Recipe of week

This week, The Ginger Pig shared an easy recipe to use up the leftovers from your roast dinner.

Tim's Leftover Roast Chicken Pot from The Ginger Pig.

Two onions, finely chopped
Two red peppers, thinly sliced
A good handful of your favourite mushrooms, sliced
Leftover cold roast chicken
Sliced smoked streaky bacon
Two tomatoes, sliced

For the sauce
Cheddar cheese, grated
Plain flour


Soften the onions and red peppers in an oven proof pan with a good chunk of butter. Break up the leftover roast chicken into chunks and spread over the top, then add the sliced mushrooms.

Melt the butter and cheese into the flour and milk in a separate pan to make a thick cheese sauce and pour it over to cover the other ingredients. Put the sliced tomato on top. Finally, top with the streaky bacon. Bake in the oven at 180C until the bacon is crisp.

Serve with pasta or jacket potatoes and broccoli for a really hearty meal or a green salad with French dressing.
