So you bought that rotisserie chicken but still have a little of the meat leftover after you have de-boned it.

Here is an idea that might surprise you. Combine a cup of raw rice, a cup of chopped chicken and a handful of raw spinach.

Add to your rice cooker, two cups of chicken stock and turn it on. In 20 minutes, you will have a lovely rice casserole that is delicious and just about as inexpensive a meal as you can come up with.

If you want to make it a bit more Southern, add cheese. Actually, there are a lot of other ingredients you can add if the mood strikes you: onions, bell pepper, cubed sweet potato, already browned pork — anything or just about any leftover vegetable you might have.
