Leftover Chicken Recipes, Hints & Videos

With today's busy schedules sometimes you feel completely overwhelmed with what to make for dinner. That's where leftovers come in. Chicken is an especially great leftover ingredient as you can cook a large amount at one time and then refrigerate or freeze it until you need it for another dish. It is also more economical to make your own chicken than it is to buy the canned or frozen cubes and chunks.

Leftover chicken is great in casseroles, pot pies, tacos, chicken salad and more. Plus the final product is packed with vitamins and minerals and easy to make as the main ingredient is right at hand.
