Sounds good to me Jane, I love anything that includes chicken stock.

I'll try that again!

It was good, but probably needs a some herb or spice to provide little more flavour to avoid having to add lots of cheese!

How about Hot Smoked Paprika, that adds a lovely depth to food.

I'll try that again!

Another great meal with very little cooked / leftover chicken is a risotto with the chicken added at the very end just to warm it through. A small bit of bell or romano pepper and some soft fried onion all add up to a really gorgeous meal. Our Sunday roast chicken (just two two of us) usually makes three meals - one with baked (jacket) potatoes and green beans or frozen peas and the third being the risotto. Having read Jane's recipe for the carcass, I think we will manage four next week.

Fiona is an absolute dinger at pulling around dishes with a few additional dashes of this or that. I will put her to the test!

Never knowingly underfed

You talking about Romano Peppers has reminded me that I have a jar of flame roasted peppers on my shelf and I'm due to make some soup tomorrow on account of it going to be cold and frosty.  I shall add some of them to the stock and veggies, that should warm me up.  If I remember I'll ask the butcher for some suet to make dumplings too.i_am_hungry

I'll try that again!

Hugh F W made almost the same meal as I posted on here, on his 'everyday: meat' programme last night. Didn't smother it in cheese though! And used slightly different veg.

(So in return I am making his leftover bolognese mousaka recipe tonight)

Let us know if you try it Danny, and if so what you add to liven it up a bit.

A couple sprigs of fresh thyme or rosemary? But only add them at the last half-hour when slow cooking, or the flavor goes off or just disappears somehow.If using dry you can throw it in at the beginning. i_am_hungry
