Great Holiday Leftover Ideas: Pulled Chicken Melt
January 7, 2012 § 2 Comments
Every year, Christmas passes and stuffs your refrigerator with so much food. What do you do with all these? A friend’s solution to his “too much food” dilemma is to throw a party to serve all the cold cuts, cheeses, hams and wine he received over the holidays. A cool idea, don’t you think?
Overwhelmed with the pile of food I have in my refrigerator, I noted to myself to eat at least half of what’s in it before I leave for a trip next week. Not an easy task really, but I shall try.
Knowing that I love pulled pork, my US-based cousin home for the holidays, brought this for me. She said the pork was not available but this was just as yummy.
I usually have them the traditional way – on a bun but I didn’t have any. I made Pulled Chicken Melt instead with leftover Fontina on sliced ciabatta bread.
A few minutes in the toaster oven, just to melt the cheese and lunch is ready and yummy to boot. How easy is that?
This is great as hors d’oeuvres too. Ahhh… I shall share this at tomorrow’s “leftover” party. Jack Daniel’s Pulled Chicken consumed. Fontina consumed. More to go…
