Rotisserie Chicken Meal Prep is the perfect way to clean out the fridge and prepare healthy lunches for the week! All you need is one rotisserie chicken and whatever veggies you have left in the fridge from the week before!
If you’re like me, every weekend you’ll find yourself staring into your fridge trying to figure out what to do with what’s left from the previous week. Most of the time it’s a half bag of carrots … maybe two or three eggs … a little bit of hummus … a wrap or two. You know exactly what I’m talking about!
These are exactly what you need to create a week of healthy lunches that can be prepared in under an hour using a rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store! Make sure to check out my recipe for Air Fryer Whole Roasted Chicken if you’d like to make your own rotisserie style chicken at home.
I put together 5 different lunches, each under 500 calories, with what I had in my fridge. If you don’t have all of the ingredients you see here, it’s OK! This post is meant to help you think of creative ways to use what you have in your fridge! Meal prep is such a great way to make sure you have something healthy to eat for lunch everyday and to cut down of food waste at the same time!
