What's with all the chicken?

Originally posted on my blog, So Not Zen, January 8, 2009.

Inspiration hit at the dinner table tonight. The dinner table, where I sat with my family, eating a delicious dinner that took about five minutes to prepare, was relatively healthy and was equally enjoyed by the adults and the child.

I picked up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store for $5 ($5!) and served it with a lovely garden salad and corn. Quick. Easy. Affordable.

I am a big fan of the store-cooked rotisserie chicken. And though we had it in its intended form tonight, I've repurposed them many times for chicken andouille gumbo, chicken noodle soup, enchiladas and so on.

And that's when the inspiration hit. I'm starting another blog! A food blog! About repurposing rotisserie chickens! Exciting, right? I know! And I promise! To use! Lots of unnecessary exclamation points! On that blog too! Yay!

I'm setting it up now, and launching it this weekend. I'll be posting a weekly recipe for repurposing a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Can you even stand the excitement?That's 52 ways to create a tasty meal using a prepared grocery store chicken. I'll be experimenting with new recipes, so some weeks could be hit or miss. But still! 52 new recipes! I am going to rock the chicken in 2010!

So stay tuned... the big launch will be announced as soon as the site is ready. Prepare yourself, because...

PS: Is that not the sickest blog name ever? And by sick I mean phat. And by phat I mean wicked, cool, bad ass.


  1. Even though I now get whole chickens from a local farmer, for years I bought pre-cooked chickens at the store like you're doing now.

    It's so much less expensive this way than buying a pack of skinless boneless chicken breasts.

    And, after dinner, I always use the bones to make broth for a future meal.

  2. Yes, indeed Shana, the blog name is wicked cool!!!
