Fry some onions and add a bit of tomato puree, the add small amount of sundried tomatoes for a minute. Stir in chicken and add some cream and heat through. Have on pasta with parmesan cheese. If you have some mushrooms you could throw those in as well.

Alternatively, toss the chicken with mixed leaves and mango and dress with a slightly sweetish dressing (balsamic and honey is nice) and have with baked potatoe or chips.

Oooh. I've seen that soup and thought it looked good. Glad to hear it has a thumbs up.

I'm doing this with mine tomorrow. I usually add some extra veggies (mange tout, peppers, more mushrooms than the recipe states) soooo gorgeous and fresh and sooo easy and although it has soup in the name its more like a wet stir fry. LOADS of noodles would def. fill up the DH!

I'm afraid I just love cold chicken on its own with a green salad and some coleslaw. Or in a sandwich. Or I chuck it into a pasta sauce for a quick tea for the DCs.

StickEmUp Sun 10-Feb-13 21:50:36

Thanks! I can eat it then ... Phew. Would hate to waste it.
Soup .. It doesn't fill DH up enough so as an evening meal doesn't work. Weekend lunch, fine. Maybe there'll be some left to freeze.

Yes now you've cooked it it will be ok in the fridge. If you can bear to fill a pan with water, doing in the picked carcass, an onion chopped in half, ditto carrot, peppercorns and bayleaf and let simmer for a couple of hours, strain and bung in root veg, cook till soft then blend and there you go. Heavenly soup for lunch all week.

Sorry you did say no soup, I'm a soup pusher.. smile

Make a nice creamy white sauce with wine if you have it, add chopped up chicken and some veg, mushrooms are good for this, or peas sweetcorn leeks onions broccoli spinach, whatever is in the fridge really. Use mixture to fill pancakes, roll them up, place in a covered dish to warm through in oven. You can add some grated cheese over the top if you like.

Even more simple, make a lot of gravy with the roast, then heat sliced meat up in a saucepan with the left over gravy, make sure it bubbles well, serve with mash and a different selection of veg from the roast dinner, children will love it, and it is quick and easy.

I'm doing chicken and prawn laksa with mine- google a recipe but if you have coconut milk and noodles you only need Thai spices and bean sprouts - its very easy smile

Startail Sun 10-Feb-13 21:05:09

onion, tin of coconut milk and as much green Thai curry paste as you like for heat and flavor. (1/2 a jar of Asda here), they vary massively. Add fresh green chilli's for adlts who aren't wimps like me.

Pasta with pesto. Cut chicken up and add loads of pesto sauce. Simple and yummy

StickEmUp Sun 10-Feb-13 20:56:48

And doing the de boning tomorrow and not today will be okay!
Say I'm lazy and only pull enough off for risotto tomorrow, can i take more off and eat tuesday too?
Ive asked so many chicken questions on here i must seem like a dimwit!

chicken lasagne, chicken foo yung.

Pie. Gordon Ramsay has a lush and very easy recipe - basically sautee some veg (he uses autumn veg like butternut squash but it could be anything) add stock, seasoning and creme fraiche, reduce it a bit. Cut circles out of ready rolled puff pastry and put them in the oven. Add chicken to veg to heat up while pastry is cooking, open oven door for last couple of minutes so the pastry crisps up. Put chicken and veg on plate, pastry circle on top. Bish bash bosh. It's delicious, did it with leftover Christmas turkey too.

I just realised seeing more replies i am so unimaginative!
To be frank, I've only just started cooking proper food!

Lepreporn Sun 10-Feb-13 20:52:32
