leftover madness

I'm trying to be more creative with leftovers these days and I think I hit a home-run with this one. With our leftover rotisserie chicken we made BBQ Pulled Chicken Sammies and oven fries!

All we did was shred enough chicken for two sandwhiches and put it in a small saucepan w/our favorite bottled BBQ sauce. Once warmed, put a pile of the chicken on a toasted bun and top with a scoop of cole slaw. We halved the recipe and we didn't have celery seed so we just left it out. I also went a little shy on the sugar and light mayonnaise but bumped the vinegar a bit.

Almost my favorite part of the meal was the dipping sauce we made. We stole the recipe from Liz & Jeremy. It's basically 1/3 C ketchup, 1-2 T sriracha hot sauce and a teaspoon of sugar. Mix it up in a bowl and you're all set! Adjust sriracha and sugar based on your own tastes and enjoy!

I need to be better at left overs. Sandwiches are a good idea. I used to be really good at it and then I got married to Mr. RefuseLeftOvers. I'm going to trick him into it though, this idea was great! Thank you.

I think the trick is to try and make the leftovers into a totally different item. Something that barely resembles what it once was.
