20 Ideas for Using Up Roasted Chicken

20 Ideas for Using Up Leftover Roasted Chicken

One of my favorite frugal dishes is roasted chicken. From one whole chicken you get several meals worth of meat, plus leftover bones to make nutrient-dense homemade chicken stock

After the first night's bounty, the leftover chicken can be used in a myriad of other recipes or simply to snack upon.

But, if you roast chicken every week, it's likely you'll end up in a recipe rut! 

It happens to everyone. 

You might be cooking extra roasted chicken on purpose to use for quick meals later on, or maybe you want to have plenty of homemade broth in your freezer. 

Who knows.

There are a bazillion reasons why a pile of leftover cooked chicken might appear in your fridge.

And at that rate, you're bound to be stumped at some point with how to use the leftover chicken so it tastes just as good (or even better) than the first night's dish. Happens to me all the time!

Homemade Lemon Sugar Scrub Recipe

Homemade Exfoliating Lemon Sugar Scrub Recipe |

Have you ever put off showering because you didn't want your skin to feel tight and dry afterward? It's usually worse during the winter when the heat is cranked and the air inside your home becomes extra dry. 

My solution used to be slathering on lotion, but that stopped when I took a look at the ingredients list and was unimpressed with all the chemicals.

Homemade Lemon Pepper Seasoning (without sugar or additives)

Homemade Lemon Pepper Seasoning (without sugar or additives)

One of my favorite types of posts to publish here on The Rising Spoon are ones explaining how to make common kitchen ingredients (or foods). 

I'm usually spurred to do this because the store-bought counterparts are loaded with atrocious additives, chemicals and generally uber processed junk.
