with a Costco Chicken*.
*get it? Klondike theme. Anyone, anyone?
Tonight I found myself wandering the aisles of Costco, yet again. Yes bloggettes, that would be 3 Costco trips in 11 days. In my defense, we have a very small fridge, (only 20 cubic feet), and it fills up rather quickly. So I go when we run out of items completely, rather than when said items are getting close to running out.
Unlike the previous two trips, however, this time I was able to purchase one of my favorite items: Costco rotisserie chicken.
We used to hit Costco on Monday evenings with great frequency. But instead of a healthy rotisserie chicken for a quick weeknight meal, we would grab a large pepperoni pizza. Only to return to home and dip it in Gregg’s ranch dressing.
My how times have changed. Their pizza is still pretty bombdiggity, but I feel much better eating a little chicken topped salad. So this week’s foodie goal is to see how far I can stretch this bad boy throughout the work week.
My favorite rotisserie chicken leftover dishes include: chicken noodle soup, creamy chicken and rice soup, burlattas, and caesar salad.
I made my meal plan prior to the Costco trip, so this is subject to change….but here is what I have for Menu Plan Monday:
Monday: chicken caesar salad w/whole grain bread
Tuesday: chicken/steak wraps (on the best tortillas EVER)
Wednesday: chicken & wild rice soup (already made – yay for freezer meals!) + salad
Friday: Insane in the Membrane [turkey] burgers + sweet potato fries (still looking for a no-fail recipe for these…)
Saturday: Carbo-loading for Bloomsday! Roasted red pepper raviolis with butternut squash sauce & salad
Sunday: Crock pot chicken & brown rice & salad
What is your favorite thing to do with leftover rotisserie chicken?
