she is a marvelous young chef with very doable vietnamese food. even if you don't try her recipes (some of the techniques are great to learn), it makes exploring vietnamese food in restaurants very easy.

I love to slow cook and shred similar to scruz. Along with soup, shredded chicken can be used to top anything from tacos to a big green salad. I often like to freeze small packets of shredded chicken when I have extra. These easily become chicken salad or a topper for lunches.

i would first make a broth with them. shred one leg for soup and add veggies/beans. with one or two legs, i would shred and make enchiladas. and shred one or two and add onions, swiss cheese, mayo and fill hollowed out steak rolls and bake until hot and crusty. without knowing how many you are serving at one meal, if you had one left over, you could make a graving and add diced carrot, celery onion, peas, potato and chicken for a stew.

You could go Asian and make Vietnamese Chicken Curry:

Here's something a little different. Substitute legs for the thighs with the same result
