    Trinkets's Note:

    Leftovers do not need to be boring. Roast some garlic, boil some pasta and have some fun! Great with an Edna Valley Chardonnay, and a mixed green salad with a balsamic vinaigrette.

      I have made this many times, and I'm just now writing a is DELICIOUS! This is my go-to leftover chicken dish. I make it with pastured butter and homemade chicken stock for added nutrition. A family favorite for sure!

      I really liked this recipe though I will admit that I had to make a few changes based on what I had on hand. I used white onion instead of shallots, added some green bell pepper, and doubled all the liquid to make more sauce. I served mine over whole wheat spaghetti, but would have liked wheat rotini or egg noodles better I think. I also added some parmesan cheese to the sauce mix to melt and add flavor. I liked this as a nice change from regular spaghetti and it helped use my leftover chicken breast. I served mine with garlic cheese toast.
