I love to prepare and eat food and dread washing dishes, but don’t we all? I remember when I was growing up, my dad did not believe in having house helps, because having them do all the work will make us become “brats” and lazy, so he made us do literary everything and I hated WORK until my late teens. We are four kids -I included. We used to pair ourselves in two so it could be much easier knowing which “team” is cooking and cleaning on a certain day. Sometimes I would “fall sick”in pretense just to evade the dishes. I hated washing dishes, and still do – especially when water is scarce, but somebody’s got to do it. What am trying to put across is the idea of cooking everything in one pot is just one of the perfect ideas EVER.

Not sure what to do with left over chicken {Any other meat dish}?

How about a  One Pot Dish?

In a Saucepan /Sufuria, saute the onions and garlic till translucent – season with salt just to help the sweat a little. Add in the chopped left over chicken to warm them up for 2 mins or so.
