It’s the holidays and that means things are starting to get kind of crazy!
Between all of the kid’s activities and the holiday parties, it can seem like we have something going on every night.
Cooking often seems impossible with everything we have going on. It’s so easy to just grab take-out or fast food but this isn’t great for our health or our pocket book.
Next time you need a quick dinner, skip the fast food line and get a rotisserie chicken instead.
Rotisserie chickens are a healthy but quick option and depending on your family you may be able to get a couple more meals out of the meat.
If you enjoy freezer cooking rotisserie chickens can help speed up your process and even save you money.
The leftover chicken is great for casseroles, sandwiches, chicken pot pies, soups, the ideas are endless. My husband likes to have cooked chicken around for a high protein snack after a workout.
Rotisserie chickens are typically at least a few dollars cheaper than buying a whole raw chicken. And unlike a whole chicken, which will take you at least an hour to make, a rotisserie chicken is ready to eat as soon as you get home.
The first night you get a rotisserie chicken you likely want a quick side dish to go with it. Skip the boxed or pre-made sides and try these quick and easy homemade sides.
My personal favorite sides to go with a rotisserie chicken are homemade biscuits and green beans. Simple but delicious!
