Rotisserie chicken with broccoli alfredo pasta

Easy leftover rotisserie chicken recipe. Here.

Every time I go to Costco- i buy a rotisserie chicken. EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Sometime it’s just a short trip for organic full fat milk they have, 2 gallon in a box. Or a trip for toothpaste and toothbrushes, oops, here you can spot a rotisserie chicken in my cart as well. It’s funny how easy it is !

Costco trips are a weekly routine in our house.  Great prices, helpful workers and a great selection of meat and seafood (at least at out local Costco they always have lobster tails, crabs, all kind of shrimp; lamb, organic chickens and a huge beef section).

Kids love our trips too- they always leave the store with presents and all kind of healthy snacks!

How to freeze leftover rotisserie chicken

So years of shopping for chickens inspired me to create all kind of easy leftover recipes with chicken breasts.

I like to freeze Rotisserie chicken leftovers for later use. I dice the meat and pack in to a zip lock bag (a couple zip lock bag can be used if you  cook for one person at a time).

When you picked a recipe and ready to use your leftovers, just leave the plastic bag in the fridge overnight. Alternatively you can put frozen chicken in to a bowl with warm water for quicker thawing, or even leave it in the microwave for a cople minute on DEFROST setting.
