Grilled chicken is a staple in the Gibson household. At least once a week we grill a few chicken breast and serve it up with some yummy steamed veggies. It’s an easy, healthy dinner. Recently we started purposely grilling a few extra pieces of chicken. We call them “plannedovers.” Here are three leftover grilled chicken dishes.
One of our favorite dishes with leftover grilled chicken is chicken salad sandwiches.
Mince about a ¼ cup of onion. Set aside.
Place your leftover chicken in a bowl. Use either a hand mixer or stand mixer to break up the chicken. Add your plain greek yogurt or mayonnaise. Mix on low.
Add about a teaspoon of fresh or dried dill and one teaspoon of mustard (you can add more if you like that extra tangy flavor). Add your minced onion and pecans. Salt and pepper to taste.
Toast your bread and voila you have a delicious chicken salad sandwich.

Grilled chicken also makes the perfect cold grilled chicken wrap for lunch. All you need in tortilla wraps, and your favorite wrap toppings. I like to add buffalo sauce and ranch! YUM!
Lastly, one of our favorite quick meals is a grilled chicken quesadilla. Get creative with your quesadillas. Feel free to use any remaining ingredients you might have in your fridge. Here are a few creative combinations we love:
