Reinventing Roast Chicken Leftovers

I decided to cook a stuffed roast chicken recently as the weather was perfectly overcast and suited to a roast. There was a fair amount of the chicken left over, I decided to reinvent it. As I have mentioned before, I am very much a waste not, want not kind of girl…

Jude and I are both complete pasta fanatics, so needless to say, ANY night is a good night for pasta… and what I love about my son is that he likes it as simple as I do. I decided to sautee some diced bell peppers with some baby spinach.

Something I discovered recently, is that slightly wilted spinach is actually a lot better for you than fresh spinach – and the same goes for tomatoes, apparently… I am derailing haha… ok so yes, I sautéed the peppers and the spinach and then tossed in a little bit of the chicken which I just roughly shredded.

Tossed that around for a few minutes and then served it with the egg noodles and a nice generous dollop of olive oil. It was “simply delicious” – and as a bonus, there is still just enough chicken left over to rustle up a few chicken mayo sandwiches for my little man. One roast chicken… many meals ;)

❤❤❤

Until next time...
Much Love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx

Roast chicken is a definite go to whenever life get tough and the tough gets going. Although with exorbitant meat prices in Mauritius one can get a bit tired of chicken.. 😂 We make all sorts of plans with it. Thanks for sharing this. 😊

Oh yes I feel you! I get a bit tired of ALL meats actually HAHA - I think that is a mom problem though, and having to decide what to cook everyday haha :D

As a veggie I'll have a serving of the wilted spinach, please!

hehe I often do that too. Pasta, wilted spinach, a diced avocado and some chipotle sauce... YUM!

Are leftovers an absolute must in your home too?!? The reuse of food is obviously great for the planet but a special mom makes it nutritious and delicious.

Well done boss!

I suppose it is more habit than anything else lol - I come from a big family so cooking large is my default haha! But yes, we generally do have left overs and they ALWAYS get consumed! whether being thrown into scrambled egg, or added on toast - whatever.... they get used. No space for spoilt fussy people in my house ;)

It's funny, but I woke up thinking about chicken bones and cooking them up to munch with my teeth all the way down into my belly

Well done. Resteemed :-)
