    jenna sais quoi's Note:

    This is one of those "necessity is the mother of invention" things- I hesitate to call it a recipe! I had a few stray chicken breasts and some pork chops that were a wee bit too dry to fly solo....after a quick cupboard rummage, I came up with this, and was surprised at how well it was received- my leftover-phobic hubby had THIRDS. And because the meat is already cooked, it goes from table to stove in about 15 minutes.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 leftover cooked chicken breasts
    • 3 leftover cooked pork loin chops (Any combo works here, you could also throw beef or ground turkey, or even taco meat or tofu into the)
    • 0.5 (18 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce (I used the Trader Joe's Brand, which has a kick to it!)
    • 3 (16 ounce) cans chili beans (I used Bush's- it comes in a spicy sauce)
    • 1/8 cup brown sugar


    1. 1
      Shred/dice/crumble meat into a good-sized saucepan.
    2. 2
      Add BBQ sauce and beans- heat over med/high until bubbly. Stir in brown sugar, and keep stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved and mixture is heated through.
    3. 3
      I like to serve this with mac n' cheese, succotash, and a green salad -- plus maybe some garlic bread if I am feeling decadent. Yum!
