you may recall that i made pulled barbecue chicken last saturday for marshall’s birthday party.
to do this, i put 6 pounds of chicken breasts in my slow cooker with two packets of pulled pork BBQ seasoning (yes, it works for chicken!) along with the items the packet calls for: tomato sauce, apple cider vinegar and brown sugar.
eight hours later, i had a whole lot of BBQ chicken on my hands! most of it was devoured at the party, but i was left with a tupperware full of leftover chicken.
to some, this large amount of leftovers might seem like a curse. to me? a blessing. lots of people claim that they hate leftovers because they get bored with eating the same thing all week.
well, i am here to prove those people wrong.
you know how i didn’t show you any of my lunches last week? well, i am about to make up for it.
open-faced BBQ chicken sandwich with swiss cheese melted over the top.
the spicy sweet mustard had a kick! note to self: eat this mustard next time my sinuses are stuffed up.
BBQ chicken burrito. chicken, black beans, spinach, guacamole & salsa all wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla.
yes, BBQ chicken works in mexican food.
thursday’s lunch was leftover greek salad—so we will skip that one.. but note: it was leftovers. like i said, i am a leftover lover!
this was a fun spin on my cottage cheese+garbanzo mix that i always eat.
and you thought leftovers were boring!
i have to say, i was a little sad when the BBQ chicken was gone. maybe it’s time to make another batch…
1. do you like leftovers? do you eat them in their original state or do you re-create them into new meals?
2. quick, pick one! sandwich, salad, burrito or pizza?
