These came about when DBF and I were camping and we were cleaning out the coolers! We had leftover BBQ's chicken and a few pieces of bacon from breakfast. Try them on the grill as they are not nearly as good done in a pan on the stove. Any cooked chicken will work, try it with a spicy fajita style or BBQ like we did!
This is a very simple recipe, and tastes delicious. I just whipped it up with ingredients on hand, and wanted to record it to refer to next time. It's great for the South Beach diet, too. I used left over turkey breast (my standby - Herbed Turkey Breast by Kate in Ontario #22235). Note to World Tour participants - California is a large producer of walnuts. This recipe represent that state.
I'm on a quest to find recipes that use store-bought, pre-cooked chicken, and this certainly fit the bill! And it looks wonderfully easy. As bhg.com says, "Boiling water is the most time-consuming element of making this super-fast chicken spin on mac-and-cheese."
This is a refinement of a recipe I created when my boyfriend was sick, and I wanted to make chicken noodle soup from what we had on hand. For the authentic poor college student version - use 1 can of Swanson's chicken broth + 1 cup water, and a brick of ramen noodles. I get nostalgic just thinking about it.
But I like this version better.
This is NOT "authentic" or "Greek", but a really tasty QUICK and hearty soup for lunch. I THINK it may have been in a very early edition of Quick Cooking. The chicken is optional, but if you happen to have leftovers, adds to satisfaction.
