About: I can knit, crochet, sew, weave, cook, bake, decorate, paint, draw, and more! My kids crafts include finger puppets, pop-up cards, stuffed animals, book-making, and game boards, with lots of glitter glue! ...
I usually have a lot of leftovers after Thanksgiving, Christmas, or anytime I visit my parents. Recently, I was given the gift of a bag or two of barbecued chicken breasts. About 6 of them. What do I do with so much leftover chicken??

I can do a lot with leftover chicken. Chicken Stir Fry. Chicken Fried Rice. Fried Chicken Quesadillas. Chicken Salad. And I did make them all in the last week or so.

This is #1: Chicken Stir Fry.

Chop up the Chicken! i took one of the Chicken Breasts and sliced that baby up! thin slices are best, since a Stir-fry is made of many different things. Here's a list of the usual suspects that I try to dig out of my fridge for the occasion:
  • Bell Peppers (I love the red ones best!)
  • Onion (don't need a whole lot, so one onion can last me several meals!)
  • Corn (If sweetness is what I desire)
  • Broccoli
  • Mixed Veggies (usually in my freezer because I was in a healthy mood.)
  • You could add mushrooms. Sure. But I hate mushrooms.
Basically, you get the picture. Any veggies you want to toss in with your chicken, go for it. I throw everything, chopped, onto my frying pan. Add a little soy sauce or teriyaki sauce, or both, some pepper, some seasoning spices, and just heat it all up. The veggies will steam, the chicken gets reheated, and all you really have to do is make sure it doesn't get burned for five minutes. Stir it up! That's why it's called stir-fry. I think.
