Leftover Fried Chicken Bliss

We've all been stuck in that common quagmire of having leftover fried chicken and not really knowing whether to toss it or reheat it, which gives me a serious case of the blahs. The following two recipes are quick and easy; favorites in my house, so don't toss that bucket of KFC just yet (you may also use your own ❤)!!!

Fried chicken tacos
You will need
Leftover fried chicken
Pre-shredded Mexican cheese
Salsa for garnish
Corn tortillas, warmed
Vegetable oil

Begin by cutting the fried chicken into cubes. Add approximately 2 tablespoons vegetable oil to a skillet or wok. Cook chicken until warm.  Construct tacos according to your liking, and serve!  (I said it was simple, no?)

Fried Chicken Salad

Leftover fried chicken
Canned corn
Hard-boiled Eggs
Land O Lakes Cheddarella or cheese of your preference
Cherry Tomatoes
Fresh black peppercorns
Ranch dressing

This is a salad best served cold. First, put your eggs on to boil.   Next, cook both the broccoli and carrots until they are firm but able to cut through without effort.

 Drain. Cover and place in refrigerator for approximately ten minutes, or until no longer hot.

Peel eggs, and place in refrigerator as well.  Open and drain canned corn, add to broccoli and carrots, and place back into refrigerator.  Cube the chicken by cutting into small pieces.  

Shred lettuce and half the cherry tomatoes. Slice the cooled eggs or quarter into wedges.

Grate an ample amount of cheese.  Place lettuce into bowls first, followed by vegetable mixture, chicken, and garnish with cheese, tomatoes, eggs, ranch dressing, and freshly cracked black pepper. 

This recipe is sure to be a favorite at your next picnic.  Enjoy!!
