anything I can do with this left over fried chicken? I dont exactly want to waste 12 pieces or chicken or any other food for that matter. I was thinking making chili with it and removing the skin and coating. any other ideas would be great.
Here's a nice looking recipe for macaroni salad made with leftover fried chicken:
I had a friend who used to put her favorite bbq sauce over the fried chicken and bake it for a while which means you're basically transforming it into oven bbq chicken.
I usually take the meat off the bones, make a stock from the bones and skin, and use the meat in a variety of ways - chicken salad, soup, a-la-king, etc.
I'm thinking aside from eating it cold, which I dearly love too, but 12 pieces is a lot...
So perhaps a making it Asian, with a Chinese lemon/garlic sauce and cilantro. With either jasmine rice or make it sweet and sour chicken with peppers, carrots, pineapple and tart sweet sauce. mmmm that thought is making me hungry!
Where I come from, there's no such thing as "left-over fried chicken". Something's wrong here.
But seriously, it's intended to be eaten either cold or at room temperature, at least for lots of folks. For many parts of the South, that's the whole point. Trying to find anything to do with it is like trying to find something to do with cold beer. It's a no-brainer.
