Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday! If you’re like me, you may have a huge ham bone and plenty of leftover ham.  I’m trying to decide what to make with it from this list of my favorite leftover ham recipes.  I’m leaning towards the Cheesy Ham and Broccoli Baked Potato and this Leftover Hambone Soup.

It was really hard to come up with a name for this dish. It’s obviously a stir-fry, but the sauce is kind of like sweet and sour sauce, but with a little chipotle spice to it. The cilantro and pineapple add a nice flavor combination as well.

Sometimes I feel like I need to hire someone just to come up with recipe names for me :-). It’s like when I was involved in journalism and I never had a problem writing my articles, but I could never come up with a decent headline. Oh well…”Sweet and Spicy Chipotle Chicken Stir-Fry” it is!  Hope you love it!
