Fresh Chicken Sandwich


Make a simple fresh sliced chicken sandwich with the chicken, add mayo and lettuce – add some bacon for extra yum and crunch!

Chicken Pasta

Toss diced rotisserie chicken to your favorite pasta dish – from primavera to marinara, rotisserie chicken goes well with all of it!

Chicken Stir Fry

Stir fry diced rotisserie chicken with fresh or frozen vegetables and serve it over rice for a quick and healthy dinner. Or add it to the frozen Costco Yakisoba noodles.

Chicken & Cheese Omelet

Combine the meat with some cheese and make an omelet for breakfast – top with avocado or fresh sliced tomato.

Chicken Soup

Add it to your favorite soup for extra flavor and protein. Or make soup by adding broth, vegetables, spices, and leftover. rotisserie chicken

Chicken Salad

Chop up the meat into small pieces and add them to any of the premade bagged salads as a topping.

Chicken Quesadillas

Make chicken quesadillas (use egg wraps for a keto-friendly low carb option). For picky kids, cut the chicken up eeeeeeextra tiny.

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Make some chicken salad and eat in lettuce wraps for a low carb but delicious lunch (or use egg wraps).

Greek Pasta Salad

Toss together a quick Greek pasta salad with cold pasta, rotisserie chicken, diced cucumber, tomatoes, olives, and feta cheese and dress with italian dressing. This is a hit at pot luck parties and bbqs. Swap sun dried tomatoes for a little extra flavor!

Chicken Enchiladas

Mix shredded chicken up with black beans and corn and roll up in tortillas, top with your favorite enchilada sauce and cheese and bake – again you can roll it up in egg wraps for a low carb version. I like to serve mine with sour cream.

Chicken Tacos

Use shredded rotisserie chicken instead of ground beef in tacos or burritos for a chicken Taco Tuesday. Make sure you grab tortillas, guacamole, salsa and sour cream!

Chicken Fried Rice

Saute diced Costco rotisserie chicken with diced carrots and onion, (generous) butter and garlic….add finely diced scrambled eggs, rice, and soy sauce for an easy homemade chicken fried rice. Our little Benihana fans love this one for dinner! And it has the meat, veggies and rice all in one (plus the egg boosts the protein even more!).

BBQ Chicken Sliders

Shred the rotisserie chicken and simmer or slow cook for in bbq sauce. Serve on a Hawaiian roll and top with (or serve on side) a slaw salad for easy BBQ chicken sliders. Goes great with corn on the cob or potato salad!
