This is the "Leftover Edition." Chicken leftovers, of course!
Since my husband is a nurse, his lunch break is short. Sometimes nonexistent. He often "inhales" his food so he can get back to his patients. So, I cook accordingly. I almost always make more than enough food for dinner. Nurse Boy and I rely on leftovers for our lunches. When we are cleaning up our dinner, I usually pack Nurse Boy's lunch at the same time.
And, sometimes I cook WAY too much. Or, we get tired of the leftovers after a few days. So, what's a girl to do?
The other day I had 3 chicken breasts, hot dog buns, and mozzarella cheese in the fridge. So, I came up with a delicious sandwich creation.
You will need:
3-4 cooked, cut up chicken breasts
1 can of rinsed black beans
1 cup of mozzarella cheese
1 cup of salsa
taco seasoning or chili powder, optional
Throw everything into a pan on the stove top and simmer on medium heat until heated through. Serve in a hot dog or hamburger bun.
I use almost the same recipe for chicken soft tacos, but I replace the mozzarella cheese with 2 cups of cooked, brown rice and increase the salsa by another cup. This mixture can be topped with cheese and sour cream and served in flour tortillas.
