Everyone I know on the Dukan Diet lives on rotisserie chicken, which makes sense since it is very versatile and incredibly easy for all types of quick meals. However instead of stocking up on rotisserie chickens that usually have a lot of strange ingredients and preservatives (check out the label) try roasting your own chicken at home at the beginning of the week. You control what goes into the chicken and can cook up all sorts of delicious flavors. Lately my favorite has been this spicy lemon roasted chicken.
