10 Ways to Get Clucking Creative with a Rotisserie Chicken

Tiny Tummy Tips, Issue #028 -- One Chicken, 10 Ways: The Rotisserie Revolution You Didn't Know You Needed!

In This Issue

1) 10 creative ways to mix up rotisserie chicken throughout the week
2) Requesting your input!

Here’s my secret rotisserie magic: How to turn one bird into 10 different meals. Simple, fast and easy. Eating rotisserie chicken all week long might sound more appealing if you get creative with it:

Cold Meals

1. Chicken salad: Shred the rotisserie chicken and mix with plain nonfat Greek yogurt (or a combo of yogurt + lite mayo), diced celery, and chopped green onions. Stir in some fresh dill and serve on a bed of greens or in a lettuce wrap.

2. Chicken Caesar salad: Top a bed of romaine lettuce with shredded rotisserie chicken breast, lite Caesar dressing, and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese for a classic salad.

3. Chicken and avocado salad: Toss shredded rotisserie chicken with diced avocado, cherry tomatoes, and a squeeze of lime for a light and refreshing meal. Serve as is, or serve atop a bed of greens.

4. Chicken and hummus lettuce wrap: Spread hummus on a large lettuce leaf (like a romaine leaf or a collard green leaf), add sliced rotisserie chicken breast, sliced cucumber, and shredded carrot. Roll up and enjoy!

5. Mexican chicken lettuce cups: Use lettuce leaves as cups, fill with shredded rotisserie chicken, rinsed and drained canned pinto beans, diced bell pepper, and a drizzle of hot sauce or salsa. Top with a spoon of plain nonfat Greek yogurt.

6. Chicken and black bean salad: Mix shredded rotisserie chicken with rinsed and drained canned black beans, diced tomato, and avocado. Squeeze lime on top. Eat as is or serve on a bed of greens or in a lettuce wrap.

Hot Meals

7. Chicken and vegetable soup: In a pot, combine sliced rotisserie chicken breast, diced carrot, celery, onion, and low-sodium chicken broth. Simmer until the veggies are tender.

8. Chicken and veggie stir-fry: Sauté sliced rotisserie chicken breast with your favorite veggies like bell peppers, onion, and broccoli, and season with low sodium soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, or coconut aminos. Serve with a side of cauliflower rice mixed with a small amount of diced pineapple.

9. Chicken fajita bowl: Top cooked cauliflower rice with sliced rotisserie chicken breast, sautéed bell peppers and onions, diced tomato, and a sprinkle of cilantro. Top with a sliver of avocado and a couple of spoons of your favorite salsa.

10. Chicken and broccoli casserole: Mix shredded rotisserie chicken with steamed broccoli, a can of lowfat, reduced sodium cream of mushroom soup, and sprinkle with reduced fat shredded cheese. Bake until bubbly and golden.

So go ahead now… don’t be chicken to mix it up ;)
