Leftover Chicken Recipe Ideas

Southwest Chicken Casserole

This recipe can use the shredded chicken leftover from your chicken and veggie soup but it can also use chicken leftover from a chicken roast, chicken rotisserie or steamed chicken meal as well.  Casseroles are another quick and easy recipe with minimal prep and clean up making them perfect for weeknight meals as well.

Chicken Pot Pie

Another recipe that can use the shredded chicken leftover from your chicken and veggie soup as well as the chicken stock is homemade chicken pot pie!  Plus you can use as much or little chicken that you have or change up the vegetables too.  This can be a freezer meal too so you can plan to make it but freeze it for another night.  I like to keep my freezer stocked with make ahead meals for nights I don’t have time to cook or just don’t feel like it.
