A rotisserie chicken from your local supermarket or big box retailer is a fast and easy method to a good dinner when you’re too busy to cook. The chicken can be purchased ahead of time and reheated in the microwave. While I don’t really like the microwave for reheating meats because they can become dry during the reheating process, that isn’t so with the chicken. It comes out moist and delicious. Just be sure to heat it to an internal temperature of 165°. If the entire chicken is not eaten at one meal, the leftovers can be used in many ways.
The first night the chicken was served with a baked sweet potato and sauteed spinach. The sweet potato can be scrubbed, pricked with a knife, and simply baked for 1 hour at 400° or cooked in the microwave for faster preparation.
Tonight I will try spicy Chicken Tacos.
I still had chicken left after making tacos, so I’ll make Chicken Chile from the remaining meat and then use the carcass to make chicken broth. Imagine– four meals out of one $4.99 chicken. There were just two of us eating but it’s still amazing!!
