Do you use rotisserie chicken in a lot of recipes like I do? I use it for my Mexican Lasagna, quesadillas, burrito bowls, enchiladas, nachos, and so much more.

Sometimes I do not want to deal with getting the meat off of a store bought rotisserie chicken (and by the way, Costco and Kroger offer it already taken off the bone) and this actually ends up being easier for me. I almost always have chicken in the freezer or the fridge. Right now I have lots of frozen chicken on hand from my stop in to Fresh Market last week on a Tuesday. Every Tuesday they have 2.99/pound chicken and I finally remembered to go there. I feel like their quality is great, too.

Here is what you need:

boneless skinless chicken breast

chicken broth

garlic powder, salt, pepper, or any spices you like, really

Put chicken in a pan or stockpot and either use all chicken broth or half broth/half water like I did. Add in your spices and cook slowly until cooked through. I think if you cook too quickly it can get dry.

Simply shred with two forks after it cools a bit.

Here is what the final product looked like – just like rotisserie chicken but white meat only

Also, I decided to make rice with the leftover liquid. The rice turned out super flavorful. I am trying to waste less food in 2020 so that made me super happy.

This may be the most no-brainer post ever, by the way. You may be thinking – duh! Ha!

Thanks for reading,

    1. I just rarely go to Costco. It seems like I spend too much and it’s a bit of a haul. I can have this ready in 20 minutes or less, too! My burners boil in 45 seconds so this is pretty efficient.


  1. I need to take advantage of doing this. I didn’t realize Fresh Market had a chicken sale day–good to know their quality is good. The last time I bought fish from them, I returned it, yes, I did! It was slimy–ew.

    1. Oooh slimy fish is not good! They have ground beef, too. 2.99 a pound on Tuesday and there is also a meal deal for 12.99 and it is a bargain. Check it out. I love Fresh Market and always feel so European when I go there! Lol!
