Many of the recipes I post on my blog need a lot of time to prepare. For example, some recipes require that dough has to rise or meat has to smoke before you can serve a meal to your family. There are lots of times where I don’t have that kind of time (or energy), and I just want to put a great meal on the table fast. This is especially true in the summer, when everyone in my family wants to spend the evenings outside. Because of that, I am always looking for quick (and delicious) meal ideas. One quick and delicious meal that my family and I love is the rotisserie chicken at Jewel-Osco, which you can get right by the deli.
Because it is so popular, the chicken is always hot and fresh. Another great thing about Jewel prepared chicken is the “Chicken Meal Deal.” One of the deals includes a whole chicken, 2 sides, bread, and a Coca-Cola™ product. Although the fried chicken is quite good, this past week I opted for the rotisserie chicken, which everyone in my family loves. With that I got macaroni salad, the deluxe cole slaw, rolls, and a 64-ounce Gold Peak® Tea. You can get any Coca-Cola product you like with the meal, but in the summer, iced tea is my go to drink. (I happened to look up some Coca-Cola recipe pairings after purchasing this meal, and I found some great ideas here. I can’t wait to try the grilled chicken tacos!)
If you purchase the meal, remember to go to the deli, as the Jewel employees will get the sides for you fresh from the deli counter. They also will put all the meal items–except the drink–in a small shopping bag with a bar code on it that you will need at checkout.
After I had my meal, I got the Gold Peak Tea in the tea aisle of the store.
Although the chicken meal is a great bargain, Jewel-Osco has other great deals you can check out here.
On occasion, rather than just cutting up the chicken and serving it, I use the rotisserie chicken in a recipe. One recipe I love is the 4-ingredient cast-iron chicken pot pie detailed below. This is a great weeknight recipe, because you can prep it, bake it, and serve it in 45 minutes or less.
1 rotisserie chicken
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (the classic peas, corn, carrots, and green beans)
2 cans (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can refrigerated biscuits
Salt and pepper to taste
12″ cast iron skillet
(If you do not have a cast iron skillet, you can use a 13″ x 9″ Pyrex dish. To compare, the 12-inch skillet is 113 square inches and the Pyrex dish is 117 square inches. So, you don’t have to make any adjustments in the amount of the ingredients if you are going to use a Pyrex baking dish.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
After doing so, get ready to prepare your chicken.
Remove skin and fat from chicken and discard. Using a knife, two forks and/or your hands (I wear disposable vinyl gloves when I do this), remove meat. Discard any additional skin or fat and put the meat in a bowl. Using two forks, “pull” the chicken pieces apart and into small pieces.
Add frozen vegetables and soup.
Stir with rubber spatula until combined.
Pour mixture into 12″ cast-iron pan.
Evenly distribute on top of mixture 1 can of refrigerated biscuits.
Bake until biscuits are golden brown, about 22-25 minutes. While you are waiting, enjoy a cold beverage.
When the pot pie is done, serve immediately and enjoy!
