Cook the Book: Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Roast Chicken, Shredded Brussels Sprouts, and Parmesan
Another ingenious leftover chicken recipe from Mindy Fox's A Bird in the Oven and Then Some, this Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Roast Chicken, Shredded Brussels Sprouts, and Parmesan is a perfect farewell to brussels sprouts season. Thinly shredded and sautéed with a butter and olive oil, the brussels sprouts are mixed with shredded chicken, golden fried slices of garlic, and loads of grated Parmesan.
Even minus the pasta, the chicken-brussels sprout mixture makes for a meal. You could make an awesome hash by adding a few cubed and browned potatoes. But with pasta—especially the nutty whole wheat variety called for in the recipe—the sprouts and chicken make a wonderful dish. Just drizzle with a bit more olive oil and add another healthy handful of Parmesan, and you get a gorgeous plate of pasta that's wholesome—even healthy—and totally delicious.
As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of A Bird in the Oven and Then Some to give away this week.
