With NaNoWriMo coming up I’m thinking ahead to fast and easy recipes.
I love rotisserie chicken. I often pick up one for my husband and I on days I’ve spent shopping or running errands and don’t want to cook. Since it is now just the two of us at home, after the first meal we are left with half a chicken or more. While I love chicken, it isn’t my husband’s favorite. I look for different ways to serve the chicken that keeps my husband happy.
Rotisserie Chicken and gravy
1 table spoon butter
1 table spoon flour
Chopped chicken with some skin
Add a spoon or two of congealed juice and grease
The skin, juice and grease have the most flavor.
In a sauce pan melt butter, add flour and stir until creamy yellow. As it starts to turn golden, add in milk, juice and grease from chicken, stir and add chopped chicken until warm.
This is great over mashed potatoes or rice. You could even serve it with buttered noodles, add some parmesan cheese and spinach.
It’s also great as a base for potpie. If you have leftover vegetables, especially corn, potatoes, peas or carrots, add them to the gravy, add them into the pie shell. Something quick and easy, chicken sloppy joe, just spoon the chicken and gravy into rolls.
