12 Easy Midweek Meals to Make With a BBQ Chicken

Many of us are familiar with the dinnertime dash into the local supermarket, bolting through the checkout with a hot rotisserie chicken in hand. Here’s 12 delicious and completely doable dinners using a BBQ chicken.

More often than not, recipes using a BBQ or rotisserie chicken call for the meat to be shredded, which is super easy. Simply carve the chicken as normal and then shred the pieces with two forks. Leftover shredded chicken meat can be frozen and is awesome for sandwiches and wraps.
