Hey everybody! How’d your Thursday go? Good? Great 🙂
Tonight I took a break from the 101 Simple Salad Challenge (I know, I’m upset too) and took the uber easy route. I swung by Costco after work (UGHHHHH, love that place so muuuuch) and picked up a fresh rotisserie chicken to play starring role in tonight’s dinner.
Isn’t she a beaut?
I just adore Costco’s rotisserie chicken. First of all they are huge, second of all they are $4.99, third of all they are one of the tastiest things ever and fourth of all you can use them in so many different ways! Including, but not limited to:
- Cubed and tossed into salads
- Shredded and mixed into soups
- Chopped and added into casseroles
I just love any food that boasts that kind of versatility, don’t you?
Tonight I ate a thigh and wing with the skin ON – GASP! In my opinion, if you’re going to eat rotisserie chicken, you just have to. It’s the best part!
Now I am NOT a picky eater in any way shape or form (except for cooked carrots and bell peppers,) so in general I like 99% of the things I eat. But when I have something that I really love – I mean REALLY love – I tend to yell out loud:
“I FREAKING LOVE (fill in the blank).”
I definitely yelled that tonight. Rotisserie chicken is…so…good.
I also tend to shout that about garlic bread, Australian licorice and Yoshinoya Beef Bowls. 😀
To go along with my chicken, I made a big pot of brown rice simmered in chicken broth and the strained juices from the rotisserie container. O..m..g… It tasted like one of those Lipton Rice Sides that come in a pouch, except this was minus all the salt and preservatives!
I rounded out the meal with some freshly steamed green beans from my Mom’s friend’s garden. Holy cow, these were incredible!
Garden fresh is always besht. 😉
No seasoning needed on these puppies. The natural flavor was just perfect.
Have a GREAT night everyone!
What do you FREAKING love?
