Leftovers: Lemon Chicken and Grilled Talapia

kkak97 Nov 8, 2007 06:41 PM

Leftover chicken from last night and leftover Talapia from tonight. Don't want to throw these away and not sure what I can do to reuse them singularly or in combination.
Any suggestions?

    I make fish tacos with leftover grilled fish. Flake the fish, wrap it in foil, and heat it in a low oven. It doesn't have to be super-hot for the tacos, which prevents the fish from getting overcooked, which is the biggest challenge in using leftover fish.

    I prefer corn tortillas to flour but you could use either. For condiments, I usually make a creamy cole slaw with mayonnaise, Chipolte Tabasco, garlic to use as a condiment. I also buy fresh salsa and add avocado, mango to it.

      Talapia sandwich on ciabatta? For the chicken I'd make some angel hair and mix that up, maybe a few capers?

        Those are good suggestions. Thank you.

        I'm just terrible at coming up with ways to use leftovers. I just love cooking but my mind just blanks when it comes to leftovers. I just don't have that creative gene.
