Costco rotisserie chicken

Post by Pete12 » Thu Jul 28, 2016 6:15 pm

Let's face it- if you don't pick up a $5 rotisserie Chicken each time you visit Costco then you're insane! :oops:

However I find it gets a bit boring after a while... I usually just reheat it and serve with some rice and veg for a quick weeknight meal.

What do you guys do with YOUR Costco chickens to keep your meals interesting???

We dice the rotisserie chicken and mix it with the GoodFoods cranberry almond chicken salad, also purchased at Costco. That's quite good on sandwiches. Occasionally, if we don't have any chicken salad, we just cut the rotisserie chicken into slices for sandwiches. Apparently, all roads lead to sandwiches.

To break the monotony I'm training one I picked up today. "Sit" and "stay" are coming along very nicely.

pull off leg, thigh, and wing and add a vegetable or sweet potatoe and thats a meal.

repeat for meal number 2.

for whats left (in order of what i usually do):

1) dice everything thats left and make chicken soup. plenty of rotisserie chicken soup receipes on the web. garlic, onion, pepper, carrots, celery, couple cans of beans, frozen corn, dice a can of chipotles (this makes all the difference). leftover collard greens if i have any. chicken stock. depending on how much stuff i add i get up to a week of lunches from that.

2) chicken burritos

3) sandwiches

I dip it into super-hot BBQ sauce and have it with a side of mashed potatoes. It's tasty.

1. What kind of BBQ sauce do you use? I am always searching for better BBQ sauce
2. Plain mashed potatoes? or with gravy? Mashed potatoes & good gravy -- can't be beat. I am starting to salivate as I write this.

We buy the 2 pack of chickens from costco & cook on a charcoal BBQ. There is something about the precooked chicken we didn't care for, but it has been years since we bought them so I don't recall exactly what it was that we didn't like.

I am certain the raw chicken is more expensive than the cooked ones, and mine take way more time.

Kinder' BBQ Sauce. Extra hot for me and mild for wife. We just do plain mashed potatoes. Nothing fancy but does the trick. I'm getting hungry.

I occasionally buy one when I feel lazy but it is over salty, has quite a few preservatives in it (potassium nitrate?) and the wings and legs which are my favorite, tend to be overcooked. As with just about all modern chickens, the rather tasteless giant breasts dominate the whole bird .

    just pull pieces and eat simply on their own with a veggie,
    dice up and toss in a green salad as a full meal,
    cook onions and peppers first till soft then throw in chicken and taco seasoning for the last minute for easy fajitas,
    shred or dice and alternate with layers of corn tortillas and cheese to make enchiladas or an enchilada casserole of course with homemade enchilada sauce,
    dice up with onions, celery, garlic, mayonnaise, and raisins for chicken salad sandwiches or just in a cup with crunchy veggies on the side if being healthy

I go to my Costco early and am usually there as they open the doors a few minutes before 10 a.m. I usually head straight for the rotisserie chicken because there's always one or two guys that are loading up 25 - 50 rotisserie chickens EACH into boxes on a couple of those Costco shopping dollies. I'm sure they must be connected with a snak shop or restaurant but it's not really my business. I'm sure they figured out that the cooked rotisserie chicken is likely the cheapest chicken per pound in the place.

My favorite lunch recipe is a warm Costco rotisserie chicken bagel sandwich made with a warmed Costco onion bagel. Just add a little lettuce and a couple of tomato slices. Chicken legs, wings, and slices make up an entree for dinner with vegetables and maybe rice. The leftover chicken gets diced up and used in either a spaghetti or pasta dish the next evening.

The only better deal than the $5 chicken at Costco is the $1.50 hot dog and drink. Both are glorious!

The three of us use up about half of the chicken at the first meal. Debone the rest of the meat and use in a stir fry with onions and bell peppers.

Personally I think its insane to buy chickens raised in conditions where a $5 chicken can be profitable (yes I know it might be a loss leader).

Well they are at least almost certainly raised in a huge barn packed full with chickens. Much better conditions than layer hens in cages though. At least it seems there is momentum to at least go to cage free eggs from many large retailers and restaurant chains. Cage free is a step up but still about the same conditions as the broiler chickens get (large crowded barns)

My goal this year is to get all of our meat from either directly from the farmer, the wild (fish and shellfish), or from our CSA (pastured chickens and a turkey almost directly from the farmer). It does cost much more though.

1) chicken soup, 30m in pressure cooker
2) chicken jambalaya. Pull off meat, make 30m broth of carcas, then make jambalaya as usual, adding meat back on at end.

Ignoring the chicken's quality of life, I must be one of the few bogleheads who really doesn't like the Costco chickens.

For lack of a better description, they taste way to hot-doggy - salty / preserved / etc. I'd much rather buy a fresh chicken (Costco is great for this!) and roast it - while it takes a bit, it's basically hands off (preheat oven, season bird, let it roast until it's done).

Even better, if have rotisserie feature on grill, rub
a little salt on outside, affix to rotisserie bar and tie with butcher twine, and let rotate on rotisserie around 90 minutes depending on size. Great home made rotisserie chicken.

Find a recipe online for 'creamed turkey'. Basically it is turkey/chicken in a white sauce with veggies. Service it over rice, mashed potatoes, or toast. Delicious!

I make enchiladas also or add it to a salad.

I really don't like reheating it directly as the white meat gets pretty dry.

I find if you leave it in the container on the counter it stays warm for hours. I'm not sure from a food safety perspective how long you can do that for, but I've pushed it.

Ended up making chicken salad this weekend, I diced up the left overs and added some Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil, and some Mrs. Dash. I didn't add any salt as the chicken is pretty salty already. It was quite good :happy

Reading from the replies, I might be one of the few exceptions... but I don't really like them (nor Sams')

I feel like they don't "chew" like real chicken. It tastes as if it lacks "density" and too soft to be actual meat. Kind of the same concept how McDonald's claims their meat is 100% beef but when you bite into their meat verses one of those 90/10 burger meat from the grocery store, one tastes more like actual beef than the other.

Anyhow, my family buys them sometimes though. We usually just eat the meat by itself just as snacks. There are of course leftovers. We rip them to pieces and use it for various soups in the future.

Agreed, and there is a reason for that. They both contain sodium phosphates (when I checked the labels) which does a few things, including altering the structure of the protein and helping with moisture retention. Lots of meats are treated with this.

I agree and choose not to buy dirt cheap chicken. The FDA admitted 70% of chicken contains arsenic from the feed.

I buy Coleman farms chicken from Costco or Fresh thyme. It's worth the extra $ to me. Local/CSA would be even better.

Be careful with stats like this as they are likely from someone pushing an agenda. One form of arsenic naturally occurring and present in a lot of what we eat. What matters is the % of chicken that have unsafe levels of arsenic and if the "safe" level is truly safe or not.

Also the price of a chicken isn't necessarily connected to how well its treated or what is used to feed it.

This thread inspired me. Went out and bought young chicken from Whole Paycheck ( Costco too far a drive unless also buying wine, Whole Paycheck does sell quality chicken at a price) and it is now rotating on rotisserie for home made rotisserie chicken. Thanks for the idea.

Stubbs. Original or Honey-Pecan, but you can't go wrong with any of them.

For wing sauce (if you make your own wings) Sparky's is hard to beat, but you have to order online most likely.
