    I haven't tried this with chicken yet, but when I had lots of turkey left over I cut it in small strips and sauteed it in butter and a little stock (or gravy). It was amazing.

    Turkey Sandwich on rye.... kiddin'!

    I'll cook up some bacon and then put brussle sprouts in with the bacon and grease with a little chicken broth to soften the sprouts. Then add the left over chicken. Really good!

    When I roast a chicken, the thighs, drumsticks and other delicious bits disapear, leaving me with two breasts and some other random hunks of meat. I usually make chicken salad (regular with sliced green grapes, or curried with bits of dried apricot) and then stock with the bones. Leftover chicken is also great in frittatas or other egg dishes.

    My new favorite is tortilla soup - pick off the meat, make stock with the bones, tons of carrots, celery (stalk and leaves), tomatoes, cumin, garlic, onion, cilantro, lime, additional stock from previous birds if necessary, etc. My husband fries up corn tortilla strips for him and the kids and they eat theirs over rice. I just add avocado and extra lime to mine.

    I also like stir-frying left over poultry with broccoli slaw, tamari, lime, ginger, garlic, etc.

    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didnít understand the assignment.

    Shred it up and throw it in with egg scrambles, or on a salad

    I've made this salad twice in the past week or so: Warm Spinach and Sweet Potato Salad | Everyday Paleo It's really freaking good, and a good way to use leftover chicken.

    Mixed with pesto, added to tomato & leafy salad. Avocado doesn't hurt this either.

    Also, I always make stock from the bones, and having some chopped cooked meat to mix in makes for quick soup.

    Any fowl or pork I have left over almost invariably gets chopped up and doused with my Carolina BBQ sauce (a cup of apple cider vinegar and 6 tbsp flaked red pepper will do a whole chicken) and seared in a pan (then eaten and/or frozen for later use).

    That said, chicken seared in coconut oil and served next to butter-scrambled eggs is bloody awesome as well.

    I love chicken salad that has curry powder in it, along with some bits of fruit (grape halves, or bits of apple or pear) and some walnuts.

    I also love chicken tortilla soup, as another poster has mentioned. Pioneer Woman Cooks has a good recipe, and beans are easily omitted.
