What do you do with a 9 pound chicken after you’ve enjoyed it straight from the BBQ?  You search Pinterest and find some new recipes so you aren’t eating ‘just chicken’ for the next two weeks.

I found a recipe called Magic Chicken Pie and it was so good!  I started by finding a recipe for Bisquick since I don’t tend to buy boxed stuff.  Mix up a big batch and keep it in the freezer.  Check out the link too, she’s got lots of recipes.

6 cup flour

1 Tbsp salt

3 Tbsp baking powder

1 cup Crisco

And now for the Magic Pie -it seems really odd, but follow the instructions as written

Melt 4 Tbsp butter in a 9×13 inch pan (350F oven).

Meanwhile mix 2 c Bisquick with 1 1/2 c milk of choice.

Sprinkle 2 cups shredded chicken over the melted butter.  Then 2 cups vegetables (frozen or leftover).  Finally 1 cup shredded cheese.

Pour the batter over the meat/veggies.

Mix 1 can cream of chicken soup with 2 chicken stock cubes and 1 1/2 cups chicken stock.  Stir till smooth and carefully pour over-top of everything in the casserole pan.

Bake 350F for 45-50 min.

Give it a couple of minutes to quit boiling and dig in!

 

Another yummy leftover recipe I found was for Chicken Roll-Ups.

Start by making tortillas

2 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

3 Tbsp oil

1/2-3/4 cup water

Knead just till smooth.  Cover and let sit 30 min.  Divide into 8 and roll into 8″ circles.  Dry fry for 45 sec a side.

For the Roll-Ups:

2 cups shredded chicken

1/3 cup BBQ sauce

1/2 cup shredded cheese (I use a Monterrey jack/mozzarella combo)

Divide this between the 8 tortillas.  Roll up tight and bake 425F for 6-8 minutes.

Check out the websites and see the other yummy recipes they have.

Homemade Tortillas

When I have the time I like to make our tortillas from scratch.  They don’t really take a lot of time, but sometimes it’s just easier to open the taco box.

Tortillas -makes 8 small

2 c flour                         3/4c water

3T oil                              1/2t salt

Mix everything in a bowl, adding enough water.  Knead until smooth and let rest for 30 minutes.

 

 

Divide into 8 and roll out into circles (about 8 inches).

Dry fry over medium heat for about 45 seconds per side.  Stack and cover with a tea towel to keep them soft.

 

See, they are that easy.  I really should make them more often  🙂

The other day I used these tortillas to make quesadillas.  A good way to use up leftover roast beef.  AND it’s something Ella will gobble up.
