Tasteful Tuesday: Chicken Leftovers

I am doing something a little different today for Tasty Tuesdays. At the beginning of the summer I revived a comment from a good friends mother. She follows Blissful and Domestic and had a cooking question. Well I always meant to reply, but her e-mail sat in my inbox, waiting for a reply, for obviously way too long. Today I decided to address her question and figured to do it here, since some of you may benefit as well. Here is what Grandma Suzzy asked:

"since you are such a good cook, I have a need maybe you have some insight to: we have a wood fired pizza oven hubby built for me...after pizzas, we usually prepare a few whole chickens to roast using the leftover oven heat. I often, though, lack many creative ways to utilize that roast chicken meat, other than to add bbq sauce for sandwiches and for enchiladas. If you have any more ideas...when you get a chance...I sure would love to hear them!"

So here is what I came up with. I decided to do some blog hopping research to find some awesome recipes,. which would be perfect with Grandma Suzzy's leftover chicken meat. 

The first blog I thought to check out was Chef in Training. I always find awesome recipes there. I went to her word cloud in her left column and clicked on "chicken". Here are some of the fabulousness I found.


You can use the same ingredients, but cook it on the stove, since your chicken is already cooked.


Just again add all ingredients to your precooked chicken


These look super yummy!


This one is great for using up rice and veggie leftovers too!


I also hopped on over to The Homespun Heart. This is a favorite blog of mine and all her stuff is yummy also.

I thought of Chicken Pot Pie. This is a great way to use leftover chicken.


Chicken Alfredo Pizza. I use this recipe and it is oh so yummy! 


and we can't forget Chicken Alfredo with pasta. Yum!


Here are some chicken recipes from Blissful and Domestic.

This one is super yummy in the winter with home made rolls


This recipe is for Taco Tortilla Soup.
you could make this one with chicken instead of beef.



and then because I can't resist anything by The Pioneer Woman
Here are somne links to some of her fabulous chicken recipes.
