YOU GUYS. I’ve *finally* discovered and put into action the secret to easier weeknight dinners– prepping them ahead. This isn’t rocket science, deep down I’ve known it for awhile, but actually doing it is another story. Most of us don’t have all day to prep dinner, especially if you’re a working parent like me, and between sports and homework the afterschool period is one of EVERLOVING INSANITY. One of my latest tricks for prepping healthy weeknight dinners with very little effort on my part is shredding a few rotisserie chickens from Costco and freezing them in smaller portions ahead of time. Then I pull them out the night before, defrost in the fridge, and we have chicken ready to use in a recipe for dinner the next night!
One resource I’ve found infinitely helpful is the book Eat At Home Tonight. Seriously, GAMECHANGER! There’s chapters on meal prep, what to make when the fridge is empty, meals to eat on the go, meals that don’t require a lot of dishes, 15 minute meals, and more. If you’re always looking for quick, easy recipes to make on busy weeknights, RUN and get this book!
If you’re looking for meals to make with rotisserie chicken, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you freeze the chicken ahead of time or use fresh, here’s 20 recipes you can make using shredded rotisserie chicken!
