Pro Chef Turns 2 Rotisserie Chickens Into 4 Meals For Under $12 | The Smart Cook | Epicurious

Chef Dan Giusti returns to show us just how much is possible with a couple of supermarket rotisserie chickens and some ingenuity. Watch as Dan prepares a day’s worth of meals, each taking store-bought rotisserie chicken from the ordinary to something unexpectedly delicious. The best part? All 4 dishes will cost you under $12 in total.

Dan Giusti, formerly the head chef of Noma, is the founder of Brigaid, a company that places professional chefs into institutional food spaces like public schools. Brigaid chefs bring their experience, knowledge and technique to institutional kitchens to improve food quality. Similar to how Brigaid works–by bringing professional chefs into institutional spaces to apply their knowledge to new environments– The Smart Cook intends to do the same by bringing Chef Dan’s experience and knowhow into your home with delicious recipes prepared on a budget.
