What to do with leftover roast chicken?

I have roast chicken and roast potatoes left over. Rather than just eating it the same way again is there anything I can do that's a bit different that will use them both?

    I have made chicken cakes much the same way you make fish cakes that is with bread crumbs and an egg and some seasoning and form them into round cakes about 3 inches thick and cooking with olive oil. You can make a potato salad from the potatoes.

    If it was a whole roast chicken you made, strip off all the meat and set aside, then simmer the bones to make chicken stock. Then you have some great choices:

    1. Chill or freeze the stock and chicken meat for future use

    2.Recipes could be chicken rissotto, curry ( Thai style coconut curry is lush), chicken soup ( add some veg, maybe noodles or rice)- either way you use the stock and the meat.

    3. I love chicken sandwiches with mayo, with sliced re-fried roast potatoes on the side!

    Remove skin and bones from chicken, wash the potatoes and put both in a food processor. Lightly whiz them to smaller, but not tiny chunks (aim for a quarter inch size). Make a dressing of mayonnaise, coarse mustard, pickle relish and onion. Serve as a lunch entre.

    Diced up together with some chopped herbs would be good in a 'Spanish' omelette / tortilla / frittata.

    You can make chicken salad, and smash up the potatoes and make fried potato patties?

    Make a curry. Chop up an onion and an apple and fry them gently, along with whatever spices you like, add in some apricot jam and/or chutney, and some chicken stock or water, let it all simmer for a while, then add the sliced leftover chicken and potato just to heat them through, and there you are. Cook some rice and a green veg to go with it.

    Dice them up and make a hash out of them. Surprisingly delicious.
