Need an easy meal idea? Here is a tasty Rotisserie Chicken Salad made with chicken from the deli.
It’s mid-September and I’m already tired from our fall schedule. Besides school, my kids have a lot of extracurricular activities. My teen is on drum line for marching band, jazz band, prepping for swim season, and working toward getting his license. My daughter has two ballet classes, guitar club, choir, scouts, and was just cast in The Nutcracker. All my son’s activities revolve around the high school, which is only a mile away. I’m most busy driving my daughter to activities, managing the house and meals, and leading the girl scout troop. Sometimes the schedule overwhelms me, especially during the late afternoon/early evening witching hour. That is the most challenging time of day for me. Planning my meals ahead of time is a must!
Even if I plan ahead, there are a few evenings a week that I don’t have much time to prep, let alone eat. I need something effortless and tasty. Nothing is easier than rotisserie chicken! Sometimes we just pull it apart and make burritos, but my family’s favorite meal with it is chicken salad.
Rotisserie Chicken Salad
I’ve been making chicken salad for years, but my family was never interested in eating it. Once I started using rotisserie chicken they got curious and decided to try it. It was one of those ‘what have I been missing out on’ moments. It’s been rotisserie chicken salad ever since.
How simple does that look?
I pick up my fully cooked Marketside Rotisserie Chicken Meal at the Walmart Deli. This meal includes a 29 oz. Rotisserie Chicken, a 2 lb. Side (Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, or Cole Slaw), and 2 Liter Coca-Cola product. I’ll also grab rolls from the bakery and some fruit for a nice meal. The deli, bakery, and produce are all next to each other in my local Walmart, so it’s easy and convenient. Walmart make meals truly effortless! Here is my meal that I enjoyed the other night.
I ate my chicken salad along with some lettuce wrapped in a tortilla, the cole slaw, some blueberries, and a glass of Coke Zero. My son had a busy afternoon/evening. He had practice after school, and then just stayed at the high school until I showed up for open house. I brought along this meal to go for him in my favorite to-go container.

Look for the Marketside Effortless Meals signs in Walmart Deli to find a great meal for your family. In addition to the Marketside Rotisserie Chicken Meal there is the Marketside Pizza Meal. This meal gives you the choice of a 16″ pepperoni pizza or 16″ five cheese pizza and 2 Liter Coca-Cola product. How easy is that? You can check out more delicious effortless meal inspiration here.
