I am a huge fan of rotisserie chicken. It is a great way to feed the entire family and one of the only things that my kids can unanimously agree that they all will eat. We love to grab a chicken or two and pull the meat then eat the chicken with a couple of sides the first day, and give the leftovers a makeover to keep using the chicken to make dinner prep quick and easy throughout the week.
There are all sorts of recipes that you can make with rotisserie chicken from tacos, to topping fettuccine alfredo or other pasta dishes, to baked sub sandwiches. The options for rotisserie chicken recipes are really endless!
