12 Easy Meals to Make With Rotisserie Chicken
How to Break Down a Rotisserie Chicken
A medium to large chicken will yield 4 to 5 cups meat (both light and dark)
- If you are shredding the meat, it’s easier to do while the bird is still warm. For larger chunks, cool then refrigerate chicken before removing from bones.
RELATED CHICKEN RECIPES:
- When adding chicken to recipes (versus eating them alone), opt for lightly seasoned ones so the flavor of the meat doesn’t compete with the rest of the flavors in the dish.
- Toss chicken bones and scraps of meat into a large water-filled stock pot along with some onions, garlic, carrots and celery. Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes then strain out solids to create homemade chicken broth. Refrigerate and then skim off fat.
