    After spinning some chickens I find I have almost a full chicken left over. Having five teens for dinner tomorrow. (There were five tonight). Looking for ideas to “recycle” all that chicken for another dinner. Only limits, we keep kosher, so no pork, shellfish, or dairy. Ideas and suggestions are appreciated. Oh my daughter and son hate hot and spicy, (oh we’re did I go wrong?).

    Scratch the enchiladas as it is dairy. Tacos

    Corn tortillas fried shells, shredded chicken olives a touch of green enchilada sauce, mango cabbage topped or chopped lettuce and radish. Salsa as desired.

    Send them all to the Golden Corral. They'll find something they like. lol
  5. Chicken Tetrazzini?
    Here's a recipe with coconut replacing the the dairy,

    You could make chicken curry with rice and use vegan yogurt. You could make chicken salad (cranberry, walnut, apple chicken salad) and use vegan mayo, or look up "no mayo chicken salad"- lots of recipes, like dairy-free curry chicken salad, https://www.foodfaithfitness.com/easy-dairy-free-paleo-chicken-salad/

    You could shred the chicken and warm it with your favorite bbq sauce for pulled chicken sandwiches and make some sides to go with it, like roasted potatoes or vinegar slaw, https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2014/06/vinegar-coleslaw-recipe.html

    Yup some great ideas here and my vote would be for a chicken salad with some type of vinegar dressing over a lettuce bed.

    I vote for the Enchiladas, I have a simple (lazy) recipe, that uses Cream of Chicken + sour cream as the sauce, that is way better than it sounds and if you already have chicken done is like 10 min prep time,

    You would have to make adjustments for the sour cream I am guessing, but that shouldn't be tough.
    And if you make them spicy, it only needs to feed 3 teens ;-)

    BTW, I salute you sir, we have had our 15 year old granddaughter for the two months, and coming up with "Katie Approved" meals is one heck of a challenge, I can't image what X5 is like!

    We like Hay stacks also, Bed of frito or corn chips, topped with choice of beans, (refried, Black, Pinto, olives onions chicken, shredded lettuce, chopped cilantro, and salsa or hot sauce of choice. Cheese eaters can add cheese if the want.

    Coincidentally, I'm doing something similar this evening using shredded meat I pulled from a chicken I cooked Sunday while preparing stock. I'm using a recipe from the NY Times that I came across and have prepared once with a couple minor personal adaptions with excellent results. The recipe is called Sesame-Miso Chicken Salad and and the NYT link is below https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1019437-sesame-miso-chicken-salad

    Regarding keeping kosher and dietary restrictions the ingredients that could be questionable are sesame (paste/tahini-oil-seeds) and shiro miso (fermented soybeans). If I recall correctly, both the sesame and soybeans are considered kitniyot and, while prohibited during Pesach, they're acceptable throughout the rest of the year for most others. Regarding the prepared miso, I know that some brands, such as Eden, are "Certified" if that's of concern to you.

    Aside from that, if all meets, or can be easily adapted to, your requirements, it's a nice change from the run of the mill chicken salads, simple and quick to prepare, and very tasty.

    For me....since it is summer time, get some local lettuce, tomatoes, peppers etc. and make a super salad. Add what ever you want or even have on hand, then shred the leftover chicken add to the salad, mix in some good olive oil and red wine vinegar and a glass or two of a nice chilled white wine!!

    Fried Rice is an easy one. You just need chopped onions..a bag of frozen peas, frozen corn/canned corn. <I prefer frozen, it's crispier>. Then oil and seasoning to taste and a wicked hot pan.

    Or this; http://www.deepsouthdish.com/2016/11/cranberry-chicken-salad.html I mean..cranberries are always good.

    This is one I do with skinless boneless chicken but -every- time I make it, it lasts about from the time it's out of the oven till just about cool enough to not burn the mouth..- http://www.rampantscotland.com/recipes/blrecipe_heather.htm **I can't promise it's actually Scottish, but it's very good and I believe it would be kosher. You can use any honey, and by curry powder it means the generic yellow kind at stores**

    Just a list of some I'm finding:

    If you want more peculiar and random recipes, just shoot me a message Smoker. I am curious; is it Kosher law about dairy, or a visiting eater? I thought Kosher laws allowed Dairy. Not that I've had much experience with them. I only cooked once for some one with halal requirements, never for any one who had the Kosher requirements that I know of. Though as I understood it back then, what I cooked likely could have been eaten by both as long as the meat was kosher certified.

    It's not really soup weather but I LOVE using smoked chicken for Chicken and Dumplings soup!!!!!
    I love soups so I eat them all year around even in the TX heat.

    I'm not sure that is your desire in the Arizona heat but I figured I would throw this out there as an idea :)
