Probably just like you, we had our share of leftover BBQ* fare after our 4th of July cookout. And just like most, we partook in a ceremonious devouring of our BBQ leftovers the very next day. However, we still had a little to spare after a second round. So on Monday, the 6th of July, I took a peek in the refrigerator found the leftovers and made a lunch that was fit for a king.
Here’s what you’ll need to eat like a king:
1.) One piece of leftover boneless grilled chicken breast
2.) A nice chunky slice of Spanish Manchego Cheese
3.) A little Dijon mustard
4.) 1 potato hamburger bun or Kaiser roll
5.) A great leftover macaroni salad
6.) A thick sliced piece of ham. Like a ham steak.
7.) A sprig of fresh Dill
Place the leftover piece of boneless grilled chicken breast onto a microwaveable plate and put the slice of Manchego cheese on top of the chicken. Place in microwave and cook for about 40 seconds or until the cheese is just a little melted over the chicken.
Grab your roll and spread some Dijon mustard on it. Place chicken onto bun. A nice bit of “souped up” macaroni salad makes a nice side. Chop up a small thick slice of ham and throw into the macaroni salad. Top the macaroni salad with some sprigs of fresh dill. That’s it!
Bring this easy lunch meal altogether with a glass of Rosé from the south of France, like the Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rosé which costs less than $15.00 a bottle. If you’re looking for a terrific value Rosé off the beaten trail for under $10, try the Goats Do Roam Rosé from South Africa which is equally as tasty!
*A word on BBQ sauce: The world’s most kickin’ BBQ sauce is the Stubb’s Moppin’ Sauce. My chicken breast couldn’t ask for a better sauce.
Enjoy your lunch!
