|Here's one of those recipes you may say to yourself, why didn't I think of this before?|
Leftover chicken, leftover mashed potatoes, a match made in heaven. Add some hot sauce, spices and roll into bread crumbs, drizzle some olive oil over the top bake until browned, can't get much easier. This is my first debut of all water marked photo's due to the thieves I have caught this week, to read more about that click here. It takes up much more time but worth it. I still have so many in Que I won't be able to do, hopefully they won't steal them! Scroll down for the recipe.
