This is another of my favorite ways of stretching one meal into two. Using leftover fried/baked chicken makes this dish extra tasty. It's a family favorite. My husband only likes dark meat, so when I bake/fry chicken, I purchase a family size pkg of drumsticks. There are usually 10-14 in a package for about $6.00 at my Kroger. We have a meal of fried chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, and I use the leftovers for noodles the next day. When I buy ready made chicken at the deli, I use the left over breasts. Either way, it turns out great.
