10 School Lunches You Can Make with Boston Market’s ($1.99) Rotisserie Chicken

This post is brought to you by Boston Market. All opinions are our own.



Is anyone else totally overwhelmed by their massive back-to-school to-do list? Between shopping for new wardrobes (why do kids have to grow SO fast?), tackling massive supply lists and trying to get everyone back into some sort of routine, I feel like I don’t have time left in the day to breathe, let alone cook a huge dinner. Thankfully, I found the perfect solution to the dinner problem: Boston Market!


Boston Market doesn’t just make it easy for me get a delicious family-style meal on the table fast, but they have an amazing deal going on to help me check off another back-to-school list item: lunches!

Dinner AND School Lunches Done in One Stop at Boston Market


 I made a trip to Boston Market this week with some of my favorite people and picked up a Family Meal. They come in sizes to feed 3, 4, or more people. You can choose from rotisserie chicken, meatloaf, BBQ Ribs, or roasted turkey, and then you get your choice of sides and, of course, Boston Market’s amazing cornbread. We had delicious creamy macaroni and cheese, veggies, and mashed potatoes with gravy as our sides.



While there, we also took advantage of the fabulous special Boston Market is running. When you purchase any family meal you get a fresh, never frozen rotisserie chicken for just $1.99.

If you have a huge crew to feed, the deal is great because it really stretches out their already generous family-sized meals. If you don’t have a huge family and really want to make the most of it, though, do what I did and take your $1.99 rotisserie chicken home to use throughout the week in lunches.



I wanted to share with you the three ways I used our leftover rotisserie chicken this week to make lunchboxes easy, healthy, and tasty! Check them out, then keep reading for a few more delicious ways you can use up that rotisserie chicken throughout the week!


10 Ways to Use Your $1.99 Boston Market Rotisserie Chicken



1- Chicken Salad- Make up your favorite chicken salad recipe (we like mayo, pecans, dried cranberries, and diced celery), add crackers, a cheese stick, and a little treat like a few pieces of a chocolate bar.



2- Chicken & Broccoli- Cut small slices of chicken, pop in some fresh broccoli, and ranch dip- dip is a surefire way to get kids to eat whatever you have packed. Don’t forget some fresh fruit like grapes in your lunchbox to round it out.


3- Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas- Shred or chop your chicken, add chicken and shredded cheese to a tortilla, brown on both sides. Allow to cool then pack in your lunch container, add a dip like sour cream and salsa. Toss in some fresh heirloom baby carrots and you have a lip smacking lunch!


Here are a few more ways to use leftover chicken…

4- Make homemade chicken soup

5- Toss it in with pasta

6- Add it to salad

7- Stuff it into loaded baked potatoes

8- Shred and enjoy over rice with gravy

9- Use it for chicken fajitas/tacos

10-Stir it into mac and cheese

Back to school season is probably never going to stop being overwhelming, so we have to take advantage of any shortcuts we can find! Thanks to Boston Market’s delicious home style meals and their amazing $1.99 whole rotisserie chicken deal, you can check off two things from your to-do list in one quick stop: a delicious dinner AND yummy lunches for the first few days of the school year!
