Your New Use for Leftover Chicken: Chicken Stir-Fry

July 16, 2014

Last night I didn’t feel like cooking. I just could not even. I also was over salad. Done. Can’t do it. Finito. But I had some leftover chicken breast and I needed a quick idea for it. What did you do you, you ask? Well, I did a big, easy, chicken and veggie stir-fry. It turned out to be just the ticket too.

Leftover Chicken Stir-Fry

Serves: 2


  • 3/4 – 1 lb of already cooked chicken breasts
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • Optional: 1 onion

    Wow Paige! This sounds perfect. My family always have left overs and sometimes I just end up throwing them out because my kids wouldn’t want the same dish over again. This recipe is amazing because my family loves everything with chicken in it.
