The next time you know you have a week coming up where you will have NO TIME or you want to get a head start on having some meals on hand in literally less than 30 minutes for more than 5 meals…look NO further than the rotisserie chicken! For only $4.99 for a whole chicken at Costco, you get a ton of chicken meat and can make several meals out of them. I made 5 HUGE meals with enough for leftovers without really cooking.
Think of all the possibilities that you can make with the breast, leg and thigh meat. You can eat it and reheat it as is or you can repurpose the meat into so many other meals.
The first step is to remove all of the meat from the bones and separate the white meat and the legs, thighs and wings. You can use the white meat for so many meals and you can also freeze it in ziploc bags for future recipe such as CHICKEN BROCCOLI SOUP or CHICKEN SALAD or CHICKEN PARMESEAN CASSEROLE.
So next time you are at Costco, don’t underestimate how far you can stretch rotisserie chicken and turn it into a few meals.
