We’ve been enjoying some creative ways to use a Costco rotisserie chicken. It’s so inexpensive and delicious!
First, let’s talk about the joys of a Costco rotisserie chicken.
They cost five bucks and they taste wonderful. A rotisserie chicken is a fantastic “convenience food” worth taking advantage of when you hit Costco. Enjoy it with a simple salad and container of berries and you have an amazing meal for around $10!
My Costco chicken friend
We have a dear, precious friend who blesses us with a rotisserie chicken almost every time she goes to Costco. Why does she do this? Because she knows we have our hands full of babies and a lot of mouths to feed. This is a way she blesses our family. Not only does she pick up a chicken for us: she takes the meat off the bone and delivers it in a bag, ready for us to eat! It’s such a gift!!!
Here are some ways we enjoy this gift…
Ways to Use a Costco Rotisserie Chicken
1. Serve the chicken with salad and veggie or fruit, and you have yourself a meal.
Like this, except with rotisserie chicken. I didn’t have a current picture. :) :) :)
2. Sprinkle the chicken into a salad to turn a salad into a meal.
3. Get creative with chicken in the lunchbox.
Send the chicken in a lunchbox along with ranch dressing or barbecue sauce for dipping.
4. Make Chicken-Cheese Melts.
Put chicken on open-faced buns, drizzle ranch or another favorite sauce on the chicken, cover with cheese and broil in the oven, or put them into the air fryer to melt the cheese. These are a favorite!!!
The above picture is a look at how I built our lunch sandwiches one morning. Elias and Matt were heading to their weekly prayer lunch with friends so I made theirs to send with them on paper plates. Malachi was finishing a work project with a deadline at his computer one morning so I fixed a special plate for him. The littles and I finished the rest. :)
5. Make Alfredo and stir in some rotisserie chicken. Amazing!
6. Make Chicken Enchiladas.
This picture isn’t too exciting, but here’s what it looked like one morning when I was building a great big pan of Creamy Enchiladas to share at Malachi’s tennis team potluck. I had rotisserie chicken in the freezer so I pulled it out and used it to put this together quickly. It was a huge hit at the potluck!
The best way to eat a Costco rotisserie chicken is simply to eat it. :) But it’s fun to have these options too when thinking about creative ways to use up chicken that’s been pulled off the bone.
