Category: Rotisserie Chicken Dishes


One of the BEST things to come out of your local grocery store…the rotisserie chicken!!!  This was a very smart move to make use of outdated whole chickens (according to the USDA) than to get rid of them…thus they cook them up..or they make wings, or fry different parts that you can purchase in the deli section of your grocery store.  Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with them…and for those of us who have active lives….or kids…and not enough hours in our day….this is a god send!!!

So stay tuned and I will cook about 10 different meals, using the rotisserie chicken…and mind you, these are going to be easy meals…after all, slaving in the kitchen over a hot stove is not my idea of a good time!!!!!

and as always, check out my blog at http://www.chefboyrd2.com for all my recipes and videos!!!
