Transform the classic roast chicken dinner into a full-of-flavour meal inspired by everyone’s favourite: the chicken Kiev. Enjoy our top leftover ideas to turn your leftovers into meals that will feed the family over a few days, with air-fryer and slow-cooker hacks and tips.

  1. Roast chicken Kiev

    Juicy and garlicky, we’ve taken the classic chicken Kiev and supersized it into a delicious roast chicken dinner. Coat your tender meat with a delicious garlic and lemon butter, then top with crispy herb breadcrumbs. This is sure to liven up your next Sunday dinner.

  2. ‘CLT’ pasta salad

    Inspired by everyone’s favourite sandwich filling, this pasta salad is a great low-cook lunch idea. Simply cook your pasta, then mix in your chicken with mayonnaise, wholegrain mustard, crispy lettuce and juicy tomatoes. Top with torn basil for a lunch that’s sure to keep you satisfied all afternoon.

  3. Coronation chicken stuffed potatoes

    Turn your leftover chicken into a comforting dinner for two. Cover the meat with curry-flavoured mayonnaise, mango chutney and raisins to make a homemade coronation chicken, then load onto fluffy jacket potatoes. We like ours served with a fresh salad and a scattering of toasted almond flakes.

    Tip: Try baking your potatoes in the air-fryer! Put the pricked potatoes into your fryer at 200˚C for 45 mins or until a knife pierces through easily, turning halfway through cooking.

  4. Garlic soup with homemade stock

    Ensure no part of the chicken is wasted! This rich and creamy garlic soup is made using a homemade stock from leftover chicken bones and vegetable peelings. Once your stock is ready, stir in crispy garlic, cream and parsley, then blitz until smooth. You’ll love this one.

    Tip: You can also make the stock in a slow-cooker: cook on low for 6-8 hrs.
