    Tea: inspiration needed!

    Tea: inspiration needed! 7th Mar 05 at 3:05 PM
    My brain's not in gear today and I need help! We had a very large chicken for roast yesterday and I have about half a breast and the rest of the chicken left.
    What can I do with it!

    Curry is out as daughter won't eat it and I don't have time tonight to make 2 meals. Sweet and sour out as well.

    Got loads herbs, mushrooms, tomatoes - fresh, tinned and pureed - pasta, potatoes, bacon, eggs, garlic, baked beans, frozen peas and carrots, fresh cabbage.

    Got other stuff as well but just can't think!

    All help gratefully received! Aim to be eating around 6 pm if that's any help!

    What about a chicken-pasta bake using cooked pasta & a sauce made out of tinned tomatos, garlic & mushrooms?

    got any tinned mushroom or creamy type soup - chicken or celery?

    fry some onion mushroom garlic bacon if youl ike and some shredded chicken add a tin of creamy soup and serve with pasta or mashed spuds or rice could add other veg to the sauce too and even serve with cabbage!

    or just a regualr stir fry with soy sauce (dont bother with sweet and sour)

    finely sliced cabbage with the other veggies and some chicken and stuff would work fine

    this is the one my hubby would go for, lol!

    Think I've got some mushroom soup. Like both yours and Lillibet's ideas. Think I will give children the choice of which one (but not the bacon egg and chips one!).

    Thanks ladies - I knew someone would come up trumps

    Bit late to help you out today, but, maybe for another time ... I sometimes make a chicken crumble with leftovers (depending on the veg at hand, it could be chicken and sweetcorn, chicken and mushroom ).

    Just make a basic white sauce, add the chopped chicken/veg pop into a shallow oven dish, top with crumble topping (w/out the sugar!), bake in the oven and serve with side veggies.

    That sounds lovely Queenie - might have to try that. What's it like with other meat?

    Ended up doing a combination of Lillibet/Noo's ideas! Fried onion, bacon, garlic, mushrooms. Added chicken then mixed with chicken soup (didn't have mushroom) stirred in the pasta and baked, covered with grated cheese. Served with salad and fresh crusty bread! Was yummy

    You can certainly have a bash with other meats, but I would alter the basic white sauce ie, with leftover beef/ham I would use an onion sauce.

    Wow! Your supper sounds D-LISH, well done!

  • Queenie
    Scroll though this thread and you find ideas for sausages

    Toad in the hole?
    Sausage mash and beans?
    Sausage Omlette?

    Sausage casserole

    8 thick sausages
    tin tomatoes
    tin baked beans
    worcestershire sauce
    1 red pepper sliced
    1 green pepper sliced

    Brown the sausages, then add all the other ingredients and simmer until cooked. Add more worcestershire sauce if needed, could add mushrooms if you dont have enough peppers etc.

    Ok, but if you bung in a good dollop of golden syrup and a LOT more worcestershire sauce [and/[or soy] you get a barbecue sauce type version of things.

    Shrug. Whoever said a recipe was carved in stone?

    Brilliant, I've been looking at recipes for BBQ sauce. I recently bought a tin of golden syrup to make a coating for popcorn but wondered what to do with the rest of the tin, otherwise it will sit on the shelf until I throw it out because the lid will be stuck on!

    BBQ sauce with chicken in the slow cooker is lovely

    You could also make a giant yorkishire pudding and serve the casserole inside the Yorkie with mashed potato, my family love this.

    You're very welcome, but I'm sure there must be plenty of good recipes out there somewhere.

    LOL I've actually printed it rather than simply saved it so that I can make it later in the week. So you see - I do believe you.
