Any ideas for cooked chicken recipes?

I cut up chicken and cooked it last night. My husband ended up bringing home dinner. Any ideas or healthy recipes that are kid friendly also. Thanks!

    A french stick filled with cold cooked chicken is delicious although not overly health! Cold chicken salad is good, very healthy too! You can make loads of things with it, curries, pies, anything you would usually do with uncooked chicken. Just make sure you reheat it to a higher temperature than it was originally cooked at.

    i just looooove honey chicken. slice the chicken into smaler bitts and put them in a frying pan in which the oil is already very hot. make sure you have a big pan – because the frying is much better if the chickenpeaces have ‘space’ between them. grill them till they are tender and at the end poor some honey over it.
    hmmm….it’s sooo jummy!

    (don’t forget to put a little salt and pepper in the beginning of the frying too)

    Chicken salad? Either kind?

    You can either actually cut it up and eat it over a tossed salad, or mix it with mayonnaise and have a chunky chicken salad for sandwiches.

    My kids love chicken and noodles. Use the no yolk egg noodles, can of cream of chicken or celery. It takes less than 20 min when the chicken is cooked.

    I love having cooked chicken in the house. A few ideas:

    kid-friendly: add it to mac & cheese with some cooked broccoli to make it healthier

    tasty, healthy: chicken salad. I like to make mine with a bit of chiplote mayo, fresh green onions, celery, salt, pepper, lemon and whatever else you like. Gives it a nice spice, but uses less mayo so its healthier.

    You can put it in a pasta sauce, just add it as the sauce is cooking.

    Serve it in enchiladas (just buy tortillas, wrap the chicken in them with some cheese and grilled onions, then cover with a store-bought enchilada sauce…easy and one dish!).

    Chicken soup. Combine chicken broth/water, equal parts. Add carrots, celery, onion, salt & pepper, bay leaf, and the cooked chicken. Let that simmer down for a while, then add egg noodles. Don’t eat the bay leaf!

    I like to add cooked chicken to Zatarain’s boxed rice. I especially like to add it to the Jambalaya and Red Beans and Rice. It’s a one pot meal.

    I also shred it and simmer it with salsa and use it for tacos, burritos, or nachos.

    My husband shreds it and then sautes some onions until tender, adds bbq sauce and the chicken. He simmers it until everythig is hot and then makes a sandwich with it.

    Did you fry or bake the chicken? If baked, try chopping up the chicken and making chicken spaghetti. I have a good recipe, let me know.

    Chicken salad is great. Debone chicken and cut it into small bites, Add a little chopped celery and onion, some chopped dill pickle, mayonaisse to your desired consistency, salt and pepper and there you have a great sandwich. There are a ton of things you can put in chicken salad, the previous recipe is just my favorite. Substitute diced apple for the onion and pickle (leave the celery) and you have a yummy crunchy salad. Also, if you like soup, debone the chicken, put it in a pot with some chicken broth, some celery, carrots, onion, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, Add egg noodles or rice and cook until done. You have a hearty chicken soup. Enjoy Finally, if you didn’t fry the chicken, if you baked it or roasted it, you can just lay the pieces in a dish or on a pan, brush with a little barbecue sauce, and put in the oven until it’s hot. Barbecued chicken. yum. However, if you fried it, the barbecued in the oven won’t taste very good.

    “Fried Chicken”

    2 1/2 to 3-lb. broiler-fryer chicken, cut up
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon paprika
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    Salad oil

    Wash chicken and pat dry. Mix flour, salt, paprika and pepper. Heat salad oil (1/4″) in large skillet. Coat chicken with flour mixture.
    Cook chicken in oil over medium heat 15-20 minutes or until light brown. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 30-40 minutes or until thickest pieces are fork-tender. If skillet cannot be covered tightly, add 1-2 tablespoons water. Turn chicken once or twice to assure even cooking. Remove cover for last 5 minutes of cooking to crisp chicken.
    (Here’s a quick and easy trick for coating chicken. Place the flour mixture in a paper or plastic bag. Add a few pieces of chicken to bag and shake until thoroughly coated; repeat until all pieces have been coated.)
