When Jernej made this recipe a couple of days ago, my reaction was,” oh my God, we need to post this on the blog; it’s so good!”. When he first made it, he used leftover roast chicken, so you can go ahead and use that too. However, he cut thin strips out of the skinless and boneless chicken breast in this recipe. Both work great. This super straightforward recipe is perfect for Sunday dinner or a quick midweek meal when you’re in a hurry. Serve it with mashed potatoes, pasta, rice, or gnocchi.
