Eating leftovers shouldn't have to be a chore, but meals can be less-than-appealing when you've had the same reheated dish three days running. Enter chicken, the leftover superhero. It's a blank slate that pairs well with any and all flavors and gracefully transitions from main event to salad-topper to sandwich. Through all that, it still manages to taste like, well, chicken.
Here are four chicken dinners that double as tomorrow's lunch:
1. Roast Chicken
For lunch: Use your roast chicken on top of salads (the mayonnaise kind and other, leafier, varieties), tacos, and lettuce wraps.
2. Breaded Chicken
For lunch: All the best sandwiches start with breaded chicken. Try it with caponata and pesto, black beans, jalapeños, and avocado, or in a classic Parmesan sub (you can have those meatballs another time!).
3. Grilled Chicken
For lunch: Sandwich your grilled chicken between a crusty roll and an out-of-this-world Green Goddess dressing, shred it with cold noodles and crunchy vegetables for spicy salad, and slice it to crown a Caesar salad that won't compare to your corner store's grab-and-go version.
4. Chicken Kebabs
