This is yet another recipe that was born out of necessity. My friend was coming for dinner, I had no plan and no time to make anything in advance, so I grabbed a rotisserie chicken from the store.
Then I made this No Cook Buffalo Pulled Chicken Sandwich with Caraway Coleslaw. It was perfect because it’s a super quick and easy dinner that uses rotisserie chicken, so it requires no actual cooking. And they are only 5 Weight Watchers freestyle smart points each!
I am a little bit buffalo chicken crazy -I love the stuff! And I love it even more when it’s easy to make. And if you feel the same way, you have come to the right place! My Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks (no cook) and my Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Mini Peppers are both made with leftover rotisserie chicken.
Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
Shredding and pulling are interchangeable terms when it comes to chicken. And with this sandwich, you pull (or shred) rotisserie chicken the exact same way you would pull pork (see video: How to pull chicken ) It’s so easy to do so it’s also a great way to get the kids helping with dinner!
Store bought rotisserie chicken recipes
Store bought rotisserie chicken is the best because there’s so much you can do with it. It costs almost the same as buying a chicken and cooking it (minus the labor) so why wouldn’t I; especially if I’m in a hurry, it’s too hot to cook or I simply want a break from cooking? Sometimes I eat rotisserie chicken straight up, but I also love to transform it into something different and this buffalo chicken sandwich is both satisfying and healthy. The coleslaw is quick and easy to make and balances the texture with a nice crunch!
And if you are making less than 4 sandwiches or find that you have rotisserie chicken leftovers, then reinvent them into these Easy Chicken Quesadillas with rotisserie chicken !
No Cook Meals
Between work, after school activities and whatever else you have going on, life is busy and sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy to cook, but still want a hot meal. So why not grab a precooked chicken at the grocery store and put this No Cook Buffalo Pulled Chicken Sandwich on the menu? Enjoy….
