Rotisserie chicken is more than one tasty meal. Play your cards right and it can often make two or three easy dinners, especially if you are in a one- or two-person household.

My sister uses her leftover chicken to make a wonderful chicken soup.

Others I know have used the pieces in luncheon salads. Casseroles can offer another option.

Cornbread stuffing and chicken make a great combo and since the chicken is already cooked, cook time in a slow cooker is more like 4 to 6 hours instead of the usual 6 to 8. For those of you who are fortunate enough to be able to make it home for lunch, it’s a great time to put on the cooker for dinner serving. Perhaps, like my co-worker, you make the week’s dinners during the weekend. This is just one idea to help out the mealtime frenzy. All that will be needed is two to three cups of cooked chicken to get started.

When you purchase a rotisserie chicken, there are a number of flavor options. I suggest either the traditional or lemon pepper.
