Got leftover roast chicken, but don't have time to make chicken enchiladas? Then throw together this scrumptious chicken sandwich. Layers of succulent chicken meat, mashed avocado, and melted cheese combine to make a simple but satisfying sandwich. The secret ingredient is a quick homemade Russian dressing; it provides a rich creaminess that ensures the sandwich isn't too dry. Although the recipe calls for whole-wheat bread, feel free to use whatever bread you have on hand, just be sure it's toasted! Learn the uncomplicated method after the jump.
So you've made roast chicken and now have a bunch of leftovers. Instead of simply putting together chicken salad, why not use the extra meat to create an entirely new dinner? Follow this scrumptious enchilada recipe. It's from Tyler Florence, and over 422 people have enjoyed it (myself included!). It tosses shredded cooked chicken with a quick and flavorful roasted tomatillo chile salsa. Unlike some enchiladas which are super heavy, the chunky green sauce is light and slightly spicy. The resulting dish is satisfying, but not overly so. Learn the technique now.
Recently I had a fun idea: I would make roast chicken, come up with two different ways of using the leftover meat, and share the whole thing with you! Since stuffing is an Autumnal favorite, I selected this recipe for roasted chicken halves with sage stuffing. It's seasoned with fresh sage and paprika and cooked on a bed of homemade croutons, celery, onion, and garlic. The finished dish is insanely scrumptious! The chicken meat was moist and flavorful, and the skin was crispy and addictive. The rich and caramelized stuffing sucks up all the chicken's juices while cooking. If you like roast chicken, you must make this dish. Check back tomorrow and Friday to find out what I do with the leftovers, and to see this recipe, read more.
