Directions

  1. FIRST MEAL.
  2. Marinate meats with soy sauce for 8 hours.
  3. Remove chicken to a 13x9 pan.
  4. Pour soy sauce from pan, dressing and mustard into a small bowl, stir until smooth; pour over chicken in pan.
  5. Put chicken into cold oven, bake at 350 for about 1 hour (juices run clear).
  6. When cooked to perfection, set aside three or four pieces of meat for the second meal.
  7. Eat the rest of the chicken, save any "leftover" sauce or chicken for the second meal.
  8. SECOND MEAL.
  9. While the chicken from the first meal is still warm, pick meat from bones in bite-size chunks; set aside.
  10. Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain, rinse & keep warm; set aside.
  11. In a hot pan, melt butter, then saute prepared veggies until tender-crisp (NOT droopy--the broccoli should be bright green).
  12. Add reserved soy sauce mixture from First Meal, chicken chunks and prepared pasta.
  13. Heat through, toss to combine.
  14. Serve and enjoy!
  15. CHEF'S NOTE: I use 10 pieces of chicken for my family size. Add or subtract according to your family-size needs. The amount of sauce is gauged to 10 servings, so adjust accordingly.
