Bought a large roast chicken and there is plenty leftover?  What to do with it?

1 onion peeled and sliced in half and then into thin slices
The chicken taken off the bone and sliced into pieces
A little olive oil and spoon of butter to fry
Salt and black pepper
Half a tub of crème fraiche
3 tablespoons of green pesto sauce
A small glass of white wine and a splash or two of water

Fresh tagliatelle

Fry the onion in the olive oil and butter for about 5 minutes over a medium heat until golden and soft.  Add the cooked chicken, seasoning, crème fraiche, pesto sauce and stir thoroughly.  Add the white wine and a little water if the sauce is too thick.  Simmer for about 15 minutes to let the flavours combine.

Meanwhile fill a large pan with salted water for the tagliatelle....I add a little oil to the water and use fresh pasta, rather than dry, but it is a personal thing.  Cook according to the instructions on the packet and then drain.

The chicken carcass can be put in a pan with water, seasoning and herbs to make chicken stock.
