My two least favorite household chores are laundry and grocery shopping. Since I despise grocery shopping, I typically put off going until Sunday afternoon. By this time, I'm tired, my kids are cranky, and I have no desire to cook dinner. More often than not, I pick up a rotisserie chicken from the store and serve it for dinner.

When we get tired of chicken dinner, I love using the rotisserie chicken to prepare a chicken dish. Skipping the step of cooking the chicken really makes preparing certain meals very easy. Here are some of my family's favorite chicken recipes that are great to use rotisserie chicken in.
