I've got some leftover roast chicken drumsticks after a big meal with my buddy. What I normally do with the leftover chicken is to tear out the meat and store in the fridge for making sandwich on the next day. Guess what!? The meat normally taste better than the day it's roasted. This time I choose tortilla bread to sandwich the chicken rather than using normal bread or French loaf. I make this wholemeal tortilla before but haven't got a chance to take any pictures. It's great that I can share something here this time. It's not 100% whole wheat tortillas but still consists 25% of wheat flour. Well, I think it's still have a bit of goodness there. Whole wheat tortilla is not very soft kind, but definitely edible when you think of its goodness. I try to roll it as thinner as I could then trim off the edges which was terribly rolled by my lousy skills.
Other than making sandwich, I like to use the leftover tortilla to make tortilla chips. Simply cut them into rectangular shapes then brush some olive oil and topped with some shredded cheddar cheese or Parmesan cheese, toast them in the oven until they become harden and crispy. Either eat straight as a snack or go with some dipping. I made some pesto to go with it, simple and nice!
