Buying Rotisserie chicken for lunch is so easy and time saving! Especially when you get a good deal on it (like Costco rotisserie chicken)… My kids only like to chicken thighs and drumsticks to eat, so most of the time we end up with a chicken breast leftover. It can be used in so many different ways! You can try in easy rotisserie chicken frittata for breakfast or chicken salad for lunch.

    Oh yum! Love all of that cheesy goodness! My youngest and husband would devour this meal.


  13. That’s totally me you are describing! If I roast chicken (or boil it for soup), I eat every part of the chicken, except for breast. Seriously, before I moved to North America, I didn’t know people would want to pay that much more for breast meats! I can never have enough recipes to use up that leftover chicken breasts 🙂
