Drunken Chicken Part Deaux

Hello everyone. If you didn’t read last week’s post about whole chicken cooked in wine, check it out because this week I am making not one more meal from the same chicken, but two. That’s right. I got three meals for two from one chicken actually four since the enchiladas fed dad and I twice. I even used the leftover au jus for gravy last night and it was the best I have made in a long time.

Last week dad and I had the leg quarters for dinner leaving the backbones and breast meat.

To make the enchiladas, I took and shredded the meat into a dish and took out a smaller bowl for chicken salad ,the other I made chicken enchiladas.

For the enchiladas I took about 2 cups of meat, cooked it in a skillet with diced onion and a packet of  taco seasoning with a cup of water. I cooked it down and let it sit about half an hour. I shredded some Monterey Jack cheese and some sharp cheddar about 4 ounces each .  I put about 1/4 cup salsa verde in bottom of a baking dish.

Six 10 inch flour tortillas and divide the chicken among each and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese in each. Roll burrito style and place in dish. Cover with salsa verde bake about 15 minutes until hot and bubbly add cheese  put back in oven for a few minutes to melt cheese.

Serve with diced tomatoes, pico de gallo quacame sour cream and any other condiments you like. If you have a bigger family you can serve with rice and retried beans to make it a meal .

for the chicken salad I simply added diced celery, onion and a small amount of Mayo.  It was simple and yummy.

Do you have any recipes you like that you cook once and get two meals?
