Lucky Leftover Monday

Last week...chicken thighs were on sale.  Had to buy all they would let me bring home and put in the freezer.   Sorry folks, I believe the thighs are the most flavorful, tender and tasty part of any chicken.   Thighs are great for  BBQ, braise, roast and boil for Arroz con Pollo

Last week, I made my Buttermilk Oven Fried Chicken which is always a hit.  I cook extra for a good reason...it is great for Fried Chicken Salad.   Tonight I have three leftover thighs and leftover mashed potatoes.   Let's get busy with a tasty redux. 


My inspiration was at the grocery this weekend.  They were featuring twice baked potatoes, which I like but would never buy at a grocery.   I can make them at home for a tenth of the price they ask. Whipped up the leftover mashed potatoes with two eggs and a huge handful of Parmesan cheese.  Into the pastry bag with a big tip and piped into my serving bowls.  



The leftover chicken was removed from the bone.  Chopped in big chunks and sautéed with mushrooms and onions in butter.  



After a good ten minutes of sauté, I added a quarter cup of flour and stirred to combine.  One cup of cream is added and reduced on low making an easy cream gravy.   Added a big cup of mixed vegetables and simmered briefly.    Added my creamed chicken mixture to the center of the bowl.  





Into the  preheated to 450F oven for twenty minutes 
or until potatoes have browned up.     A comfort dinner for sure!! 

  
Bon Appétit
and 
Enjoy YOUR Wonderful World!
