A dinner savior.  Impossible to mess up.  Endlessly customizable.

You’re grocery store likely sells the item that embodies all of those things.  A simple, delicious rotisserie chicken can turn dinner around.  It can serve as a jumping off point for some of your favorite recipes.  Hey, at the very least it cuts down your time in the kitchen without sacrificing taste.

Rotisserie chicken is one of my favorite ingredients.  The comforting smell wafting from the grocery bag not only brings the cat running from whatever blanket fort he’s built for himself, but it promises a tasty meal is heading your way.

Don’t believe me?  Ahem…

6. Honey Lime and Cilantro Chicken Enchiladas.  Creamy, spicy, herbaceous, sweet.  I like all of those words, and with rotisserie chicken, this dish is even easier to make.

7. Barbecue Chicken French Bread Pizza.  Buy the chicken, buy the bread, chop a few veggies, and you’ve got a fun, care-free dinner.

8. Classic Chicken Soup (with homemade stock!)  Use the chicken for the soup, use the bones for the stock!  This recipe uses all parts of chicken and it’s perfect for days when you’re feeling under the weather.

 

You can absolutely roast your own chicken.  We know that.  But there’s no shame in letting the grocery store do the hard work while you get a beautiful, healthy dinner on the table.
