  • Kevin!! I’m so ready for this book!!! And btw I needed this video earlier today. I turned my struggle chicken into chicken salad!

  • Not gonna lie. This video is some clickbaity and fear mongering bs. I love infographics. Please dont continue this approach with your videos or I will unsub

  • Seriously, this episode is misleading and supports the food wasting trend. I would recommend to reheat leftovers and eat them only if they are max 1d old.

  • You want some actually useful information? The FDA recommends you don’t leave any cooked food out at room temperature for longer than 2 hours.

    Follow the 2 hour rule and you’ll be fine.

  • I definitely am trying the last 2 recipes. Sadly I don’t eat dairy. But omg the last 2 look amazing! Might need to meal prep that PB chicken. Thinking brown rice and what kind of veggies?

  • Kevin!! I’m so ready for this book!!! And btw I needed this video earlier today. I turned my struggle chicken into chicken salad!

  • You are very interesting and non-boring. You enlighten the mindset to understand with the ease of common sense, logic, and respect. Enjoying. Even the order ones.

  • I can’t get over the quality of your vids man. Once I’m out of school for summer I’m going to try and take my time and make a good reddit post for your channel and hopefully it catches fire on r/fitness.

  • Most if not all these recipes are stolen from so many other compilation recipe videos involving chicken here on YouTube. Then you don’t even try to make them look good because they all ended up looking like fucking trash. Honestly you can keep every single one of these and if you are a person who likes any of these you have zero taste buds and shouldn’t have an opinion. I made every single one exactly how you put the recipes. And omg I waisted close to $75 bucks on all ingredients and every recipe ended up in the trash after a taste test. I’m also a classically trained chef who used to work in Michelin star restaurants. ����������������������

  • Would love the time marker added to the description when each recipe section starts. Makes it easier to skip around in the video posted.:)

  • I tried two recipes so far: the avocado chicken salad and the chicken lasagna. I must say my favorite is the lasagna! The avocado chicken salad was delicious and helped out for a quick lunch for work and without having to heat it up. But I am incorporating the lasagna as a routine meal. Truth is I made chicken just to make this recipe! My only thing is after it baked, the zucchini was still on the tough side. I prepped it just like you did and cooked it for the same amount of time. Was it suppose to come out like that? I would have preferred it to be a little bit more soft. Anyway, thanks for the awesome recipes! It was great (not that I would expect less from you)!!! Keep it up!!

  • Congratulations on the new book.  I can’t wait to see it.  Though….  I just threw out a moldy eggplant right before I watched this video and immediately felt guilty about it when I you mentioned food waste.  I hate food waste as well:-(

  • These days my only options for lunch are A nothing B skip breakfast and eat sausage biscuits that bottom buns have too much flour or C leftovers so I guess I’m gonna die

  • Yesss this is but I’ve been waiting for! I hate struggle chicken! Totally agree struggle chicken makes me want to quit this healthy lifestyle!

  • such a clickbaity title. if you have a smidge of common sense you will be fine. ive eaten leftovers my whole life, im still alive. even leftovers over 4 days! food can stay out for up to 4 hours at room temperature. go take a food safety course, believe me, this video is just plain ridiculous. sure, be cautious, but you don’t have to worry about dying. and potatoes arent vegetables, per se. they are tubers. and are delicious. and yes, ive reheated and eaten leftover potatoes as well, and guess what? still alive, not sick.

  • Did you know if you eat leftovers YOU COULD DIE!!! Well he is not lying because my grandma ate a lot of leftovers her whole life and she died at the age of 93.

  • Love your personality.  You get me excited to cook healthy in the kitchen.  I think my favorite part though is when you say “boom” when you finish the meal.  I laugh every time.

  • I make Brisket Tacos, Burritos, Flautas ( Taquitos), Shepherds Pie, beef ( brown ) gravy and rice, red whine vegetables and Leftover Brisket, you can use it for almost any meals that use a beef or even pork

  • Struggle Chicken, or not…you can never have too many recipes/ideas for Leftover Chicken (the end of The Bird, amen)…these ideas are great…Boom!

