What to do with Rotisserie Chicken?

If you’re like me, the flavors of Rotisserie Chicken stays on my palate from one episode to another. For me, it was those days late after work, too tired to make my own dinner and the ease of these budget-friendly rotisserie meals that enticed me. Fast forward 15 years, and the flavors of those store-bought rotisserie chicken on its own just doesn’t call my name, though the convenience of ready-to-eat protein does. So here are a few ideas of what I do with rotisserie chicken after I shred it. I usually shred the chicken on the day I bring it home from the store, then freeze it in small ziplock bags for convenient future use:

Pasta Salad (Teriyaki, Korean GoChuJang, or Indian Curry Pasta Salad) 

Home-made Pizza (Tikka Masala, BBQ Chicken Pizza)

Pot Pie (Semi-Homemade, Regular Homemade or Curried Pot Pie)

Fried Rice (GoChujang, Malaysian, Chinese, Sriracha or any flavor you’d like)

Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup (with added shredded chicken for a heartier version)

Filling for Asian Lettuce Wraps or Tacos or Chicken Enchiladas

Or any recipe that calls for diced or shredded cooked chicken is fair game.
