WHAT TO MAKE WITH LEFTOVER ROASTED CHICKEN: Chicken Salad. Remove all the meat from the bones, vacuum seal and freeze for future easy meals. Use the bones to make Chicken Broth and add left over meat for yummy chicken soup Make Chicken Pot Pie Another really good one is to make Chicken Enchiladas Whenever I buy Rotisserie Chicken at the store I usually buy a couple. This way if you need a quick dinner or lunch idea , You can pull out already cooked chicken and your cooking time is cut in half.

Some people like to stock up on canned chicken. Most of the time it all equals out to the same price, accept with store deli chicken you are getting way more flavor and minus the preservatives.

STORING THE SALAD; This is a great salad to make in advance before your guests arrive. I know what its like to host. You are always looking for recipes you can make prior to your guests arrival, rather than spending all that time cooking you are interacting with them.

It is one of those salads that can be eaten the following day as well. You can even put it between two pieces of toast and take it for a to go lunch.

It can also be delicious in a wrap.

Health Benefits: Who knew that Purple cabbage and Brussels Sprout can have so many good health benefits? Such ass;

Potassium, Vitamin A, Calcium, Vitamin C, Iron, Vitamin B-6, Magnesium. Not only are you eating a delicious salad but you are also getting the nutritional benefits.

I hope you enjoy this salad as much as we do!
