One of the advantages of using a slow cooker is that you can make a big batch of something and have leftovers. Instead of serving the exact same thing two days in a row, it’s easy to repurpose yesterday’s leftovers to make today’s new and exciting dinner recipe. Pasta dishes are great for repurposing chicken recipes. The next time you make Lemon Basil Chicken , try using leftovers to create one of the best chicken pasta recipes out there. This chicken broccoli pasta dish doesn’t recycle flavor, though; it tastes completely unique!
