9 Easy Make-Ahead Rotisserie Chicken Dishes That Will Satisfy Every Time
With a store-bought chicken, Tupperware, and a little time spent on Sunday, you can prepare a weeks-worth of delicious and tasty lunches.
1. Quick and Easy Chicken and Dumplings
By using the rotisserie chicken and pre-made biscuit dough, these come together so quickly! Definitely delicious and will warm you all the way through.
2. Chicken Salad
Chicken salad is great--you can even customize it with your favorite sauces and mix-ins. My favorites: celery, red grapes, Miracle Whip, and a little ranch dressing.
Pack your chicken salad seperately. If having with bread or crackers, you don't want them getting soggy. Yuck.
3. Rotisserie Chicken Chef Salad
Top with your favorite dressing, but pack it separately from the greens...again, to avoid soggy-ness.
Try these to keep everything seperate.
4. Healthy Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole
Skip the step where you cook the chicken, just add your rotisserie chicken in at the end.
5. Ranch and Buffalo Chicken Wrap Recipe
Make sure to pack your chicken mixture separately from your tortilla and veggies.
6. Salsa Verde Chicken Casserole
If you want avocado as a topping, don't prep it until the morning of or the night before. Cut the avocado in half but keep it in the rind. Give it a squeeze of lime juice and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Air=brown avos. Just scoop out with a spoon after you've heated your casserole!
7. Copy-Cat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl
Package all of the ingredients you'd like to reheat together, and all of the cold toppings in a seperate container. After reheating your chicken, beans, and rice, top with your salsa, sour cream, and olives!
8. Chicken Alfedo and Rice Casserole
This reheats so well! Warm and savory for a mid-day pick-me-up.
9. Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps
Again, pack seperately from your tortillas (I like to use spinach wraps). I also like to add a little chopped tomatoes for a fresh kick.
