Creating A Tasty 'Leftovers' Meal From Last Nights Roast Chicken
Grilled Sage & Onion Panini With Roast Chicken...
Mum & I had Roast chicken with all the extras for dinner last night and she wanted chicken again tonight..
So.. I had to put this hub together because we just had these for dinner and it was sooo YUMMY!!!
An now that the dishes are waiting for me in the sink haha I'm here sharing this with you... (I will try not to burp!)
An important factor… if you are using Roast Chicken, then it must be within 24hours of it being cooked and have been covered & refrigerated properly once cooled. This helps to eliminate any chance of getting salmonella or food poisoning.
I won’t use chicken that has been left more than 24hours; I give that for the cat.
Panini's are well liked in NZ, I've never made one, but always buy them, if you are game enough to make your own, then well done you, for me, I buy them...
Approximate Meal For 2 People
2 Large Sage & Onion Panini's
Left over Roast Chicken
4 - 6 Small left over Roast Potatoes
Left over Cauliflower
Approx' 2 Cups of Stir-Fry Vegetables
Thick Steak Sauce (optional)
Margarine (butter if preferred)
Turn grill on, roughly about 100degC but that depends on the oven. Fan grill is always best.
Place mixed/stir fry veggies into bowl with hot water microwave on high for 8 minutes.
During this time, cut or rip chicken into pieces, when veggies are ready, heat chicken in microwave for 2 minutes while.
Do not drain veggies until ready to use.
Meanwhile, cut Panini’s lengthwise to create a pocket to be stuffed. (See photo) place the Panini’s onto dinner plates.
Hold the Panini open and spread the chicken gravy over the base. Place chicken pieces lavishly over the gravy, it's ok if they spill out over the edge. Next add the veggies, also ok if they spill out onto the plate.
Taking the left over cauliflower and roasted potatoes, arrange these so that the cauliflower is partially in the Panini but other pieces on the plate.
Spread a decent amount of margarine (or butter if preferred) over the Toast potatoes and cauliflower. Spread a reasonably thick amount on top of the Panini.
Gently splash with a little Worcestershire Sauce and a good sprinkle of Rosemary.
Place under the grill for 4minutes, which should have been already heated. Keep an eye on the Panini's so that they do not burn, you want them crisp but not crunchy.
The butter or margarine should be well melted but not discolored. Remove from grill, using a thick cloth, before taking your plate to somewhere comfortable or the dinner table, add a light spiral of thick steak sauce over entire meal… and enjoy..
