Leftover Chicken Recipes are a must for any home cook. Chicken is so versatile and perfect for whipping up amazing meals!
I'm a sucker for leftover chicken recipes. We eat a ton of chicken in our household so I'm always coming up with leftover ideas.
What I love about chicken is how versatile it is. Honestly, the possibilities for it are endless.
For example, you can make roast chicken one day then use the leftovers to whip up chicken fajitas the next day.
After that, you can actually use any leftover chicken fajitas and make a chicken fajita pasta with it. The possibilities are endless.
Another thing I really dig is how easy chicken is to cook. Not only that but it's so easy to double batch most recipes.
In all honesty, more often than not I'll purposely make a giant batch of any chicken recipe just so I can freeze leftovers for another day.
Leftover chicken recipes are also fabulous for meal planning and prep. You can make a ton and pop them in the fridge to eat all week, or you can freeze them.
I love to roast chicken a couple of times a month. Typically, when I make roast chicken I'll make two chickens at once so I have TONS of leftovers.
Then, I have dinner for days and can whip up leftover chicken recipes all week long. You can't beat chicken for stretching out into lots of meals.
You can also make so many amazing recipes with the leftover chicken. Everything from sandwiches, to pizza, to enchiladas and everything in between. One of my favourites is pot pie.

This round-up is making my mouth water! I love having cooked up chicken on hand for salads and easy protein throughout the week (and don't even get me started on barbecue chicken pizza!!). Thanks for hosting the giveaway -- of course I want to win, but it also introduced me to a bunch of awesome bloggers!
An amazingly cheesy chicken lasagna that kicks ass! It is also perfect to take to a neighbor or friend. This is stuff-the-refrigerator food!!!
