The next time you fire up the grill, add some extra chicken breasts that you can use later in the week for any of these simple dishes. It will save some time in the kitchen and money in your pockets. Plus they will help you stay cool since most of them don’t require the oven.
7 Meal Ideas for “Leftover” Grilled Chicken
4. Lettuce Salad with Homemade Sweet & Sour Salad Dressing
Recently I tried this type of “leftover” chicken meal plan. It was amazing how many meals I could get out of the 5 small chicken breasts that my husband grilled.
Meal 1: Grilled chicken breasts, veggies, and potatoes
Meal 2: Quesadillas
Meal 3: Lettuce salad topped with grilled chicken
My family (2 adults, 4 year old, & 1 year old) ate nearly 3 whole breasts the first night. I was impressed with how far the remaining chicken stretched for the next two meals. This is a very cost effective way to meal plan and cut down on the expense of buying meat.
