Notes

Note 1: If you have any roasted meat leftovers from the holiday table even better. Cut that meat in stripes, use some meat sauce from the bottom of the pan, then toss in the rest of the ingredients as per recipe instructions.
Note 2: If you don't have fresh chestnuts or they out of season you can use store bought roasted & peeled chestnuts instead. Steep them in hot water before use if you like a softer, like freshly boiled chestnuts bite.
