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.
- 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
- Remove and discard the chicken skin.
- Tear the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
- 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.
- 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.
