Re-cook grilled chicken?
« on: December 30, 2011, 03:30:40 PM »
Recently I was given several grilled chicken leg quarters that are not cooked all the way through. What would be the best way to re-cook these so that they get done properly?

I like to throw leftover soup in soups and casseroles. Many of them call for cooked chicken anyway; just add a couple of minutes to the cooking time. Then save the bones in the freezer for broth.


I have a blog.  I hate that word.

If you are shredding them, toss them (deboned) into a pan with water, and let it simmer; shred once they are ready to be shredded! Good for tacos....yum

Thanks for the suggestions! I removed the skin and shredded them for cheesy chicken and rice casserole. And yes, I always save the bones for broth. :)

On a food safety note please do be careful when recooking.  A long simmer in a soup or broth, or a long bake in a casserole would be needed to completely eliminate any possible contamination concerns.
