paleo leftover chicken recipes


If you missed my live Google hangout where I shared budgeting tips for the Paleo diet, you can watch it here on my Youtube channel.  I had a blast talking to Liz from Paleo on a Budget and learned some great information about couponing, something I was completely clueless about.

Anyhow, back to this post which shares helpful ways to use up leftover chicken.  One of the things I often struggle with on this diet is how to reuse  leftovers in a fun and new way.  I often go to my fail safe – chicken salad – which is good but it’s time to kick things up a notch. Here are 27 paleo recipes for leftover chicken.
