What would YOU make with roasted chicken?

We are on a tight budget this week and bought two 5lb chickens. I am roasting them right now to use in different meals. I am planning on homemade pizzas, both bbq and buffalo. And maybe a pot pie.

I need suggestions. What do you make with roasted chicken?

We do have more than the chickens, but I would like to use the chicken for at least 4 meals.

  • My husband makes chicken quesadillas with the rotissarie chickens we buy at the store. Just some chicken (sometimes we add BBQ sauce), and either a cheese blend with some veggies like onions and peppers, or we add feta, spinach, and tomatoes.

  • My mom used to use roasted chicken in a chicken and rice casserole. Tear up some of the chicken, add cooked wild rice and a little chicken broth and bake it. She usually served that with some sort of veggie like broccoli.

  • For a cheap meal - mashed potatoes, make some pan gravy with the drippings, and steamed carrots (or whatever veggie is cheap for you or that you have in abundance). I actually prefer mashed taters with roast chicken ;o).

  • One meal with just the roasted chicken with salad.
    Another with chicken tacos (so, you can use up the leftover lettuce & tomatoes.
    The chicken pizzas & then chicken chili.
