I was a newlywed when I discovered the magic that is the rotisserie chicken. A precooked, pre-seasoned whole chicken just waiting at my finger tips? Yes please! I could eat chicken almost any night because it’s so versatile, but sometimes I want a quicker option than starting from scratch. Rotisserie chickens are awesome because they are great hot straight from the store, can be refrigerated and warmed up again and never lose their flavor! We’ve rounded up some tasty recipes that will put your rotisserie chicken to work!
