Leftovers – Use Your Roast Chicken

On my meal plan page I plan a roast dinner once a week. In England we love to have a roast dinner on Sunday, but it’s not always the case as often I like to do a slow cooked joint of meat in my ‘crock pot’ midweek. One reason I like to have a roast each week is the cost; I use the leftovers in lots of different meals during the week and so from one purchase I have many meals. When I cook a roast chicken I am usually able to make another meal, a round of sandwiches and a litre of stock. Here I give you 10 ways to use your leftover chicken, but as a guide I use my leftovers within three days or I freeze them to be cooked hot again another day – remember to make sure all reheated food has been cooked piping for several minutes before serving. You may find this link helpful for advice on reheating food
