Who doesn’t love a rotisserie chicken? It’s so easy to pick one up for a quick week night meal. Especially when you buy at the warehouse stores you can get these chickens for $5. They are big, juciy and delicious.
It really is a great buy! I picked one up at the store yesterday and it makes for a no fuss meal. There are so many things you can do with a rotisserie chicken. You can serve as your main protein for your dinner. Add a couple of sides or a salad and you have a complete meal in no time.
You may hear about rotisserie chickens being bad for you or unhealthy. I’m not saying it’s a perfectly healthy meal. Obviously the skin is high in fat and the chicken itself is rather high in sodium. I personally feel it’s ok in moderation just like anything. To keep it slightly healthier I just remove the chicken skin when I eat mine. This isn’t something I’d eat on the daily, but it’s a good go to and quick dinner option.
I use the rotisserie chicken for a lot of dishes as well. You can do so many other recipes with the chickens. I’ve made everything from chicken salad to chicken chili. Here are a few ideas of what you can do with your next rotisserie chicken. Look for recipes in the future for how I use my leftovers.
Buffalo chicken dip
Chicken soup (enchilada, chicken with rice, chicken noodle)
I’ll be back soon with some recipes for rotisserie chickens.
