Easy Menu Ideas Using Rotisserie Chicken (or Leftover Chicken)

Recipes using rotisserie chicken

Some days you want that little bit of help with dinner. Buying a rotisserie chicken is the perfect answer.

When you get tired of chicken and potato wedges or macaroni salad, what do you do?

Well just have a look at all of these delicious easy menu ideas. You can have a different meal every night for days on end with these great chicken recipes, all of which start out with cooked chicken.

You will notice though that a few of the recipes say to cook the chicken, usually chicken breasts. Don’t let that stop you. With a cooked chicken you are already part way through the recipe.

You can be assured that for each of the recipes on this page, simply removing the meat, white and dark, from a cooked chicken, will work just fine. Or use leftover chicken from last night’s dinner.

Don’t feel like making all of the recipes listed? No problem, just have a look at the main course ideas that use rotisserie chicken. That’s all you need. Add a salad or side vegetable and you’re done!
