3 leftover ingredients to make a whole new dish!

I had some leftover roast chicken. And some leftover onion. And some leftover bacon. And I was craving cheese.

So this is what I did. And what I will do again and again and again!


  • bacon
  • onion
  • pistachios
  • gouda cheese
  • leftover chicken breast
  • dijon mustard
  • cherry or “datterini” tomatoes
  • white wine

Chop up the bacon, onion and pistachios and start sizzling them. They’ll cook with the melting bacon fat so no extra grease is needed.

Once cooked, add a tiny bit of white wine to deepen the flavours and when that has evaporated add the tomatoes, searing them on both sides for about 1 minute or less

Now add the chicken and a little bit of water if you think it’s too dry. Warm the chicken on both sides, about 1-3 minutes each side (depending on how thick your slice is)…

…and when it’s nice and warm, add the slices of cheese and cover the pan so the heat distributes evenly and the cheese melts!

Done! Eat it before the cheese becomes solid again and enjoy 🙂

Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
