10+ Delicious Things to Do with a Rotisserie Chicken

A collection of chicken recipes from Deep South Dish, great for using one of those deli rotisserie chickens, or one that you've made yourself at home, like Mimi's Rotisserie Style Sticky Chicken, pictured above.

10 Delicious Things to Do with a Rotisserie Chicken

Since this time of year is a super busy one, I thought I'd bring you a roundup of some recipes that can easily start with a rotisserie chicken, whether it's one you've roasted yourself or one you picked up form the deli on the run home. Let's face it. There just isn't a lot of time or energy to spend putting together a good meal on weeknights for any of us, and certainly during the big holidays. At the same time though, when we are done with our errands and running, we really still want to relax with some good ole comfort food and not fast food.

Fortunately we can skip the drive through and, with a little help, still put together a quick meal that gets us in and out of the kitchen a little faster.  Whether it's your own homemade "rotisserie style" chicken recipe that you roasted in advance or one grabbed with a quick run through the express lane by the market, a precooked chicken can speed meal time up significantly.

Now, of course, after you pick that rotisserie chicken clean, save those bones! Bag 'em up and make a homemade stock with them when you have more time on your hands to simmer the bones, but, for now, if you're looking for a few different things to do with the meat off of the bird, here are a few recipes I have here at the site. These will help you transform a store-bought rotisserie chicken into a creation all your own, and get you where you can get the kids to bet and relax, just a little bit faster.

Start any of these with a store-bought rotisserie chicken or one that you've made up ahead yourself. Mimi's is an awesome chicken!
