Rotisserie Chicken

Always with the best of intentions, I will usually buy a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store when I shop over the weekend.  I have grand plans, sandwiches for me during the week, chicken quesadillas for the boys, or making use of it in tacos.

Sometimes the chicken gets used, sometimes it doesn't.  Here's a post from BuzzFeed with 32 ways to use that rotisserie chicken.  My favorite recipe of the lot is below.  Although Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Soup would be a really, really, close second.

Broccoli Chicken Mac and Cheese
(from Damn Delicious)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

  • 8 ounces pasta shells 
  • 3 cups broccoli florets 
  • 3/4 cup milk 
  • 1/4 cup julienned sun dried tomatoes 
  • 6 ounces Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedges 
  • 2 cups shredded chicken breast 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 

  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Add broccoli to the pot 3 minutes before pasta is cooked through; drain well. 
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Whisk in milk, sun dried tomatoes and cheese wedges, until smooth, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add pasta, broccoli and chicken and gently toss to combine.
  • Serve immediately.

If you cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker with oil and Lawry's seasoned salt on it, it tastes just like a rotisserie chicken. True fact.
