ways to save overcooked chicken?
I overcooked two chicken breasts the other day, and I hoping y'all can suggest a way to salvage them. Some sort of stew or soup?
Or, should I just compost them?
Overcooked chicken can sometimes be combined with a dressing to make a\chicken salad sandwiches.
It could also be added, cut into small chunks, to a finished chicken/veg. stock for a soup.
Whatever you do with them, put in lots of gravy, mayo, stock, or something else juicy. Also put in a bunch of other stuff that's not overcooked. You could make a nice chicken pot pie with lots of vegetables, shred the chicken up finely, then cover it all with gravy and place into pie crust and bake.
Chicken salad is popular. Diced celery and onion, shredded chicken, mayo, mustard, celery seeds. (Use a lot of the vegetables).
You could chop it up and put it into chicken noodle soup, but I wouldn't add the chicken until the last minute. You don't want to cook it any further.
I vote for a cold chicken salad which won't cook the chicken anymore. My favorite includes mayo, yogurt, apples, nuts, raisins and lots of curry powder and chutney. Wonderful on lettuce, awesome on wheat bread.
Shred them and soak in chicken broth; drain and mix with a green chile or regular enchilada sauce. fill enchiladas with the soaked chicken, sauteed onions, queso blanco, roll and smother in sauce. bake as minimally as possible.
Or dice and soak in broth, then add to cacciatore at the last minute.
