Rotisserie Chicken Two Ways

One rotisserie chicken.

Two completely different meals.

I’m on it.

Last Friday afternoon I picked up a fresh rotisserie chicken, brought it home and immediately took it off the bone. Hint: it’s MUCH easier to get off the bone when it’s warm than when it’s cold.

I took half the chicken, chopped it up and added it to this crock pot lasagna recipe ~ lasagna with mushrooms, spinach and a bechamel sauce. I also chopped up one red pepper and added that in with the onion, mushroom and spinach mixture.

{Since Leah’s recipe didn’t include the chicken, I just went ahead and followed her directions and scattered the chopped chicken on top of each veggie layer}

Started the crock pot at 3:00pm and when we got home at 7:00pm from dance, dinner was ready!


Recipe numero dos….

I had the other half of the chicken ready for another meal and decided to make this curried chicken salad with almonds and raisins from Tyler Florence.

Two words ~ DEEEE-LISH!

I had all ingredients on-hand. LOVE when that happens.

I served it with some leftover quinoa.



I don’t know about you, but Mr. Rotisserie and I are good friends. I can always count on him.

Please DO share some of your rotisserie chix secrets!

Happy Tuesday!

Improve Your Eyesight

Don’t you remember growing up you always heard, “Eat your carrots…they’re good for your eyes!”

I heart carrots. I know they’re not the best veggie out there, but hey, they’re veggies.

I also love curry. So naturally, when I came across this soup, I tried it.

Curried Carrot Soup

It’s another one of those recipes that use very few ingredients.


Everyone thinks that there is cream in this soup. Nope. No dairy. Guilt free. With just the right amount of kick from the cayenne pepper. Today I served the soup with egg salad tea sandwiches…not a bad combination. Even my good friend who isn’t a soup lover gave it her stamp of approval! Thanks, K!
