I have some left over roast chicken, courgettes and asparagus (plus most store cuboard basics). Normally quite creative but its been a long day and all out of ideas, any suggestion?

griddle/char grill the courgettes (diagonal slices) and the asparagus. Do the chicken cold.

I'd do some fruity/spicy couscous with it.

Or rice.

Or pasta with a creamy sauce poured over it all.

do it as a rissoto - but I would either griddle or grate the courgette.

If you want to use up the mozzerella you cuold oven bake the rissoto and put the moz on top.

Make a chicken risotto and throw the veg in at end?

make a nasi goreng type thing with basmati rice fried with a litle curry powder, chopped onion and the chicken. Add the veg on top at end.

pasta with a tomato base sauce with the veg and the chicken.

mmmm . I'll be there about 7pm ok ? wink

from the op i was going to suggest risotto. roast courgettes/asparagus in hot oven (you have any parmesan or v strong cheddar?) then stir them through at the end. peas always good in risotto too.
