Leftover Chicken Recipe Roundup


The other day, one of my favorite commenters  suggested that I post a roundup of leftover chicken recipes; actually at this point I would probably call ~M (that’s the handle she uses when commenting on my site)  a “contributor.”

I quickly took to ~M’s idea since this time of year so many of us are suffering from post holiday cooking fatigue.  If you have leftover chicken or turkey from the holidays or if you want to throw a bird in the oven, you can make any of these dishes in mere minutes.

I hope you enjoy these quick and easy gluten free recipes and that they save you a lot of time in the kitchen!

I’ve been making a few adjustments to elanaspantry.com of late.  For starters I’ve placed a “Need Help?” section on the side bar with links to my FAQs and Forums, two resources that will assist with any recipe/substitution/product questions you might have. There’s an amazingly helpful and informative community over at the forums and I highly recommend a visit over there to meet all the lovely folks.

In continued book tour news, you can listen to the radio interview I did with Dr. DeSilva on the Ask Dr. DeSilva program at HealthRadio.net.

In the Friday Freebie giveaway department, Heather is the winner of the fabulous book Make It Fast, Cook It Slow by the awesome Stephanie O’Dea.

    Thank you –this is perfect for my gluten free family of 4!Thanks for all your hard work i look at your site all the time!

    Awww, thanks! This is so helpful and sweet of you! We used diced leftover chipotle chicken in our chicken vegetable soup this weekend. The chicken is always great, but it was especially great leftover in this context since it cooled down the boiling soup (I didn’t reheat the chicken). Also, the chipotle-orange-agave flavor/gravy gave the soup a great flavor boost! Happy 2010!

    Very timely post, as i think we are all exhausted from the end-of-year culinary efforts. I missed your cob salad post the first time around and am intrigued by your dairy-free ranch dressing. I think this will be my “day 2″ (post roasting) chicken recipe.

  5. Great ideas! I am most interested in the Thai Chicken Soup. Will have to try it out soon.

    The Thai Wraps look great! I like the idea of the lettuce leaf instead of rice paper (can’t eat that). I’ll be having that and a Cobb Salad this week!

  7. I got your cookbook for Christmas and I love it! We’ll be eating your Fish Sticks for dinner tonight…

    Hey… I was wondering if you have ever tried a tortilla recipe… We use them ALL the time and I just found out I am gluten intolerant. I tried googling for a recipe, but can’t find too much… hope to hear from you:-)

  9. I’m always looking for new chicken recipes! Thanks!
