Easy Recipes With Rotisserie Chicken

1. Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup is a classic for a reason. It’s warm, healthy, and easy to make. And when you use a rotisserie chicken, you can make your own stock so its cheaper to boot.

Ingredients:

  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 6 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 pound of egg noodles
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon of basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper

Directions:

  1. Remove and discard the chicken skin.
  2. Tear the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  3. Place the chicken bones into a dutch oven and cover them with six cups of water. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes to create chicken stock. Remove the chicken bones and discard.
  4. Add chicken, vegetables, and spices. Turn up the heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for an additional 20 minutes.

You can add almost any seasoning you want to this soup. A few restaurants in my area even serve spicy chicken noodle soup, made from Cajun seasoning blends.
