10 Fabulous Recipes Using Store-Bought Rotisserie Chicken
Turn rotisserie chicken into an easy dinner! From chicken pot pie to white chicken chili, these recipes are perfect for weeknight meals. With a cooked chicken already at your fingertips, these recipes come together in no time at all.
Hands up if you grab a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store!
There is one in my cart nearly every time I’m at the store, because it’s such a quick and easy building block to so many other meals. We use them in salads, quesadillas, wraps, and omelets, to name a few, but you can also lean on them as a fabulous shortcut for many meals.
You can use a rotisserie chicken for any recipe that calls for “cooked chicken” and I’ve rounded up my 10 favorite (plus one bonus!) recipes here on BEB that can utilize a store-bought rotisserie chicken for quick and easy (but super hearty!) weeknight dinners.
This classic Chicken Pot Pie recipe starts with a creamy filling full of chicken, potatoes, carrots and peas, and is topped with homemade pastry crust. Absolute comfort food at its finest; make it for dinner tonight!
This classic homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is made from scratch with chicken, vegetables, broth and noodles, and is ready in under an hour. Use a store-bought rotisserie chicken to save even more time!
This easy White Chicken Chili recipe is made with white beans, a trio of chiles, and lots of seasonings for maximum flavor. By using rotisserie chicken or chicken that you’ve already batch prepared, this can be on the table in just 45 minutes, making it a perfect weeknight dinner option.

An old recipe from my grandma that always gets rave reviews at my house! Using Bisquick to make the crust and thicken the sauce means that this meal comes together extraordinarily quickly.
An oldie but a goodie! One of my favorite pizza splurges, the combination of chicken, bbq sauce, red onion, and melted cheese is just so, so good.
BONUS! BEB’s Most Popular Appetizer…
This Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe is an easy classic that features three different layers of flavors including chicken mixed with your favorite hot sauce (I always go for Frank’s RedHot!), cream cheese, ranch dressing and, of course, lots of cheese!
