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. 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.

  • 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
