I’ve been sharing my love for Rotisserie Chicken with you in the past few weeks…it is my favorite meal planning secret weapon! Now, I’ve rounded up some delicious and easy leftover rotisserie chicken recipes that you and your family will love.
Be sure to start with my 5 Tips for Rotisserie Chicken Freezer Meal Prep to see how I most efficiently stock my freezer with leftover rotisserie chicken, and then how I use the carcass to make the most delicious Crock Pot Rotisserie Crock Pot Chicken Stock! Sometimes, instead of using rotisserie chicken (which is yummier but a little bit more time consuming to pull off the bone and shred), I’ll load up my crock pot with chicken breasts and cook them on low for 6 hours with a little bit of broth and seasoning. Then I put the cooked chicken breasts in my KitchenAid to shred. Presto, shredded chicken!
There are SO many recipes that you can make with leftover shredded chicken, so having it on hand in your freezer makes weeknight meals quick and easy. Last week I rounded up 15 Soups to Make with Leftover Rotisserie Chicken, and today I’ve put together a collection of casseroles and other one-dish meals you can make with leftover rotisserie chicken. Some of them are written to be used with cooked shredded chicken, and some of them have cooking the chicken written into the recipe – in that case, just substitute your leftover rotisserie chicken into the recipe where it makes sense and rejoice at all the time you’re saving! Plus, one dish means all you have to do is serve it up alongside a green salad, maybe with some bread or garlic toast, and you’ve got a full meal. That’s a win all around in my book! I hope you enjoy these delicious one-dish dinners to make with leftover rotisserie chicken.
