To celebrate this week’s launch of Amanda and Merrill’s book, A New Way to Dinner, we’re diving into the archives to revisit times they ripped out a page from their dinner playbooks for us. Loved leftovers, brown bag lunches, and roast chicken awaits.
We all know roast chicken is the hero of weeknight dinners: Roast over the weekend, and eat your way through its parts every which way all week. Our co-founder Amanda sure has done this more than once.
If you're looking for a little inspiration to do the same, here are a handful of ways Amanda's turned chicken into her kids' brown bag lunches. Suppress your jealousy.
While these recipes use oven-fried chicken and chicken with charmoula, you could easily make them with your roast chicken.
Tell us: How do you turn roast chicken into lunch?
