Rotisserie chicken is one supermarket find that never disappoints, and it’s an easy way to get dinner on the table without cooking anything (just microwave a bag of frozen veggies to round out the meal, and voila!). Here’s the best part: If you have leftover rotisserie chicken, you’re not stuck with days’ worth of sad and dry microwaved meat, either.

Because rotisserie chicken is so versatile, a sprinkle of spice or drizzle of sauce can give it a second life — and you’ll never suffer from meal fatigue. The next time you have extra rotisserie chicken meat lying around, use it in one of these quick and easy meals to get the most bang for your cluck. (Sorry.)
