I love to get a big rotisserie chicken when I go to Costco, Publix, or Whole Foods, and after we have some of it for dinner, I shred up the leftovers to make even more delicious meals! (And we make a delicious broth from the carcass to repurpose it even more!)

Buffalo chicken dip, casseroles, quesadillas, & tacos are some of my favorites!
