chief_cook2's Leftover Cheesy Chicken + Pasta
I take 16 oz. cottage cheese 1 egg 4 oz parmesan cheese and about 4 oz mozzerella and mix it together. I add shredded chicken (probably about 2 cups more or less depending on how you like it) and 10 oz frozen spinach thawed and squeezed drained. I stuff into cooked pasta shells or un-cooked mannicotti. Pour Alfredo sauce to cover the bottom of 9x13 pan. Add shells and cover with Alfredo and Mozzerella. Bake for about 1 hour at 350 degrees. Sorry it's not more exact.
1. In a saucepan, mix 1 - 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 onion diced fine; chunk of butter, salt, poultry seasoning and sage (all to taste) and bring to a boil. Thicken with cornstarch. Set aside. 2. Dice cooked chicken. Place in mixing bowl and add milk sauce and 1 well beaten egg.
3. Mix in cracker crumbs until solid (so that you can make croquette balls).
4. Roll balls in cracker crumbs - refrigerate.
5. Bake at 350 degrees until done.
This is a good recipe for leftover chicken or turkey. You can use as little or as much as you have.
4 tbsp. butter 4 tbsp. flour 1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper 2 c. milk 1 1/2 c. cooked chicken Frozen peas

1 green bell pepper 2 c. cubed chicken 3 c. cooked rice 1 (13-16 oz.) can pineapple bits 2 cans cream of chicken soup 2 cloves garlic, crushed 2 tbsp. salad oil 2 tbsp. soy sauce 1/4 c. toasted almonds
