Today I made Heather’s Leftover Salad. Over the weekend I made some skillet roasted chicken seasoned with Herbes de Provence, garlic, sea salt and pepper.
So with my leftover chicken I made a salad for dinner tonight. Super quick and easy to make. I suppose you can use whatever vegetables you want but here’s what is in mine:
4 chopped pieces of roasted chicken tenderloins
1 package baby Spinach
1 green bell pepper
Shredded mozzarella cheese
I just chopped up all the veggies and am serving with my favorite dressing. My family loves leftovers so they got leftovers and veggies all in one meal.
Have a blessed evening!

Tonight’s recipe is Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo with Veggies from Taste of Home Simple and Delicious. Really good and really easy. It is ready in about 20 minutes.
1 Package (9 oz) refrigerated fettuccine
3 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 package (9 oz) ready to serve roasted chicken breast strips.
1 1/2 cups Alfredo sauce
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Fill a Dutch oven two-thirds full of water; bring to a boil. Add fettuccine and vegetables; return to boil. Cook on high for 2-3 minutes or until tender; drain. Stir in chicken and Alfredo sauce; heat through. Sprinkle with cheese.
It was really filling and I have tons of left overs. I hope it freezes well.
