YouTube star Laura Vitale is joining TODAY to share her favorite recipes for preparing — and repurposing — a whole chicken. She shows us how to cook a perfectly roasted chicken and use the leftovers to make spicy Buffalo chicken flatbreads and chicken carnitas tacos.

Roasted Chicken with Chimichurri Sauce

A simply roasted chicken is comfort food at its very best. It takes very little effort to prepare and leftovers are even better!

Buffalo Chicken Flatbread

Flatbreads are one of my favorite thing to make because they're a blank canvas to decorate with any toppings you like! They also make a great base for leftovers and make them feel like a whole new meal.

Chicken Carnitas Tacos

This is one of my favorite ways to utilize leftover chicken. I love to do this for my meal prep during the week because it's naturally lean, so flavorful and holds up well in the fridge.
