Tuscan Chicken Cakes

I found this recipe for leftover roast chicken and adapted it slightly as I didn’t have all the ingredients the recipe called for.

The pesto and sun dried tomatoes were omitted.  I miss pesto and sun dried tomatoes…  When we move I might use eat pasta with pesto and sundried tomatoes for a week straight.

And I used white instead of red onions, but it still turned out really well.  And I might have made one without onion for Bob, which he might have eaten in under three seconds. 🙂  Not that he has special food made for him, definitely not…

It was definitely a more original way of using the left over chicken than just reheating it which is what I might have done otherwise.
