Are you wondering what to do with rotisserie chicken leftovers? I got you. Here are a few delicious and healthy recipes that require little effort because the hard part is already done (cooking the chicken).
Healthy Recipes Using Rotisserie Chicken Leftovers
If you’re looking for easy recipes for your meal prep for the week, this list of healthy recipes using leftovers from a cooked rotisserie chicken (you can grab one for very little cost at the deli section in your grocery store).
What’s not mentioned in this round up of recipes is that when you’re done picking away at the chicken, remember to boil the bones for a delicious chicken bone broth. Here’s how.
I also took that bone broth and a rotisserie chicken and made this chicken zoodle soup.
