Roast chicken is great as an easy, satisfying meal. But a large chicken can leave you with days' worth of leftovers, which might seem boring to eat day after day. However, leftover chicken is an amazingly versatile dish. Once you've taken the meat off the bones and shredded it, you're left with lots of easy weeknight meal possibilities. Salads are a great route, whether it's a southern-style chicken salad or kale topped with meat. We've also got soups and has and enchiladas on deck for your bird. If a recipe calls for raw chicken, skip the step that describes cooking it and sub in your pre-cooked chicken for a simple meal. With our best leftover chicken recipes, you might not want to eat any of the chicken the night you make it.
