sweet potatoes

chicken pie, chicken, mushrooms, any nice veg you might have, wine and chicken stock or water that has had porcini mushrooms soaked in it if you are watching salt intake, maybe some bacon or pancetta. With a puff pastry lid. yummy.

Chicken pie:

Make a roux with butter, a chicken stock cube, and flour. Make a sauce by adding milk. Add the cooked chickenn and some frozen peas and/or corn.

Put in a pie dish and top with ready made puff pastry.

Put in the oven for half an hour.

In a salad with leaves, walnutsand pomegranate seeds.
Or mix 1/2 and 1/2 plain youghurt and good mayo. Add squeeze of lemon, sultanas, flaked almonds and tablespoon of curry paste and fold in shredded chicken.

Cold chicken butties - with mayo & stuffing. Excellent fodder to watch the 10 O'Clock news with smile

chicken noodle soup. cook up stock pop and pop in noodles, sweetcorn and shredded leftover chicken. yummy

Mix up with crispy bacon and avocado for a lovely sandwich filling or toast topper.

Coronation chicken - make the sauce from mayonaise with curry paste and apricot jam to taste. Some rice salad and other salads to go with it.

I often use the very last pickings off the carcas as part of a pizza topping.

Another vote for chicken soup, add a couple of sliced potatoes, handful of pasta etc to chicken broth, cook, add chopped up chicken.

Or stir fry a pepper, an onion, add sliced cooked chicken and handful of cashew nuts, add cooked noodles and some soy sauce and sesame oil, snip in a couple of spring onions...

How about chicken fried rice? Chop the remains of chicken into small chunks (you can use every last scrap) and also save a dollop of gravy (if you made any). Pre-cook some rice, drain and set aside. Beat one egg, set aside.
Slice an onion and stir-fry in a large frying pan or wok. Add the chicken chunks and keep pan moving. Add rice, and create 3 small wells into which pour the beaten egg. Leave for 1 minute, then stir the egg through. If you have kept some gravy, add a dollop of this at this stage. Add some soy sauce, salt and pepper and serve with green salad. Delish!

Mix cold chicken with green beans and lots of tapenade. (This is a Hugh F-W recipe. He makes his own tapenade, I don't)

Great on its own or with new pots & salad leaves.

stirlingmum Sun 17-Aug-08 22:12:27

I do chicken fried rice (as monkeymargot said) or Biryani, throwing cooked chicken and sliced green beans in for the last 5 minutes or so.

Or Chorizo & chicken rice - a bit like biryani, without the curry flavour.

Let me know if more info needed smile

DillyTanty Sun 17-Aug-08 22:15:26

two slices white bread, butter, oak leaf lettuce and a splash of balsamic. maybe some tomato if you're feeling racy.

there is NOTHING better than a white bread and chook sandwich. grin (apart from maybe moony's salad.

MissisBoot Fri 22-Aug-08 20:49:10

I often do sweet and sour chicken.

southeastastra Fri 22-Aug-08 21:07:45

how big are these chickens? i never have leftovers from my ones

mylittlemonsters Fri 22-Aug-08 21:11:53

I do chicken pie - the easy way - people ask for the recipe it is that good - but so blindigly easy!

Whatever veg you want e.g. leeks, mushrooms, carrots etc
Cream of Chicken soup (yes I did say chicken soup) Any brand or tin, although have to say Duchy Chicken soup is really good.
Jus Rol all butter shortcrust pastry.

Cook veg as you would normally and add the chicken and soup.

Roll out the base and top and then put your pie together - cook at 180 degrees C for about 35 mins
