OK, so I don't know what to call this addictive "yum". But I DO know that this happy leftover accident deserves a place all it's own on the recipe site.

So I made my Sweet and Saucy Chicken (also posted here on JAP)..and I noted that next time I would reserve some of the sauce for serving because it gets so thin during cooking.

FORGET THAT..I'm gonna make EXTRA sauce for serving because from now on that encridible sauce cooked w/the chicken is going into a sauce pan the next day with the leftover deboned chicken and some pasta!

leftover cooking liquid from "sweet and saucy chicken" recipe
chicken deboned (also leftover from the above recipe)
pasta of choice--i like twisty macaroni for this
a little flour for thickening if you choose

Directions Step-By-Step

debone the chicken from last nights dinner :-)
put ALL the cooking liquid from last nights "Sweet and Saucy Chicken" into a saucepan and heat.

I thicken it a bit using flour (and just a squeeze of ketchup)
add the chicken to the sauce

then add cooked pasta and ENJOY!
I admit to a shortcut...I put my macaroni in a bowl, covered with water and microwaved for 5 min.
let it sit a min. then pour the whole thing into the pan..water and all. There just wasn't enough sauce left to cook up a whole box on the stove! lol
