Foodie Corner – 2015 – Post #3 – Two for One

What is your favorite two-for-one recipe?

My two cents, but please share yours:

I like to make a double batch of chicken salad (cooked and diced chicken, mayonnaise, diced celery), chill one half to use in sandwiches, use the other half as the sauce base for chicken tetrazzini. Just thin out the sauce with a little chicken broth, add in a bunch of grated parmesan, and stir in precooked spaghetti. Cover and nuke until hot and bubbly, usually 3-5 minutes. Enjoy.

    • Hi Mona, Instead of pasta, you could substitute, rice, quinoa, or even cauliflower that’s been chopped to a rice-like consistency. Ooh, substituting spaghetti squash or zucchini ribbons would work, too. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
