Meal Plan Monday #14 - Uses for Rotisserie Chicken

It occurred to me the other day, as I was bagging my groceries at the market, that I buy way too much food for someone who lives alone. Truth be told, I like to have a fully stocked pantry so that I can, at any time, make any type of dish that I want without having to run to the store for something. The downside is that my pantry and cabinets are bursting, and I can never find what I’m looking for anyway. 

This week, I challenged myself to buy only one thing, and that thing is a rotisserie chicken. From that one rotisserie chicken I plan on making the following dishes, in individual portions, or, if I must, portions for two (I’ll freeze one for later). So, if you’ve ever wondered what to do with a rotisserie chicken (other than just eating it), here are a number of taste-tempting ideas.

Wednesday - Crunchy Chicken Casserole, Roasted Carrots, Slaw

Thursday - Sushi Lunch Out with friends

Friday - Dinner Out with Friends (Aren’t I a popular girl?!)

Saturday - Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili, breadstick

Sunday - Sliced Chicken Sandwiches, Chips, Grape Salad

I love the idea of planning a meal out of what you already have - makes for much creativity! Now I'm off to peruse your recipes... said...

I think the fun of cooking is seeing what you can make with what you have on hand, and don't you think that's where casseroles soups and stews were born?? So clever to challenge yourself with a rotisserie chicken! I have a friend that used to only shop every 6 weeks {except for fresh produce} But then she'd have to dedicate a full day to shopping and a full day to organizing! I do try to plan 4-5 days in advance so I'm not wasting precious time shopping everyday...Your menu sounds great, and have fun with your friends!
