10 Easy Dishes You Can Make with Rotisserie Chicken
A rotisserie chicken is one of the best ways to make easy and delicious meals. It’s cooked and ready to go and we know they are delicious from the Safeway deli. Tender and moist, rotisserie chicken is the perfect cooked-for-you ingredient for a lot of fantastic meals. There are days when you just don’t have the time, the patience or the energy to make a complete meal, so a roasted chicken from the Safeway deli is the perfect solution. We get one at least twice a month and it pretty much gets devoured in one sitting, but sometimes I’ll be able to use it for other recipes as well.
Safeway has a great deal on their Signature Cafe rotisserie chickens this weekend with the 3 day sale – they are just $5.99 each. Let me share with you a few of my favorite meals you can make with a rotisserie chicken. I always save the carcass/bones and make a delicious bone broth with it.
Rotisserie Chicken Skillet
From afamilyfeast.com – This is a simple one-skillet meal! Lightly toasted orzo is cooked in chicken stock and seasonings. Then cooked carrots, onions, and frozen peas are added to the orzo along with some cream, the shredded rotisserie chicken and Parmesan cheese! Toss together – and dinner is ready in less than twenty minutes!
Chicken Broccoli Casserole
A classic recipe from Gotta Want Seconds that’s made even better by the use of a rotisserie chicken. Nothing goes to better than the creamy goodness of broccoli, chicken and cream of chicken soup. I make two and freeze one for later. A great potluck recipe too.
Better Than Takeout Chicken Fried Rice
This recipe for fried rice from The Recipe Critic is delicious. We love fried rice and the rotisserie chicken adds a fantastic flavor to this delicious recipe. One rotisserie chicken should more than supply the cooked chicken called for in the recipe. You could also add a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables for a complete meal.
Italian Chicken Salad
I love chicken salad of all kinds and this one has a nice Italian twist from blogger Salu Salo. Serve on Italian bread or sub rolls or enjoy on a bed of lettuce.
Chicken & Cream Cheese Taquitos
Tingle your taste buds with this crunchy and creamy taquitos recipe from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice. You are going to love these. Cream cheese makes everything delicious and these are proof. They also freeze really well!
Skillet White Chicken Chili Dip
Game night, family night or late night snacking. Whatever you are planning, this Skillet White Chicken Chili Dip from Heart Beet Kitchen is a scrumptious appetizer. Canned white beans combined with a rotisserie chicken make this dish a snap to pull together.
Easy Chicken Lasagna
Try this unique twist on a traditional Italian dish. A nice chicken lasagna from FoodLovingFamily is perfect dish for an easy Sunday family meal. Serve with Italian bread and a green salad.
Thai Chicken Noodle Salad
A simple delicious recipe for Thai Chicken Noodle Salad with Peanut Sauce, loaded up with healthy veggies and chicken. This make-ahead salad is perfect for weeknight dinners, midweek lunches or entertaining a large party.
Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup
The recipe I make most often with left over rotisserie chicken is a classic chicken noodle soup. I remove as much of the meat as I can and boil the chicken carcass with celery, onions and carrots for several hours, or I’ll put it into the slow cooker to make a delicious bone broth that I use to make my chicken noodle soup.
