The juiciest, already seasoned, Rotisserie Chicken at Costco for only $4.99!
Members of our group on Facebook mentioned the Rotisserie Chicken from Costco is their favorite. At my last trip, I had to find out.
We went to the back by the meat section and found them. To my surprise they were $4.99! I grabbed one by the sides and set it in the cart. It was hot so be careful when you pick it up.
Will it compare to our favorite 18″ Pizza for $9.99?
We brought it home for dinner, I steamed up some veggies to serve with it. Our dinner cost was about $6.50 for two! And it only took about 5 minutes to make!
Plus, we continued to eat this Rotisserie chicken for the rest of the week. I put it in Burritos, Nachos, Pasta, and saved the rest of a soup.
The greatest thing about the Rotisserie Chickens is that how you can re purpose the meat for several meals after depending on your family and portion size.

Another interesting bit, is that Costco injects their Rotisserie Chickens with Saline Solution. This is a different approach to an old fashioned brine.
Brining your meat leads to a more succulent and tender protein. Using salt in the form of a brine rather than just sprinkling over the top, ensures that the salt reaches the majority of the meat.
