Two Easy Recipes for Chicken Leftovers

This week, we’ve shown you two easy ways to cook a whole chicken. If you didn’t eat that whole chicken in one night, you probably have some leftovers and need some ideas to spice them up. Here are two easy dishes, based on what we like to do with our own leftovers at home. The first is a simple curried chicken salad that won over the “no-grapes-in-my-chicken-salad-please” crowd with it’s fresh, vibrant flavors and unique Indian twist. The second is a sandwich my dad used to make with chicken and turkey leftovers. It’s very basic, but surprisingly delicious.

Leftovers Chicken Sandwich

To make the leftover chicken sandwich, use two pieces of bread, your leftover cooked chicken or turkey, lettuce, mayonnaise and salt and pepper. Toasting the bread is optional, but adds a nice texture to the sandwich. Spread both pieces of bread with mayo and add the lettuce. Top with your leftover chicken (or turkey) and add salt and pepper to taste. Close the sandwich, lift to mouth, bite and enjoy!
