If you have a membership to Costco you’re most likely familiar with the awesomeness of their rotisserie chicken. It’s in the back of the store (of course it is…so you fill up your cart, right?!) and costs only $4.99. I read somewhere that they intentionally have kept the price at $4.99 even though inflation has hit pretty much every other item in the store (except the hot dog combo deal!). I mean they’ve got to be losing money off those chickens, right?!
Besides being totally affordable the chicken is super convenient. The chicken is fully cooked and ready-to-eat, making them a quick and easy meal option of busy families. I love buying 2 rotisserie chickens each time I go to Costco. When I get home I remove the chicken from the bones and package it in freezer ziploc bags for use at a later time. I love using it in recipes because it just cuts down on time and steps.
In addition, the chicken is tender and juicy with a crispy skin. The chicken is seasoned with a blend of spices and herbs, giving them a perfectly flavored taste.
Today I’m going to share with you many different recipes that you can use with 2-3 cups of the meat from the Costco rotisserie chicken. Enjoy!
