I have found that chicken is a great thing to cook (just as often, I buy rotisserie chicken from the store) because of all the possibilities of things to do with it. I make a large batch of it at a time and we can normally get more than one meal out of it. It takes a lot of energy to make myself cook, so I try to get as many meals out of one cooking session as possible. However, it gets boring to eat the same dish for multiple meals, so I cook a lot of chicken and then make different dishes out of it.

The first meal we eat the chicken as the main dish with a vegetable side; for the next meals I have a few reliable fall-back dishes. These are some of my favorite easy chicken leftover dishes: #1 Chicken Salad #2 Chicken Stir Fry #3 Chicken Sandwich #4 Chicken Quesadilla. We usually have the ingredients for salad, stir fry, sandwiches, and quesadillas in our house so it’s simple to add chicken to it and change up the meal.
On a side note, I found the most delicious tortillas (Mr. Tortilla) to make quesadillas with (and sometimes I eat them by themselves, they’re so yummy!) They have white tortillas, but also flavors like spinach, and even pico de gallo. Yum!
