Leftover BBQ Chicken Nachos with Roasted Tomatoes
A few weeks ago, the sun came out in Manchester and the temperature rose to the high 70s for a few days. Like always, everybody grabbed picnic baskets and sunglasses and flocked to the park for lazy afternoons in the sun. We were right there with them, with a picnic and blanket. Instead of making the usual, boring sandwiches, we opted for picking up assorted rotisserie and barbecue chicken from the deli counter. After our day in the sun, I wasn't in the mood to cook and didn't want to throw out the leftover chicken. As a result, these delicious nachos were born.



Leftover Barbecue Chicken Nachos with Roasted Tomatoes

 Ingredients: 

For the nachos
1 ripe avocado
1 punnet cherry tomatoes
1 ball of mozzarella, pulled into chunks
A handful of BBQ chicken wings
Gluten free nacho chips
Olive oil
Sea salt
Lemon juice
Sour cream


Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F.
2. Wash and dry tomatoes before tossing them in olive oil and sea salt and arranging them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
3. Roast for 45 minutes until starting to char.
4. Meanwhile, remove chicken meat from bones, cut into chunks and set aside.
5. In a large bowl, combine avocado and mozzarella, squirt with lemon juice and sprinkle with salt. Leave in fridge until needed.
6. Remove tomatoes and toss them into the bowl with the avocado and cheese. Mash together, but not too much that they lose their shape completely.
7. Layer the nachos on another a baking tray with the chips, some of the avocado mix and more chips et cetera.
8. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese starts melting.
9. Drizzle with sour cream and serve warm.

  1. I'm officially in love with these!! I will probably add Ranch dressing instead of sour cream because I'm a Southerner and we think everything is better with Ranch! :) Great recipe!

    1. Hahaha! :) I'm a good ol' southern girl myself (raised in Fayetteville NC) & I agree! If I were making these in the states, that would DEFINITELY be ranch dressing! IT's hard to come by authentic ranch here in the UK, thought! :(

  6. Thanks for reminding me to revisit baking tortilla chips. Now, since you're on the topic of leftovers, do you have anymore that's left over for me? I will pay for shipping and handling, so just saran wrap me a plate and place it in the correct sized box and label it 'fragile, handle with care.' I inboxed you my addy :)
