Parmesan Crusted Chicken (Rotisserie Chicken Upgrade)! - 52 Uses for a Rotisserie Chicken

Pin It Now!

I bet you have seen this recipe on TV... A Mayo company advertised this with uncooked Chicken Breasts.  Well, this is a slight adaptation using a pre-cooked, pre-seasoned Rotisserie Chicken.  I like to use the breast meat for salads and the leg/thigh quarters for an UPGRADE like this.  SIMPLE, 4 ingredients, EASY just slather and re-heat, and FAST... About the time it takes to make some mashed potatoes!

This is an OMG Upgrade.  Amazingly delicious.  (And Simple, Easy and FAST)!

I served this up with a bit of Mashed Potatoes and some of my easy Rotisserie Chicken GRAVY (Yep, made from the goo in the bottom of the Rotisserie Chicken package)!

A delicious Lunch/Dinner and a wonderful upgrade for that store bought time saver!

OK... Here's what I did...

Parmesan Crusted Chicken
(Rotisserie Chicken Upgrade)!

  • 2 Chicken Quarters (Legs and Thighs) From a store bought pre-cooked, pre-seasoned Rotisserie Chicken
  • 1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 TBS Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
  • Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine Mayo, Parmesan, and the Cayenne Pepper Spice. Form into a paste.
  3. Slather the paste on the chicken, coating thoroughly
  4. Sprinkle then pat the bread crumbs onto the paste.
  5. Bake uncovered in a baking dish for 20 minutes until the crust forms and just starts to get a golden brown and delicious charred look.
  6. Serve with a side dish of Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, serve hot from the oven and ENJOY!


This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Uses For a Rotisserie Chicken"  (Now close to 100!)...I am so confused... $5.49 for a fully cooked, fully seasoned Oven Roasted, Rotisserie Chicken. Yet shop in the raw meat department and most raw chickens are at best $8 each and usually far closer to $10. Anyone have an answer??? Me either. So, I can either rail against the machine, or learn to embrace the beauty that is the $5 chicken! In this pin are recipes I have made, and recommend. MORE than 52 (I just can't stop)..
You get the idea.  From Scratch Pizza to Chinese Take Out recipes, Lots of Soups and Chili... Appetizers to Main Courses (Still can't find a dessert, but I am looking).  More than enough ideas for that store nought bird to shine with just a little extra work
