The first night, I took all of the meat off the bird, and put it in the fridge. Usually the first night we eat it hot, but I had a salad planned. We ate the chicken on top of red leaf lettuce, baby spinach, with fresh garden tomatoes, mandarin oranges, and avocados. You could add all kinds of veggies to this, but this is what I had on hand not already planned into other meals. I then made this Honey Poppy Seed dressing to go on it. I also had these yummy brown rice chips that we crunched up on top! Soooo good!
That night, after Cody had gone to bed, I made a batch of hummus (my first time making it, thanks for the idea D!) for the next days dinner. It was better after the flavors have had a chance to blend. I accidentally put a bit too much cayenne pepper in it, and thankfully it mellowed overnight. Along with the hummus, we had toasted wheat pita, the chicken seasoned with a little cracked pepper, feta cheese, veggies, and fruit. We mostly made little sandwiches with hummus-chicken-feta-cucumbers, and it was simple and good.
Now our 3rd day rotisserie chicken meal is almost ALWAYS Chicken BBQ pizza, on pita bread with BBQ sauce, green peppers & onions sauteed, and shredded cheddar cheese. But since we had the yummy feta cheese leftover from last night, we made a version of this Pepper, Onion & Feta pizza. I usually make it with onions, peppers, spinach & artichoke hearts, but this time we did onions, peppers, spinach, olives, & the end of the chicken. I wish I had a red pepper to make it more colorful, but it was good even if it was a little monochromatic.Pizza!
So there are my 3 days of meals with our one little chicken. For around 8$, we were able to have meat in our 3 meals that might otherwise have gone meatless. (Which honestly, we do around here more than Cody would like) I would love to know what you guys do with your chickens, let me know any good ideas your family enjoys!
