So I'm gonna post two recipes that you can make out of one chicken! It's great!

RECIPE #1: Asian-ish Pasta With Chicken And Veggies
I've never really had a recipe for this one (someone just told me how to make it) but I'll just write it out.

Chicken (a rotisserie chicken is best but canned chicken/anything else works too.)
Spaghetti (I usually make a whole box of spaghetti which lasts me a loooong time)
A bottle of soy sauce (I use La Choy)
Veggies! Frozen or Fresh. I like to use red peppers, onions, peas, carrots, and corn. I typically use a whole bag of frozen mixed vegetables.

This makes a lot, so you can just use less of everything or get lots of tupperware ready for leftovers (it's really good cold, too!)

First, bring a pot of water to boil. Once it boils, add soy sauce to the boiling water until the water is dark brown, I usually use about half of one of the medium sized bottles. Add the pasta.

While the pasta is cooking, cut up your veggies and get as much chicken off the bones as you want and then chop it up. Mix the chicken and veggies together in a big pan with a little bit of oil and a little bit of soy sauce in the mix.

When the pasta is ready, drain it, and add it to the cooked veggies and chicken. Mix it all together and it is deeeeeeelicious!! Unfortunately, it's not the prettiest looking thing ever, but it's soooo good!

RECIPE #2: Home Made Chicken Noodle Soup

You can use the leftovers of the Rotisserie Chicken to make soup! YAY!

The Leftover rotisserie chicken (all of it, everything!)
Chicken Boullion Cubes
Salt & Pepper
A few cloves of garlic
An Onion
Carrots, Celery, or any other vegetables

So take a big pot and dump all of the leftover chicken in it, bones and all. Then fill up the pot with water at least enough to submerge the chicken. Add the onion, 3 or 4 boullion cubes, 3 or 4 cloves of garlic, and a little salt and pepper.
Put the pot on to boil and allow it to boil for about an hour. Then, skim off all the grossness and oily stuff that forms on the top. After that, turn the heat down to low and keep it on low for hours (I usually leave it over night). Then, skim it again and strain out all of the stuff so you have a pot of yummy broth and then a pot of everything else. Pull all of the good chicken that's left on the carcass (sorry its a gross word but it's all i can think of...) and add it to the broth. Then add your veggies and cook noodles and add those too. SO DELICIOUS! No pictures of this one cause I haven't finished making it yet.
