Ten (Costco) Rotisserie Chicken Recipes

Ten (Costco) Rotisserie Chicken Recipes

As I tucked into my 4th Costco Chicken sandwich, I realized this $4.99 purchase was the only thing I’d eaten at home since October 6th.

That is when friends hadn’t rescued me by inviting me out.  But all four nights when they hadn’t, it was a chicken sandwich.  I’d slathered whole grain bread with mayo, or blue cheese dressing, or made chicken salad using ranch dressing.  And last night, the bird spent its two-week anniversary in the fridge.  Even then, there were still leftovers that I stripped from the chicken, froze them, knowing they would come back to life in yet another incarnation, preferably not as a sandwich.

Here are ten ways to cook with Rotisserie Chicken. Note: I didn’t say Costco.

I think it is only fair to mention that all’s not well with Costco Chicken. And I’ve written about it. (See Spicy Thai Coconut Soup if you’re in a hurry to find out.).  So before I drown in hypocrisy, every one of these recipes can be made with ANY Rotisserie chicken of your choosing. I ache from the memories of the ones in the market in Lyon, pictured here.  The Rotisserie Chicken is a gift to any time-pressured cook.  And it’s amazingly adaptable as shown in these ten recipes.

Rotisserie Chicken Recipes Span the Globe.

Anywhere people eat chicken, rotisserie chicken is sure to be on hand.  We found it in Thailand, in Britain, in Italy, in Mexico, and in our own southern backyard.  As mentioned, it makes a great sandwich.  Of course, it belongs in Pot Pies and we share three of them. It makes great soups and stews. And there may be no way to enjoy Mexican food without shredding it into tacos, enchiladas, and tostadas.  And if you want to stir up controversy, its use in an unconventional pasta recipe is bound to raise the ire of many an Italian. So here they are…all ten of them.
