Four Tasty Recipes Made with Rotisserie Chicken

In the past, in honor of National Rotisserie Chicken Day, we had a blog featuring recipes using a cooked chicken from the store. We’re doing it again!

It’s so rare to find prepared food as healthy as what you would cook at home. While there is a longstanding myth that store-cooked chicken is unhealthy, it’s often just like what you cook at home. The only difference is that they save you time and, often, money! Stores price their cooked chickens lower than their raw ones to bait you into the store.

While it’s a great dinner just as it is, you can also use it as an ingredient, saving you a step in the recipe! It’s a great time-saving way to make a tasty meal! Here are four more great dishes using rotisserie chicken.

Low-carb Shredded Rotisserie Chicken Chili


We love everything about chili, except how long it takes to make. That’s when this amazing recipe shines. It’s wonderful to have a tasty chicken chili on the table in a half hour! The chili is made with simple ingredients and is perfect for busy evenings when you want an easy dinner on the table fast. A serving has 310 calories, 9.6 grams of carbs, 2.2 grams of fiber and 13.4 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Veggie Loaded Rotisserie Chicken Casserole


We love this casserole as it’s delicious, leaves you with a ton of leftovers and isn’t as heavy as many casseroles. Casseroles are comforting and homey. But they can also be very heavy in fat. This recipe uses Greek yogurt in place of heavy cream. It also has a ton of vegetables! With cheese crisps in the place of breadcrumbs, you cut out the carbs and have a delicious meal that is bound to become part of your normal rotation. A serving has 335 calories, 11.8 grams of carbs and 18 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Chicken and White Bean Soup


We love soups that taste like they took a long time to cook. They’re perfect on cool summer evenings. However, we don’t want our stovetop to be on for hours on a hot day. This soup is the key to getting the best of both words. It helps you get a tasty, homey Italian-style soup on the table in under a half hour. A serving has 248 calories, 15 grams of carbs, four grams of fiber and six grams of fat. Get the recipe.    

Rotisserie Chicken Quesadillas


Here’s a meal you can make in just 10 minutes! It’s more a case of combining ingredients than actual cooking. However, by adding a few simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, along with rotisserie chicken, to some low-carb tortillas, you have a phenomenal dinner on the table fast. We love simple midweek meals that let you eat well without worrying about your health goals. A serving has 244 calories, 15.5 grams of carbs, three grams of fiber and 10 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

We hope these recipes help you enjoy rotisserie chicken soon. It is one of the best and most affordable time savers at the grocery store and so versatile we can’t get enough of it!
