My newest obsession is this easy rotisserie chicken sandwich because it is no cook, delicious and a great alternative to ordering out. These rotisserie chicken sandwiches make a great grab and go meal from the grocery store or a great way to use up that left over rotisserie chicken or any leftover chicken you may have. I know you will love it as much as we do!
About this recipe:
This rotisserie chicken sandwich is a no cook, easy sandwich that anyone can make and it only requires a few ingredients from the grocery store. The main ingredient, the rotisserie chicken is picked up at the store making this really easy.
For me, rotisserie chicken makes meals so much easier and I use it other recipes like my Asian Chicken Salad, to make a quick weeknight meal.
I also like to make this sandwich in place of ordering takeout. It takes the same amount of time to run in to the store to grab these ingredients as it would to order out.
It also makes a great picnic dish. I love making these sandwiches along with my Italian potatoes with salsa verde for a delicious meal outdoors. It is healthier and more economical too!
Here are the ingredients you will need:
- Store bought rotisserie chicken (or leftover rotisserie chicken meat).
- Goat cheese
- Fresh baguette
- Dressing (olive oil, dijon, rice wine vinegar, water).
- Kosher salt.
If you want to skip making your own dressing, just look for dijon vinaigrette in the store while you are picking up your other ingredients.
Here are what the steps look like making this sandwich:
Tips for making this sandwich:
- Make sure you are using the freshest baguette you can find, preferably bought the same day you are ready to make this. You do not want the sandwich to be too tough.
- Depending on where you live, rotisserie chicken can sell out fast, usually in the morning. If you know this is the case or are not sure, you can purchase the rotisserie chicken in the morning and refrigerate it until dinner. To re-heat the rotisserie chicken, just wrap it in aluminum foil (make sure to pour the juices over the meat) and place in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until warmed through.
Serving the Sandwiches:
Sometimes it is nice to give a little more attention to the presentation of our food by dressing it up a bit. I like cutting sheets of parchment paper to cover the middle half of the baguettes and then tie them with a little kitchen twine.
This step is totally optional but it looks beautiful and is a great way to serve these rotisserie chicken sandwiches to family and friends.
Looking for more ways to use rotisserie chicken in recipes:
- I love making this Asian chicken salad. Just like with this sandwich, it uses store bought rotisserie chicken and lots of delicious goodies from the store and then I make the most delicious creamy Asian dressing to go over it.
- When I have leftover rotisserie chicken meat, I like adding it to my rice and bean burritos. It is a favorite!
- You can use it to make this Curry chicken salad in lettuce cups. This is another family favorite and really big on flavor!
