Leftover Chicken Recipes

A great way to use leftover chicken from a roast or barbecue is to add it to a spinach and Pesto salad. Preparation time is about 20 minutes . Spinach is so good for you, and goes wonderfully well with chicken. Take about a pound of well-washed spinach leaves. Add to a bowl containing as much cold cooked and shredded chicken meat as you have available.

Add a pound of cooked cold pasta shapes and a couple of handfuls of cherry tomatoes.

For extra flavour add a small jar of chopped sun-dried tomatoes too.

Add between 2 and 5 tablespoons of Pesto (an italian sauce of garlic, basil, pine nuts and olive oil)

Toss the ingredients together and dish up. Sprinkle with a few toasted pine nuts and serve.
