If your family likes Asian flavors, pick the bird down and mix the chicken with a box of stir-fry rice. Add a clove of garlic, some diced scallion sautéed with nuts like almonds and dried fruit. Traditional fried rice uses a bit of scrambled egg stirred in for a satisfying one dish meal.
How about swapping ground beef in chili for the dark meat of the rotisserie chicken? A can of beans, tomato sauce combined with sautéed onion and peppers with thigh and leg meat makes a wonderfully filling combination.
How about a bit of Mexican flavor with Tortilla Soup? It can be yours in about 10 minutes by adding rotisserie chicken slices to 32 ounces boiling chicken broth with a small box of frozen corn kernels, a couple cups of fresh spinach, one half jar of salsa and a squeeze of lime if you have it. Serve immediately after crunching up a handful of tortilla chips over each bowl.
While we know a sandwich is an easy choice, gourmet it up a bit by stuffing a whole wheat pita slathered in hummus, with chicken, Kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes ( from an oil packed jar), and a bit of fresh spinach or Arugula .
On a financial note, the average price of the rotisserie chickens we purchased were about $8 and made three meals, which is pretty nice cost wise.
