Make boring chicken a thing of the past with 30 drool-inducing Whole30 Leftover Chicken Recipes
“Ugh, if I have to eat plain chicken and broccoli again…”
Sound familiar? As one of the most popular proteins out there, it’s not surprising that we get tired of it – especially when we’re making it the same way over and over…over. And unfortunately when we’re tired of it, it tends to go to waste. Well, we can’t have that, so we wanted to help you use up that leftover chicken and add a little variety to the mix while we’re at it.
Today, with the help of our friend Real Food with Dana, we’ve rounded up a total of 30 Whole30 recipes that call for cooked chicken. We’ve also included a few from some of our other favorite food bloggers (Physical Kitchness, Whole Kitchen Sink, Paleo Running Momma, The Wooden Skillet and Little Bits of) because there are just so many ways to spice up chicken!
We realize that 30 recipes are a lot of to choose from, so if you’re not sure where to start, be sure to start simple by cooking up a batch of our Instant Pot Shredded Chicken. The beauty of this meal prep staple is that it can later be morphed into nearly any delectable chicken dish (such as the 30 listed below)! In addition, if you’re doing a September Whole30, this is the perfect base for a “whole foods” meal.
Speaking of Whole30, September marks the start of another round for those who feel like they need a “reset” of sorts from the all the fun that was had during the summer months. As a refresher, the Whole30 is a pretty much what it sounds like – 30 days of eating whole foods. The program, created by Melissa Hartwig & Dallas Hartwig, has a set of firm ground rules that guide the way you eat. It’s not a prescribed diet per se, but rather a template into which you plug the allowed foods into to create your meals and snacks.Never eat boring chicken again with these 30 @Whole30 Leftover Chicken Recipes #realfood Click To Tweet
