What about Rotisserie Chickens?

Who doesn’t love a rotisserie chicken? It’s so easy to pick one up for a quick week night meal.  Especially when you buy at the warehouse stores you can get these chickens for $5.  They are big, juciy and delicious.

It really is a great buy! I picked one up at the store yesterday and it makes for a no fuss meal.  There are so many things you can do with a rotisserie chicken.  You can serve as your main protein for your dinner.  Add a couple of sides or a salad and you have a complete meal in no time.

You may hear about rotisserie chickens being bad for you or unhealthy.  I’m not saying it’s a perfectly healthy meal.  Obviously the skin is high in fat and the chicken itself is rather high in sodium.  I personally feel it’s ok in moderation just like anything.  To keep it slightly healthier I just remove the chicken skin when I eat mine.  This isn’t something I’d eat on the daily, but it’s a good go to and quick dinner option.

I use the rotisserie chicken for a lot of dishes as well.  You can do so many other recipes with the chickens.  I’ve made everything from chicken salad to chicken chili.  Here are a few ideas of what you can do with your next rotisserie chicken.  Look for recipes in the future for how I use my leftovers.
