One of the cookbooks I use pretty often is called The Pleasures of Cooking For One. I particularly like the chicken recipes. My first attempt at making a whole roast chicken in January was a rousing success. But although I could NEARLY eat a whole chicken in just a couple sittings (it's that good), eating chicken just straight gets a little old.
But happily, the cookbook gives you multiple choices for leftovers. The next recipe is for Chicken Divan.
You start with a bed of steamed broccoli.
Then whip up some white sauce, with a dash of vegetable broth (mine was pink from beets!).
Add in leftover chicken, with some scraps tucked in the sides.
Top with the cream sauce and another sprinkle of cheese, and pop under the broiler to toast it all together...
