This is not the chicken you can get from Wegmans, but it looks better than their pic.
Money was tight this past weekend and I hadn’t shopped in a while. I discovered something: If I just don’t cook, people eat what there is. As in my husband. I did “make” my son lunch. I won’t tell you what. (He ate it with a spoon, out of a plastic cup. It usually goes with jelly. Don’t laugh. He likes it like that.)
Anyway. Things are (a little) looser today, so here’s what I’m going to make for dinner: rotisserie chicken.
OK, Wegmans is going to make it, but here’s what I’m going to make tomorrow: Chicken salad.
Here’s how I like to do that:
2 cups roast chicken chunks (I like them small.)
2 ribs celery, diced small
2 tablespoons minced onion
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 shakes from the celery salt shaker
2 shakes from the dill shaker
7-8 turns freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup Miracle Whip light
I like it on Arnold’s Whole Wheat Thins, with Swiss if I’m feeling indulgent.
My husband likes huge slices of full-calorie 12-grain bread. Must be nice to be a runner.
Maybe I’ll make some bread in the bread machine. That’ll save some bread.
If chicken salad doesn’t do it for you, here are some other recipes you can make with leftover rotisserie chicken.
