Over 20 Dinner Recipes using Leftover Chicken
I have a lot of people asking me about meals that focus on using up leftovers, which is something that I try to focus on.
For one, it’s budget friendly. As much as possible, I try to buy and cook in bulk so that we can make the best use of the food we bought.
Two, it can make dinner prep much faster on busy week nights because using leftover meat is a shortcut … and I LOVE shortcuts!
Therefore, I thought it was time for a round up focused on leftovers and decided to start with chicken since it’s the primary meat that I use in recipes.
I like to make a big batch of chicken in my slow cooker and then use it in difference recipes. All the recipes below can easily use leftover shredded or cubed meat!
