Leftover Chicken Recipe Ideas

Seems like there is always leftover rotisserie chicken in our house. One of my favorite things to do with this is to make Chicken Tacos or Burritos.
Chicken Tacos Recipe
1. Pick the rest of the chicken off the bone
2. Heat it up in a frying pan with taco seasoning and a small amount of water (you can follow the instructions on the taco seasoning packet).
3. Then make your favorite style taco or burrito.
I use soft shells, add a little lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese and some tomatoes. The flavor in these tacos is unbelievable! You can also make chicken fajitas this same way. Mmm...Mmmm...delicious!
One of the other things I love to do with leftover chicken is to make bbq chicken sandwiches.
BBQ Chicken Sandwich Recipe
1. Break the chicken into pcs and put in a small pan
2. Add enough of your favorite bbq sauce to coat the meat
3. Heat and serve on sandwich rolls.
That is what I call a quick and easy chicken dinner! The kids love these sandwiches served with french fries or mac and cheese.________________________
