Other things to do with rotisserie chicken?

Christina Ferrare had some great recipes for what to do with rotisserie or baked chicken on Oprah the other day. I made two of them...chicken pot pie with cornbread crust (I used T.J.'s cornbread mix) and it was great. Also, enchiladas. Both really good! Any other ideas?

  1. make the delicious vietnamese chicken and cabbage salad, goi ga. typically made with poached chicken but i have made it with rotisserie or really any chicken leftovers.

    here's the first decent looking recipe i found via google.
    though somehow, they list teast as an ingredient, but never include it. that's for the best, as far as i know, it doesn't belong.

    i usually just wing it. cabbage, carrot, chicken, fish sauce, lime, peanust. tasty, healthy, can't go too wrong.

      Thank you! I've never had this dish...sounds delicious. I'm going to make it.

    2. There's always using the carcass for homemade broth.

      I like curry chicken salad - mix shredded chicken with sour cream or mayo and yellow curry powder, some mango chutney. Then add things like chopped celery, apples, nuts, grapes. You can do other types of cold chicken salads too. ... one of my favorites is also waldorf chicken salad.

      1. Chicken chow Mein

        Creamed Chicken with crepes

        Chicken Chili

        Chicken Chilaquiles

        Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza or BBQ Chicken Pizza

        Stuff Crescent Rolls or Empanadas or Bao

        Chicken Scarpariello

        chicken Mole

        1. I use leftover rotisserie chicken to make chicken curry on week nights when I don't have time to make it from scratch. Here's the basic recipe:

          -saute a sliced onion, lots of garlic cloves, 2" of ginger, a diced tomato, and a teaspoon each of cumin and caraway seeds in a few tablespoons of olive oil for about 10 minutes
          -dice the rotisserie chicken and throw it in the pan
          -add a teaspoon each of salt, chili powder, and powdered coriander seeds
          -add some plain yogurt, cream, or coconut milk and cook for a few more minutes
          -eat over rice

          I also like to dice leftover chicken and add it to fried rice or mexican rice.

          1. your basic hot chicken sandwich: bread, gravy, chicken, gravy, bread, gravy, peas.

              Curry chicken! That's great and I have all of the spices. Thank you!

            2. Chicken quesadillas
              Chicken & dumplings
              Chicken flautas
              BBQ pizza
              Any type of chicken salad
              Chicken spaghetti
              Thai chicken-coconut soup
              Chicken tortilla soup
              Thai chicken pasta
              Chicken in peanut sauce
              Cobb Salad
              Chicken Tetrazzinni

              Remember to save the carcass so you can make yummy homemade chicken broth. All it takes is a crockpot, veggies & seasonings. If you can't get to it now, freeze the carcass for later.

              1. In addition to the other great ideas already posted, I have shredded the leftover rotisserie chicken for a buffalo chicken dip that I originally found on the Frank's hot sauce website

                1. We went to a friends home the other day, and they made dinner salads and added the chix to it.

                  1. I shred the chicken out and mix with

                    A) A bottle of BBQ Sauce
                    B) A jar of Red or Green Salsa
                    C) A bottle of Greek or Russian salad dressing
                    D) Chopped olives, celery, fennel, capers, garbanzos, canned soy beans or black beans, diced or grape tomatoes, cubed cheeses of various kinds, artichoke hearts or hearts of palm...

                    and serve with flatbread, pitas, tortillas, etc as a "burrito" or roll-up.

                    1. Usually I use the chicken in a salad (possibilities are endless) or panini. Make sure to use the carcass to make chicken stock!!
