Quick Dinner Ideas
Rotisserie chicken! To shred rotisserie chicken and have dinner on the table in no time, remove the breasts and legs with your hands or a knife. Remove the bones and, using 2 forks, pull the meat apart. A 2 1/2 pound bird will yield 3 1/2 to 4 cups of meat.
Chicken and Quinoa Burritos
Dividing evenly, top 4 warm whole wheat tortillas with 1 cup warm shredded rotisserie chicken, 1 cup warm black beans, 1 cup cooked quinoa or brown rice, 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, 1 cup cilantro sprigs, 1/2 cup low fat Greek yogurt, and 1 sliced avocado. Roll burritos and serve with corn salsa.
Gingery Peanut Noodles with Chicken
In a blender, blend together 1 cup water, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 3 Tbsp each rice vinegar and soy sauce, 1 Tbsp brown sugar and 1 tsp grated fresh ginger. Toss with 8 oz cooked spaghetti, 1 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, 1 sliced red bell pepper, 1/2 of a cucumber (cut into strips), and 2 sliced scallions. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
