Every 6 weeks or so I head over to Costco and purchase the bulk items I need. Then I pick up a roasted chicken so that dinner can be a little easier but we always have chicken leftovers. And that is how this recipe came about ~ how to use leftover chicken. This recipe can be used with any meat though but it tasted really great with chicken.
Using leftover chicken makes this a very simple and easy recipe along with the fact that it uses ingredients that most people already have in their homes.
I used Trader Joe’s Chicken Broth ~ just open and pour what you need out.
And to thicken the sauce I use Arrowroot Powder instead of flour ~
Then of course there’s your shredded chicken ~
Looks like a lot of chicken, doesn’t it? This recipe is so good though that it will be gone in a heartbeat. Alright, alright, not that quickly or you’ll choke. hehe
You’ll basically saute the veggies, toss the tapioca flour over them, add the broth and stir ~
Then add the chicken and whala!!!! (You’ll notice the whala doesn’t apply to how wonderful the picture came out ~ not sure what happened there.)
But, that’s pretty much what you’ll be doing. I served this dish on a bed of mashed garlic sweet potatoes with a side of avocado. Scrumptious!
