That afternoon we had chicken, stuffing, green beans and sweet corn for Sunday dinner - three servings.
After dinner I put together a meal for Husband to take to work on Tuesday - one serving.
I drained the juices from the packaging into a container so I can use them later for stock. I cut away the remaining leg, wing, breast and thigh for future meals and then removed all the little 'bits' of chicken from the frame for another future meal. Finally, I put the frame into some water with herbs, garlic, etc. to simmer for additional stock.
Daughter had a chicken wing as part of her lunch one day - one serving.

One night we had Cesar salads with slices of warm chicken, croutons and parmesan shreds - three servings.
We also had barbecue chicken pizzas for supper one night, made from the 'bits' I'd removed from the frame. We ended up with enough left over that all three of us had it for lunch another day - six servings.

There are many more possibilities, but that is the way that we got eighteen servings from this rotisserie chicken. I'd love to hear ways that you use leftovers to create new meals - leave a comment, pretty please!
