A Skillet Dinner with More Oomph Than You'd Expect
This dish is a kind of American take on fried riceor, seen another way, a casserole that requires no oven preheating or half hour of baking time. It consists of rice, bacon, cheddar and the star ingredient: shredded roast chicken (it can be leftover from another meal, or a store-bought rotisserie bird). The meat helps add heft; and, if you shred it using two forks instead of your fingers, it'll stay fluffy (not chunky) and the entire dish will taste light yet still filling.
