We’re big fans of cooking in bulk where we can, and reusing items from previous meals further along in the week.
Leftover cooked chicken is such a versatile ingredient, and works well in so many other recipes, so we often use it.
We thought we’d compile a list of some of the many, and there are so many, ways that you can use cooked chicken in your family meals. This is fantastic if you have too much chicken roasted or grilled, or you’ve got some leftover rotisserie chicken. There are 20 recipes to get you started, but there are loads more!
Talk about a dinner that performs. This Chicken Alfredo Baked Ziti is a fantastic way to use up leftover chicken. The resulting dish is cheesy and creamy, but the alfredo sauce is lighter than most so it’s easy on the waistline. Plus, using rotisserie chicken the recipe is a breeze. Yum!
Oh hot-pot, how we love thee. This chicken and mushroom hot-pot is great for two reasons. One, it uses up leftover cooked chicken, and two, it’s easy for kids to get involved in. The hearty, filling pie topped with potato slices is sure to satisfy, and you definitely won’t have leftovers this time!
