9 Ways Amanda's Turned Dinner's Roast Chicken Into Lunch

October 17, 2016

To celebrate this week’s launch of Amanda and Merrill’s book, A New Way to Dinner, we’re diving into the archives to revisit times they ripped out a page from their dinner playbooks for us. Loved leftovers, brown bag lunches, and roast chicken awaits.

We all know roast chicken is the hero of weeknight dinners: Roast over the weekend, and eat your way through its parts every which way all week. Our co-founder Amanda sure has done this more than once.

If you're looking for a little inspiration to do the same, here are a handful of ways Amanda's turned chicken into her kids' brown bag lunches. Suppress your jealousy.

While these recipes use oven-fried chicken and chicken with charmoula, you could easily make them with your roast chicken.