  • I luv these recipes, but haven’t had struggle chicken ever since your video showing how to make chicken bomb! lemon juice during the sear process changed the game

  • DO NOT EAT!!!! We are close people they will be ANGRY! Its not the leftovers its the FOOD. Food is not naturally needed by humans.

  • I like to take my leftover chicken
    Dice it up (1/2″ cubes)
    Sautée over olive oil
    Season with garlic powder, black pepper and adobo
    Add kibble to taste
    Plate up, serve to my dog
    Grab keys
    Buy McDonalds
    Optional: ketchup
    And BOOM it’s that easy. I always look forward to my leftover chicken. You’re welcome.

  • I’m so glad you didn’t put a full bag of cheddar cheese in your recipes �� most leftover chicken videos I’ve watched use a hell ton of cheese and I’m not a big fan of cheese tbh… All your recipes look so good and tasty, I’ll make the Chicken Avocado Salad one since I love avocados, I’ll let you know how it went ��

  • Begs the question how did our ancestors eat rancid meat days old meat rotten veggies and fruits like we would cease to exist if it was seriously dangerous

  • According to this video I am very dead at this point.. worst part is I didn’t even realize I died! Thank you for making me aware of my condition.

  • If I have leftovers at luch it is my dinner that same day and if my leftovers are dinner and depending on how much is leftover it is tomorrow’s lunch and sometimes both my lunch and dinner for the next day

  • Earth day is my birthday so extra BOOM ����. Made a killer chicken tortilla soup this weekend with leftover chicken. Kept it gluten-free with blue corn tortilla chips.

  • Absolutely love your videos Kevin! You have such an awesome personality! And I think its great that you’re trying to share ways to reduce food waste, which is one of the worst sources of wastage but barely talked about. Please keep up the awesome work:D

  • me encantas. hablas español de donde eres? soy nueva por aquí pero ya he visto gran parte de los vídeos y waw me encantan gracias por tus recetas.

  • Hope all of you are doing well in this time of confinement. I was searching for a recipe to use leftover steak. I found three!! Think I’ll make the Stroganoff for three people. I’ve never put horseradish or dill in my Stroganoff. Wondering if I could use fresh horseradish. Can’t wait. Thanks!!

  • i normally love the videos you folks make but this is one time where i have to call BS!!!!! we have been preserving and eating “leftovers” for centuries. so if it really was THAT bad, i honestly don’t think our parents/grandparents would have done it, sheesh

  • congratulations on your book deal, can’t wait to get a copy..I’m trying to come up with my own healthy meal prep ideas. BTW great video!

  • Very clever, Ethan! Where did you get the orechiette, van Gogh? Personally I don’t mind the sound of someone enjoying their food. Which reminds me, I gotta make more ramen…

  • came here to figure out what to do with the 2 rotisserie chickens I bought and hardly anyone touched…now I’m starving just ripping off pieces and eating it

  • “If you eat leftovers you will die!” Thanks The Infographics Show thats all i needed to watch, now i can move onto more positive videos.

  • Bro I just found your account on tik tok and your food looks so fucking good and the way you present it and explain everything makes it easy to follow and makes me want to learn how to cook like this. you got a fan for life here.

  • Uh first, I wash my hands before and after my meal, 20-30and I count. And now I’m even more strict about it since this pandemic hit. Furthermore, leftovers are safe, i usually make new dishes with them. Like fried rice, or by using certain foods like ham or bacon to flavor greens., or pinto beans. As far as fish goes, fresh fish should never smell off, it smells wet, slightly sweet, some even have a smell of the ocean, and should have clear translucent eyes. Anything beyond that such as cloudy eyes a fishy smell, or an off smell your fish ain’t fresh dear.
