Leftover Roast Chicken with Cannelini Beans

Posted By Kerri

I say this often but one of the very best things about a roast chicken is the amount of leftovers it generates. If you were left with lots of turkey leftovers after Christmas then this may be a bit too soon for chicken leftovers, luckily we managed to avoid that by going on holiday.

We decided to combine the chicken with some leeky, mustardy, beans. I cooked the beans on Sunday while the chicken was cooking so all I had to do tonight was soften some leeks and garlic, add the beans with some oil and mustard (raspberry mustard in this case, if you were wondering what those funny pink specks were) and then stir in the chicken. I added some extra kale for a bitter note to counteract the sweetness of the mustard.

    This seems a far healthier option than the pie I made with my leftover chicken…!

    It’s that time of year. As much as I would have loved pie, Christmas and a two week holiday means it’s healthy eating all the way 🙁

    Looks delicious. Similarly, love roasting a chicken simply for the leftovers! So many delicious options.
