Back-to-School No Bake Challenge and Giveaway

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Recently, I was invited to take the Sam’s Club Back-to-School No Bake Challenge. They asked me to create a no bake meal for my family during the busy back-to-school.  I was given a $25 Sam’s Club gift card to pick up the ingredients.

I figured a great way to begin my no bake meal was with one of Sam’s Clubs rotisserie chickens.  It can be a tasty foundation for so many recipes.  I love to use them to simplify meal preparation.  From there, I decided to use the chicken to make one of my favorite salads. This is also one that my family will eat.  Usually they turn up their noses at salad for dinner, but not when it comes to this bbq chicken salad.  I have included the recipe below using the Sam’s Club items.

So, here is what I got from Sam’s Club for my no bake dinner!

My total was $23.24 before tax.

I keep a well stocked pantry so the remaining items needed for the salad, I had on hand.  However, many of those other items are available at Sam’s Club.

With the remaining baguette and half rotisserie chicken, you could whip up some quick chicken salad for lunch the next day!

Another idea I had for a no bake meal is to shredded the rotisserie chicken. Add some bbq sauce to it and just warm it on the stove or in the microwave (were not cooking, just warming so it still counts as no bake).  Then serve them on your favorite buns or rolls from Sam’s Club.

You can also get other meal ideas from Sam’s Club’s recipe page including Gluten Free Rotisserie Chicken BLT Lettuce Cups and Rotisserie Pulled Chicken Tacos from Chef Molly Hawks.

Not only is Sam’s Club a great place to shop for your weekly meals, but I also love to get items there for school lunch and after school snacks.  My favorites item their already washed and pre-cut apples.  They are perfect for lunch and snacks!

I also have a Back-to-School No Bake Challenge giveaway for you from Sam’s.  Leave a comment on this post about what your no bake meal would be.  Then one lucky reader will be picked at random to receive a Fit and Fresh Design Lunch Bag with food storage from Sam’s Club. You have until Thursday Sept. 27 at midnight (MST) to enter.

  2. I would definitely be making some Simple Peruvian Ceviche. It’s ready in about 30 minutes and is amazingly delicious!

  3. I love to make sandwiches with the rotissere chicken but our family loves to eat just the chicken with a roll and some mixed veggies on the side. Pretty simple and very easy.

  4. My go to no-bake dinner is a Chicken Taco wrap made from a rotisserie chicken, cream cheese infused with taco seasoning, a little bit of beans, cheese, sour cream, and tomatoes! YUMMY!!

  5. My no bake meal would be pan-fried tacquitos with Mexican rice and refried beans 🙂 *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  6. I would make the pulled chicken bbq sandwiches. That is one of our favorite meals…along with some coleslaw and sweet potato fries (also available at Sam’s) you’ve got an amazing meal!!

  7. We throw an awesome party on Halloween every year and try our best to come up with a fun theme for our costumes.

    1. I’m such an airhead! Wrong thread! My favorite, cool, no-bake meal is just a regular salad – though I’ve always been a salad lover. I often have chicken strips cooked and waiting in the fridge for salad night.

  8. It would include a rotisserie chicken, on a pita or Naan, with the veggies of choice and some kind of dressings (like Ranch, Italian or Vinaigrette of choice). You can leave them open faced or as a pocket. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  9. My husband and I love having a salad for dinner. It tastes great and takes just a little time to prepare. Thanks for the giveaway.

  10. I have recently discovered a love for kalamata olives, so there have been many chopped salads here lately.

  11. I love to make Chicken salad with canned chicken, green onions, mayonnaise, celery and grapes and served on croissant rolls. My whole family loves them!!

  12. Sandwiches are my go-to no bake meal. I’ve come up with some great ingredient combinations. And it’s a great way to use leftovers.
