I need some new ideas on what to do with a whole boiled chicken after tearing it apart to use bones for stock.  

Here's what I usually do:

 

chicken tacos

casserole with chicken,brown rice, leeks, mushrooms etc

chicken quesdillas

chicken salad 

 

That's it. I do this once a week so these meals are getting boring. What do you do with leftover chicken? Last week I ended up wasting a decent portion since it's just DD and I home for awhile.

some more ideas:
chicken paprikash
wraps with chicken and any combo of veggies
chicken enchiladas
mexican chicken tortilla soup
chicken curry
pesto pasta w chicken
spaghetti sauce w chicken over pasta
causa de pollo-- a peruvian dish where you layer mashed potatoes and chicken salad, served with rice
arroz con pollo- another peruvian dish where you use cilantro to flavor rice, with peas and carrots and chicken and chili thrown in.
chicken fried rice
chicken pot pie


eta: i just noticed you did a boiled chicken. i usually roast and then tear the meat off and then use the bones for stock. all these ideas should still work though.

Thanks ladies. Yes I roast sometimes but we usually finish most of the chicken that way although it maybe different now that DH isn't home!  thanks for the wonderful ideas. :)

I also add shredded chicken to pizza for my kiddos!  They love it!   It's really delish with almond crust pizza and a nice, savory sauce!
