On The 3rd day of Christmas..
Christmas is about more than shopping, TV specials, and yes, Santa Claus. If we take time to enjoy our decorations and treats during the Christmas Season just maybe we'll find more of that Christmas spirit to keep in our hearts all year though.
December 27th: Day Three...Three French Hens...
I did get a hen, but it was not a French one, Then hungry I got. So I ended up cooking it in a great big pot. So today my gift to you is 3 ideas to use that leftover chicken.
It always feels great when we can make a meal go just as far as possible, and this is one of my favorite ways to stretch a whole chicken into three meals. In addition to saving on the budget, it also saves a lot of prep time in the kitchen and makes it easy to plan meals for the week – perfect for these busy days! In a pinch, you can buy a Rotisserie chicken from your favorite deli if you don’t have time to roast the chicken yourself.
Serve the roasted chicken on the first night, reserve a 1/2 cup of shredded chicken for chicken pizza or tacos on night two, and pick the bones clean then use all of the remaining chicken to make chicken noodle soup on the third night.
You know that at my house when I cook anything, I eat a lot of leftovers, but roast chicken has to be my favorite.
Hope your Tuesday is a TERRIFIC one!
