Ready to transform your leftovers? Here are 18 Ways To Use Leftover Chicken or Rotisserie Chicken to make new, healthy dinners!

by, Lindsay Livingston, RD (The Lean Green Bean)

If you know anything about me and my blog, you know I'm a huge proponent of food prep. I even wrote a whole ebook about it. One of my weekly staples during my food prep sessions is to prep chicken. In the summer, I usually grill it. In the colder months, I either make it in the crockpot or bake it in the oven. 

Now if you're sitting there thinking how boring and gross it is that I just eat precooked plain chicken night after night, let me assure you that is not the case! In fact, to my currently pregnant self, nothing sounds worse than plain chicken right about now (gag!). Instead, I like having it cooked so I can quickly and easily transform it into new meals that are both healthy and flavorful!

Since I'm always encouraging people to get on the food prep train, I thought I'd round up some recipe ideas and encourage you guys to give it a try. Here are 18 recipes that can be made with leftover chicken OR rotisserie chicken, which is also super handy to have in your fridge! Also keep in mind you can make your own rotisserie-style chicken in your crockpot or just roast a chicken in the oven to have on hand.
