recipe ideas for rotisserie chicken

Sometimes we all need a shortcut and normally rotisserie chickens are a great way to save a few steps in the kitchen. This week we are seeing Rotisserie Chickens on sale at lots of stores, so thought it’s be fun to share some favorite recipe ideas for rotisserie chicken.

Most of the time rotisserie chickens cost almost what you’d pay for a whole chicken at the meat counter, so although it’s a big time saver, it’s not usually a huge budget buster!

Save any parts you won’t eat (bones, skin etc.) and make the best homemade chicken stock of your life.

    • Chef Di

      Great recipes! My favorite is my Three Cheese Chicken and Spinach Stuffed Shells… total comfort food! Thanks for these great recipe ideas.

    • Janice

      I always make chicken salad- I discovered a few years ago that it was actually cheaper than boiling chicken breasts- and I get those great bones for broth.

    • Dee

      I make chicken salad sandwiches..my husband loves it. And, so to the ladies at church!

    • Toni

      Chicken Salad
      meat from one rotisserie chicken, chopped into 1/2 to one-inch pieces
      large package of grapes, rinsed and each grape cut in half (I sometimes use half green grapes and half red grapes)
      Dressisng:
      3/4 c mayo
      1 tsp. onion powder
      1 Tbs. or more, according to taste, of Bragg’s liquid amino acids
      1/2 tsp. fresh ginger ground up in food processor or chopped very finely (or to taste)
      1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice, or to taste
      1 tsp. lemon zest (optional)
      6 slices crispy bacon, crumbled (optional)
      3 Tbs. dried parsley flakes
      Keep salad chilled until serving

      • Toni

        Correction: Use up to 1/2 tsp ground ginger or else up to one tsp fresh, although I like to use a lot of ginger, so sometimes I use a bit more than even this.

    • Chicken is always a winner in my house, no matter how its made or how you use it but chicken salad stays a favorite…

    • ShelMc

      Chicken Lo Mein- Whatever bits and pieces you have left, give a quick stir fry with some frozen chinese vegetables (make a bit of quick sauce with sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and maybe a bit of corn starch if it needs to thicken). Stir in cooked linguine at the last minute and give it a toss to coat. That’s usually what we do with the remainders for the third meal ;-)

    • Pat Morgan

      I will just serve the rotisserrie chicken as is with oven roasted broccoli and oven baked sweet potato fries. Just a great & healthy meal!

    • Chrissy

      I am NOT a creative cooker so i appreciate these ideas.

    • shiper9w

      I will serve it with Black eyed peas and potatoes.

    • Mimi

      Love this deal! Can’t wait to get my chicken for dinner tonight!

    • Karen

      I am going to make chicken salad for my brown bag lunches this week.

    • Aaron Reck

      Chicken salad is so very good. I love it. Yummy with yellow mustard.

    • Paol Trenny

      I would make chicken fried rice.
