Rotisserie Chicken Meal Ideas – Bite Me!

Nothing combines easy and delicious as well as a rotisserie chicken. For just a few dollars, you can have a healthy protein source available at any time. The one downside to a rotisserie chicken, however, is how boring it can become. But, with just a little bit of creativity, you can create an amazing meal with very little time, and only a few ingredients. This week for Bite Me! we’ve created three options to spruce up your next rotisserie chicken.

Option 1: Shredded Rotisserie Chicken Tacos

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken meat
  • 1 16 ounce jar of your favorite, cheap salsa
  • 1 Small Red Onion, diced
  • 2 Jalapeño Peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 4 Corn Tortillas
  • Cilantro, fresh lime, and onion, for serving.

Steps:

  • In a large skillet, heat the oil until it starts to shimmer, and then sauté the red onion and jalapeños until they turn translucent.
  • Add the chicken meat, and pour over the jar of salsa. Stir a few times to combine, and then allow to simmer. Continue letting the mixture cook until the salsa has reduced and coated the chicken.
  • In another skillet, heat the tortillas until they char slightly on each side, roughly two minutes per tortilla.
  • To serve, place the warm tortillas alongside the chicken and the toppings, and dig in!

Option 2: Greek Yogurt Rotisserie Chicken Salad Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken meat
  • 1/2 Cup 2% Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Medium Avocado, diced
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 Squeeze of Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 4 Slices of your favorite whole grain bread
  • Romaine Lettuce and Tomato for serving

Steps:

  • In a bowl, mash the avocado together with the Greek yogurt, and then stir in all of the spices, and the lemon juice.
  • Fold in the rotisserie chicken, and set in the refrigerator to chill.
  • Toast the bread, top with 1/2 of the chicken salad mixture, and finish with lettuce and tomato to serve.

Option 3: Asian Rotisserie Chicken Stir Fry

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken meat
  • 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Red Chili Flake
  • 1/2 tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. Cardamom
  • 1 tsp. Corn Starch
  • 1 Clove of Garlic, minced
  • 1 Medium Onion, sliced thinly into half moons
  • 1/2 Pound Carrots, thinly sliced into circles
  • 1 Cup Sugar Snap Peas
  • 1/2 Cup (uncooked) Jasmine Rice
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil

Steps:

  • Cook the rice, and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil, and add the onions and carrots. When the onions have turned translucent, add the sugar snap peas.
  • As the vegetables cook, mix the soy sauce with the spices, and whisk in the corn starch. Set aside.
  • Add the garlic and the chicken the pan, and stir to combine. Let the chicken start to brown, and then pour the sauce over the top. Allow the sauce to cook and thicken, and then remove from the heat.
