Take Two meal: Cheesy Chicken

Cheesy Chicken uses the leftovers from Crock Pot Parmesan Chicken, an amazingly simple meal created by chef-in-training, and found on her blog (just follow the link).  That's also her picture up there, because the one I took today looked terrible!  I'll replace it with my own the next time we have this dish

The leftovers from Crock Pot Parm can be used to make chicken spaghetti - especially if you have lots of leftover noodles - or to make Cheesy Chicken sandwiches, which are terrific served with sweet potato fries.


Take your leftovers from the Crock Pot Parmesan Chicken an put them in a sauce pan.  Turn the heat on medium to med-low.  Stir constantly, breaking up the chicken as it cooks.  When the chicken is warmed and thoroughly shredded, add a big handful of cheese (I use cheddar, usually, but it should work with whatever you have in your fridge).  Turn the heat to medium high and stir while the concoction comes up to temperature and the cheese melts.  Add another handful of cheese if you like it really cheesy.  Keep on stirring till all the cheese is melted through.  Add any extras you want.  We like sliced olives - sometimes black, sometimes green.  You may want to add something else to suit your own family.

Serve over noodles for Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti, or on rolls for Cheesy Chicken sandwiches.  Enjoy!
