Rotisserie Chicken Recipes

One of my new favorite things to do is buy a Rotisserie Chicken for a good price & see how many meals I can get out of it! These are the latest hits in our family that I did this week.

Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Easy Homemade Pizza Dough
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 Tbsp. yeast
3 1/2 cup flour

Directions:

Dissolve sugar in the lukewarm water. Dissolve yeast in the water mixture. Let stand for 5 minutes. Measure flour into a mixing bowl. Add water mixture to flour and stir until flour is moistened. Turn onto floured surface and knead until firm. Transfer to a greased glass bowl. Cover with a towel and set in a warm place. Let rise until doubled. Punch down after rising and spread dough on a greased cookie sheet or pizza stone. Add your favorite sauce and toppings. Bake in a 350 oven for 20 minutes or until the edges are brown.

I used BBQ sauce, Mozzarella Cheese, sliced Red Onion, the Chicken & Fresh Cilantro. YUMMY!

This is what I did for the recipe:
2 cups Rotisserie Chicken, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ t crushed red pepper flakes
¼ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
2 cups marinara/pasta sauce
1 ½ cups 2% reduced fat shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese, divided
2 oz Parmesan cheese, freshly grated, divided
3.5 oz garlic croutons, roughly crushed, leaving some larger pieces

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly mist a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Spread the cubed pieces of chicken across the bottom of the baking dish in a single layer. Sprinkle the minced garlic, red pepper flakes and basil evenly over the chicken. Spread the sauce evenly across the top. On top of the sauce layer, sprinkle ¾ cup of the Mozzarella and one ounce of the Parmesan evenly across the dish. Sprinkle the crushed croutons across the top and follow with the remaining cheese.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Pre-cooked Chicken
Rice
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
3 Tbsp of Ketchup
1/4 cup water
Directions:
In a bowl, mix brown sugar, soy sauce, water and ketchup.  Stir until well blended.  Set aside.  Measure out enough rice to feed your family.  Pour it into a rice cooker.  If you don’t have a rice cooker, you can still do this on the stove, it just takes a little more watchful eye.  Measure out the correct amount of liquid for your rice.
“For example, I do 2 cups of dry rice.  This means I will need 4 cups of liquid.  I should have almost a cup of teriyaki sauce mixed in my bowl.  I will then need approximately 3 more cups of water.  If you want a stronger teriyaki flavor simply increase the amount of sauce you prepare and decrease the extra waterm accordingly.  Pour the teriyaki sauce in the rice cooker.  Add the extra water.  Dice the chicken and dump it in the cooker as well.  Set the cooker to cook and walk away.  Serve when the switch flips from “cook” to “warm”, at least that’s what mine does.  I usually serve it with steamed veggies (that I cook in my Pampered Chef steamer) or mix the veggies right in.  Super simple and prep time is like ten minutes max.”
Happy Cooking!
