For the first dinner, there is no prep. Just purchase a precooked rotisserie chicken at the deli and add side dishes/salads of your choice. Reserve remaining chicken including juices, skin, and carcass and refrigerate.
Place leftover chicken and 3 cups of water in a large stock pot and bring to a boil to cook chicken off the bone.
Remove chicken from the bones cut into pieces. Mix 2 cups of the chicken broth with the soup in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Mix melted margarine, flour, milk, and salt in a separate bowl. Put chicken in bottom of a 9 x 12 inch casserole dish. Pour can of drained mixed vegetables over chicken. Pour broth mixture over the vegetables and chicken.
Spoon dough mixture over top. Bake at 425 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.

In a pinch for time? Too warm to cook? Instead of grilling chicken after a long day's work, stop by the market deli for a roasted chicken. Whip up a package of mashed potatoes and a second veggie, and feed your family in less than twenty minutes.
I also enjoy adding the chicken to a garden salad with fresh herbs, Monterrey jack cheese, tomatoes, red/yellow pepper, dried cranberries, cucumbers, other favorite fixings, and dressing.
If you find them on sale and your budget allows, buy extras. Slice and peel the meat into a container or bag and freeze. Use the chicken for enchiladas, chicken, and noodles casserole, chicken Alfredo pizza, soup, sandwiches, or any other favorite creation. It's great for extra meals or packing lunches. This works great for our house! Enjoy.
