What to do with leftover roast chicken

If you buy a large family size chicken and there is some leftover, here is what I sometimes do with it.

Chicken in cream and pesto sauce with tagliatelle

You will need

The chicken cut into small slices or cubed

An onion peeled and sliced

2 tablespoons of green pesto sauce

Half a carton of either double cream or creme fraiche

A splash of white wine if desired

Olive oil to cook with

Salt and pepper to taste

Fry the onion until translucent in a little olive oil. Add the chicken, pesto sauce, cream, wine if using and the salt and pepper.  Heat through on a low heat for about 10 minutes, about the time the tagliatelle needs to be cooked in boiling water.

Mushrooms would be a good addition if you have some in the fridge or in a tin.
