Do You Have Shredded Chicken Sandwich Leftovers?
I know this recipe is a popular one, mostly for the emotional connection. What if you just want one meal of Shredded Chicken Sandwiches for the nostalgia? What do you do with the leftovers? How about turning them into an equally comforting meal- Chicken Noodle Soup. Two tasty comfort food meals for the price of one! 😉
Use Shredded Chicken Sandwich Leftovers For Frugal Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
I love that this recipe uses up leftovers, so no waste and is great for meal planning too (2 meals taken care of!) The sloppy shredded chicken base will be used to make a modified roux. It makes this chicken noodle soup a little more “hearty” due to the breadcrumbs/croutons/crackers that you use to make it.
Another time saver tip, I sometime use a “mirepoix” frozen veggie mix instead of the fresh veggies. This cuts down on the cutting time and I always have it on hand in the freezer (also often a steal at $1 a bag).
This is what I call a “Make this, then that” meal! 😉 Will it be going into your meal planning rotation?
