It’s not that I don’t WANT a yummy comforting meal at the end of the day. It’s just that I don’t always have time/energy to get one on the table.
Between errands, care taking duties, and work it can sometimes be easier to just order takeout.
One of my favorite ways to speed dinner up is to use some prepared ingredients. One of the most flavorful out there is your grocery store’s rotisserie chicken!
That’s why I was thrilled to see that fellow blogger Trish over at Mom on Timeout created a cookbook dedicated to unique new ways to use it.
Her book 100 Creative Ways To Use Rotisserie Chicken has quickly become one of my favorites.
The Chapters Include:
- Casseroles, Bakes, and More
- 5 Ingredients or Less
- 20 Minute Dinners
- Handheld Favorites
- Slow Cooker Creations
- Comfort Foods
- Savory Sandwiches
- Sensational Salads
- Slurpable Soups
Recipes I’m excited to try:
- Cornbread Taco Bake (with french fried onions, I dieee!)
- Chicken Nachos Supreme
- Thai Chicken Flatbread Pizza
- Mexican Manicotti
- Chicken Ranch BLT Wrap
The recipe that I wanted to try right first was this Buffalo Chicken Soup recipe. It is total comfort food! Warm, creamy, and ready in less than 30 minutes.
It takes all my favorite buffalo flavors, and puts them into a bowl of slurpable goodness!
