A super simple recipe to use up chicken leftovers.
Have leftover chicken on hand?
One of my favorite ways to use leftover chicken or turkey is in a sandwich. Sure, you could just stick some meat in bread and call it a day, but I like to make these hot sandwiches instead.
It’s hardly any work, and can be customized a variety of ways depending on what toppings or sauce you use. Next time I make them, I’m going to be sure to have pineapple on hand, because I love pairing up sweet fruit with spicy sauces.
The other bonus with this (aside from the quick prep time) is that they’re a hit with the kids. Call ’em Sloppy Hens if you want. All you need is some steamed veggies or a salad to round it out!
