Help me with my dried out chicken!

I made chicken breasts the other night. I knew they were extra well done when they came out of the oven, but now they are nearly petrified. There are 3 left. I really don't want to toss them. Anyway to rehydrate them??

I do some stupid things sometimes. No more multitasking with my cooking!

I’d probably shred the chicken meat and use it in either enchiladas or an Asian style chicken salad. Yum!

Casserole

Chicken Noodle Casserole

1 box bowtie pasta
1 ˝ T. each butter and flour
1 ˝ cups half and half
1 14 oz. can ready-to-serve chicken broth
2 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese cut into pieces
6 cups cooked, chopped chicken (I buy chicken that is already cooked and cut up.)
1 tsp. each salt and pepper
1 2 ˝ oz. can sliced ripe olives, drained (I do not use this.)
1 2 ˝ oz. can sliced mushrooms, drained (I use fresh…about 1˝ cups.)
1 2 oz. jar diced pimientos (I do not use this.)
2 T. dry bread crumbs (I use more than this. I like the top to be crunchy.)
vegetable cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Boil pasta and drain.
3. Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. (I use the same pan I used to boil the pasta.) Add flour and stir until smooth. Cook one minute, stirring constantly.
4. Gradually add half and half and broth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened (about five to ten minutes). Remove from heat.
5. Add cream cheese, stirring until melted.
6. Stir in chicken, salt, pepper, and mushrooms. If using the olive and pimientos, add these too. Add pasta.
7. Place in lightly sprayed 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish. Top with bread crumbs (I use more than asked for) and coat with cooking spray.
8. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes. Yield: 8 servings.
