Leftover Chicken

I often make chicken and have lots left over. I don't really want to reheat the chicken. I'd rather use it in another recipe. Here are several recipes to use your left over chicken:

Chicken Salad

3 cups cooked, cubed chicken
2/3 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1 bunch green onions, chopped
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
3/4 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip

Combine chicken, celery, relish, onion and eggs. Toss with mayonnaise and chill.

Chicken Casserole

3 cups cooked, cubed chicken
1 - 16 ounce package frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1 - 10 ounce can cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup water
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups crushed cheese crackers

Combine chicken, broccoli, soup, water, mayonnaise and cheese. Mix well. Pour into casserole dish. Top with cracker crumbs. Bake uncovered for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Chicken and Stuffing

2 1/2 cups cooked, cubed chicken
1 - 6 ounce box of stuffing with seasoning packet
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups half and half

Combine stuffing mix, seasoning packet and butter. Mix well. Press into the bottom of a 2 quart casserole dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Allow to cool.

Combine chicken and cheese and spread over stuffing mixtures.

Beat sour cream and half and half until well blended. Pour over chicken mixture.

Reduce oven to 325 degrees and bake for 35 minutes.
