leftover chicken

Anyone have an idea of what I can do with a bowl of leftover chicken? Especially lunch ideas. Thanks, Stephanie

I posted this awhile ago in response to someone who was searching for ideas for store bought rotisserie chicken, but I would make the same suggestions here (did a search and dug this out of oblivion). Hope it helps, it's a pretty comprehensive list:

A couple of ideas...
- slice or cube and have over a salad - add shredded jack cheese, sour cream and salsa and voila - mexican
- slice, sautee up some onions and bell peppers and... fajitas
- cube and mix with a sauce of heavy cream, chicken stock, veggies, put in an oven proof crock and top with mock mashed potatoes (i.e. cauliflower - recipes on this board), broil or bake until crispy on top - sort of like a pot pie
- slice and top with marinara/tomato sauce and mozzarella - broil or bake until melted for chicken parmagiana
- slice and top with alfredo sauce and some parmesan cheese... chicken alfredo
- slice and sautee with a touch of butter, lemon juice and white wine...chicken piccata
- slice and sautee up a sauce of stewed tomatoes, sliced onion, mushroom, zucchini, and red wine (optional)... chicken cacciatore
- slice and sautee some sliced mushrooms, marinated artichokes, black olives and lemon juice... mediterranean chicken
- slice and top with creamed spinach (lots of recipes on here... I make mine with frozen spinach drained, heavy cream and shaved parmesan cheese - the real kind not the grated kind)... chicken florentine
- slice and top with ham and swiss (melted)... chicken cordon bleu
- cube and mix with broccoli and cheese sauce (try Ragu cheese sauce in a glass jar for convenience or make your own)... chicken and broccoli casserole
- shred and mix with a low carb barbeque sauce (there are recipes on this board or you can buy online or at a store)... pulled chicken barbeque
- slice and wrap in big lettuce leaves with bacon tomato and mayo... chicken club

Here is my "emergency" dinner:

1 C cooked chicken
1 Tbsp cream cheese, softened
1 tsp taco seasoning

Mix all together and top with 1/3-1/2 C colby jack cheese and microwave until cheese melts...or I like to stick mine in the oven to get the cheese brown and crispy.

Use low carb tortillas and make chicken quesadillas or burritos.

Shred it and add Bruce's BBQ sauce! Cook a while longer to let the flavors meld.
