My leftover roast chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy were in the freezer for a couple of weeks. Too many other things going on including family guests visiting on their way to Florida for the winter. We had a wonderful trip down memory lane and sharing tales about family members we had not heard from in some time.
I removed the chicken from the freezer to thaw. The chicken was placed on top of the leftover mashed potatoes and gravy. The gravy really is my casserole binder. To this bowl, I add the chopped vegetables of your choice. Any savory vegetables are nice but use the vegetables your family enjoys. Combine completely and smooth into your baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam.
|Use your kitchen shears to get chicken into small bites.|
|My additional vegetables include sliced mushrooms, chopped carrots, celery and onions|
My mainstay item in the freezer all the time is Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry. Let it thaw for thirty minutes on the countertop before rolling out.
|Save the excess dough for cut outs and decorations.|
|Lid top makes your pattern to fit.|
|Ease into casserole dish.|
