Rotisserie chicken from the grocery store is a great option for those on the go with limited time to cook dinner but still want a hearty meal instead of fast food. If your rotisserie routine is starting to get old though, fear not. We came up with five new ways to use your bird throughout the week.
Monday: Toasted Sandwich

Carve strips of chicken and place them on one half of a baguette. Top with brie. Then, add fig jam to the other half and top with pear slices. Pop both slices into the toaster oven for 5-7 minutes and then sprinkle arugula. Assemble your sandwich, slice in half and serve.
