If you're looking for what to do with leftover chicken soup, you can strain out the liquid and make it more of a stew. Then pour the stew over something else-wide noodles, rice, couscous, lentils (cooked of course!). Or make up some dumplings and make chicken dumpling stew.

If you just have leftover chopped chicken, I like to make a from-scratch chicken & bean chili. And there was another suggestion to look at the SP recipe section, I agree, there are lots of great menu ideas there, I use it all the time when I'm looking for fresh ideas!

find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 34 pounds .

i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.

it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 164 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth

i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.

Check out the recipe section on here and there's also a calculator to create/tweak your own recipes.

Leftover chicken can be used to make a great roll up sandwich. I use Mission carb balance whole wheat tortillas. Spread a laughing cow cheese wedge on your tortilla and add whatever veggies you enjoy. Lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, bell pepper, onion are just a few examples.

While I was sick last week, I made some chicken soup...but now that I am feeling better,I'm tired of soup,
SO, today I said, "Hey! I'll make a chicken pot pie with the leftover soup!"
BAD IDEA...pot pies are WAY high in calories, carbs and fat, so my numbers are WAY off today!
I need to NOT cook so much at once!
And I need more ways to cook leftover chicken--that won't ruin my healthy streak for the week!
Any ideas?
