What to do with leftover chicken from broth

by ali

Simple Ideas…

Once you have strained the broth from the chicken onions and garlic, you will have a nice bowl of cooked chicken bits and pieces leftover that are basically a blank palette flavor wise that you can cook with in many different recipes.

Straining the Broth

I hate to throw ANYTHING away that I think can be used, so what I do is let the chicken bits and pieces cool off in the bowl for 1/2 hour or so, then I go through it and pick out all the edible meaty chicken pieces and use them in other recipes.

Some of my favorite recipes that are well adapted to shredded and cooked chicken:

Chicken, Poblano and Goat Cheese Tamales

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken and Leek Soup

Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas with Mojo de ajo

Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken “carnitas” Tacos (fry up the chicken with onions in chicken fat or lard)

Chicken Tarragon Salad with cranberries for Sandwiches

Chinese Chicken Salad

Waste Not Want Not!
