We typically have one extra meal out of ours. I'm sure as my boys (I have three - eldest is 10) get older I will have less and less leftovers.

My one constant is to make stock from the carcass of a chicken I cook in my CP - you can make it right in the crock, just strain out the "ick" - leave in the juices (skim off the fat), add your "extras" (I add a quartered onion, a couple carrots, celery chunks, a garlic clove, bay leaf or two, and peppercorns) and have it cook overnight. Strain in the morning, and we can have soup using whatever meat is left that night!

With my 24 yr old son still living at home, I never can get another meal...he eats everything up! Leftover chicken meals would be great!

Magazines sometimes have "cook once eat three times" ideas. But, I don't always find their ideas realistic for my family and our life. I'm hoping that we can get tried and true ideas here.

Wow! I'm a "clean slate" on this one. I just put leftovers in single serving tupperware! I'm excited to get some ideas from everyone!

How about some ideas for using the leftovers from your crockpot to make additional meals.

Day 1: Whole chicken in the crockpot.
Day 2: Chicken and Bean Enchiladas. They were baked in the oven. Leftovers in the freezer for quick meals.
Day 3: BBQ sandwiches. Take leftover chicken and combine with BBQ sauce. I put mine in my small 1 quart crockpot.
