An abundance of chicken is a mixed blessing--maybe you purchased and cooked in bulk, or those beautiful rotisserie chickens were a buy-one-get-one special. Now what? If you make a big batch of the same dish, your appetite for it might expire before the chicken does. Use up your prepared chicken and keep your menu diverse with these simple recipes.
Chicken and Arugula Pasta Salad
Chicken is an incredibly diverse protein option, especially when you're using leftovers. Pre-cooked chicken, whether from last night's dinner or a grocery store rotisserie chicken, can be thrown into anything from soup to bowls to salads while still staying moist and flavorful.
In this dish, just a bit of a rich and pungent cheese can go quite a long way. Tossing hot pasta with a few ounces of creamy Brie makes for a light, luscious, and flavorful sauce to coat this abundant bowl of chicken, fresh veggies, and whole-grain noodles.
