Looking for ways to make use of your leftover meat? Here are a few yummy ideas!


All you have to do is pass by your nearest grocery and purchase hot, freshly cooked rotisserie or roast chicken. At home, you can make so many kinds of dishes by simply throwing together a few pantry staples to round out your semi-homemade chicken dish. Here are a few ideas!



1 Sandwiches

Sandwiches are easy, I-need-to-eat-now meal options. They are also great for using up your leftovers! Keep it simple and put together a chicken-pesto sandwich with simple add-ons like tomatoes, cheese, and arugula or other fresh herbs.


Take advantage of your supermarket's ready-to-eat rotisserie chicken.


2 Pizza

No time to make pizza crust from scratch? Use crusty bread, pandesal, tortillas, or that store-bought pizza crust that is stashed in your freezer for emergency meals. Top off your pizza with pieces of shredded roast chicken.



3 Fried rice

This is the easiest last-minute dish you can put together: fried rice! Use your leftover-rice to put together a simple rice dish made with lots of vegetables, herbs, and chicken.
