We tend to keep Craisins (dried cranberries) in our cupboard most of the time. They are my absolute favorite to throw into chicken salad! This past Sunday we made a giant roaster chicken for dinner as we had guests – with Christmas leftovers (ham), party leftovers (hors d’oeuvres), and now the chicken… something HAD to be done! I whipped up a big bowl of my favorite chicken salad for lunch yesterday because my dad and stepmother were still in town. I made so much that it was still delicious today!
My meal plan today says I was supposed to make Italian, but when I realized that we had WAY more leftover pot roast than I was comfortable throwing away I knew that I had to change the plan. After looking for some inspiration on some different web forums, I thought about the nice fresh broccoli we purchased at the market on Sunday and knew I had to go for stirfry!
This dish was SO easy and I am glad I made it. I feel good about using up my leftovers and it definitely recreated the beef. I also liked that throwing in raw broccoli (sometimes I use frozen) kept the veggie nice and crunchy. Highly recommend!
