Rotisserie Chicken - Cheap & Versatile

Updated: Jan 25, 2020

Rotisserie chickens are cheap everyday (& bonus: on sale where I go on Saturdays). They are a great way to add protein to a meal for less than $1 per meal for any cuisine you like. Ballin’ on a budget. :)

When I buy a rotisserie chicken that I intend to use for multiple meals over a few days, as soon as I get home from the grocery store while it is still warm, I carve it up and take the meat off the bone. It is much easier to do this when it's still warm, then to do it the next day after it has been in the fridge. After a few days, I make chicken adobo (see post; link below) or chicken soup with the leftover meat that is still on the bone.

This is just a gallery of the different ways I use rotisserie chicken in meals to give you some ideas. Come back every once in awhile to see what new ideas I’ve come up with. :)

The pics may appear in other posts; you can check out those posts too. :)

BBQ Chicken (Rotisserie chicken) w/ cheddar and spinach

Rotisserie Chicken Fajita

I just added a little bit of Old El Paso taco seasoning. I also describe this a little bit more in the Bell Pepper & Onions in 5 recipes post.


Chicken Soup

I just put the whole leftover chicken (bones and all) in some water as I describe in my Easy Rotisserie Chicken Adobo post. Instead of adding Mama Sita's Adobo mix, I add in 3 bouillon cubes. I added some spinach in too.

The color of this chicken soup looks a little weird I admit. :) This was a BBQ rotisserie chicken, so the BBQ on the skin gave the soup a more brown color rather than normal yellowish chicken soup color. However, it still tasted like normal chicken soup; the bouillon beat out the BBQ flavoring. :)

This one was made with plain chicken. Looks like chicken soup. Like I said, the other one above tasted like normal chicken soup, just a different color. :) I snuck in some spinach.
