I have:

1 cup cold roast chook
2 bunches asparagus
Creme fraiche

Plus other staples etc

I really want to use the chicken and the asparagus.

My thoughts so far:
Chicken and asparagus risotto
Chicken and asparagus frittata
Chicken and asparagus pasta

Any other inspired ideas??

I make chicken pie with left over chicken.

Fry leek or onion and bacon.  Fry a tablespoon of flour.  Add chicken stock gradually and let it thicken.  Add cream (but creme fraise would be awesome), dijon mustard and the chicken.  Put in a pie dish or something and sheet of puff pastry over the top.  Bake.

Would be delicious with steamed asparagus.

You could make savoury crepes. Just make a white sauce and add teh cooked chicken and other filling ingredients to it, roll up in crepes, add a bit more sauce and cheese on top and bake until bubbly.

I'd make pasta with everything you have except the salami. I actually make that dish regularly cause it's awesome. biggrin.gif
