When I roast a chicken I like to do a big one.  On the weekend my chicken weighed just over 9 pounds.  My dad saw it thawing on the counter and thought we were having turkey  🙂  I don’t see the point of all that mess if I can’t get more than one meal from it.  Now what to do with all that leftover chicken! First night we just reheat everything so it’s like roast chicken but then what? Make this leftover dish.

Leftover Chicken Casserole

Grease an 8 inch Pyrex baking pan, or the size to suit your family.

In a bowl cut up chicken into bite sized pieces, you’ll need enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Crumble in any dressing if you have it too. Pour in enough gravy to make it rather moist. Pour into prepared pan. Next layer in any leftover vegetables, or frozen. Then re-mash leftover potatoes with plenty of milk and butter. Spread this over the mixture in the pan.

Bake 350F for about 45 minutes. Add a salad and your done.

Lendenbraten

beef roast, any size
one envelope onion soup mix
water (an inch or so up roast)

Put everything in your roasting pan, cover, and roast 300F for 30 minutes/pound.  Remove roast to cutting board and put pan on stove top, adding more water if needed for volume of gravy.  Mix 2 T cornstarch into 1 cup sour cream.  Carefully stir in sour cream.  Stir till thick, but don’t boil.

Yum, yum.  I usually schedule french fries some time after making this roast -so good with this gravy.
