Rotiserie Chicken Wed, 04/30/03 8:29 PM (permalink)
I have become a fan of this type of chicken. My doc indicated I could do this because of my diet. I know that Walmart is not a favorite of a lot of you, but I have found I could pick up one for $3.99, take it home and it is still hot and steamy and extremely tasty. They sell lemon chicken and BBQ. I buy the BBQ and eat the entire small bird.

I wish my oven chicken turned out that good.

    I like rotiserie chicken too. I have never had wal-mart's (although I might try it), but several grocery stores in my town sell fresh cooked rotiserie chicken. I have had the one from Bi-lo and it was very good ! Moist, tender and very flavorful ! Our Piggly-Wiggly sells the chicken too, but I have not tried theirs.


    Years ago my we had a grill that had the rotiserie attachment on it, but we never used it. My father thought that chicken should only be fried !!!

      That's interesting you would mention Walmart, because we visited a new Sam's in Cinnaminson, NJ, which is in the same center as a new Walmart. We saw a whole wall full of huge spinning chickens! We couldn't take one with because we couldn't go right home with it and it would have sat in the car for 5 hours because we were volunteering somewhere. But man they looked good and they were cheap, I forget how much!

        If you all are ever in No. VA and want a great charcoal rotis chick go to the Crisp 'n Juicy on Lee Hwy in Arlington. Pretty much the whole menu is the chicken (sides are black beans and rice, fried yucca, slaw (don't) and salad). The chicken is about 8 bucks and worth every penny. A truly spectacular bird!

          Rotis chicken at Walmart's in Knoxville is $3.99. They are a bargain and they are good, tender, flavorable and available in lemon chicken, BBQ and plain. I like each of them. I get a side of slaw and a roll and hold on. The leftover stays moist for some reason unlike my baked chicken and my baked chicken is never that flavorable.

            I too like the flavor of the Wal-Mart rotiseried chicken. I like BBQ and plain. I also like going to Famous Daves and ordering the Country Roasted Chicken. I did like KFC's the little while they had it. Kenny Rogers Roasters was good too.

              The Publix Supermarket chain has great rotiseried chicken and will even quarter them for you. The quality of the chicken varies from store to store (as do their deli and sandwich sections) but they are worth a try.

                Sundancer7. Just put a whole chicken (guts taken out) into a crock pot and cook on low for 7 hours. It gets brown and is wonderful. Add nothing else it makes enough of its own "fat". You can season it if you wish with salt, pepper, a little garlic. But I have found it delectable all by its lonesome. Enjoy!

                  RedPatti:

                  The crock pot chicken sounds like a good vehicle for slow cooking chicken. I have slow cooked chicken in the oven, between 200 to 225 degrees with great results. I am looking forward to trying my next one in the crock pot.

                    Cooking a chicken in the crockpot will really make it come out nice and brown like a rotisserie? Hard to believe.

                    However,I'm willing to give it a shot and make up some of Courgette's bread sauce. Nummy.

                      Amen to Publix! Lemon pepper is my favorite. I never can resist getting half a chicken for lunch. Bad thing is I eat and eat until I'm miserable! I do have a rotis on my grill but never wanted to fuss with trying to tie the chicken in such a way that it doesn't slide all over or simply flop breast side down and burn. Love doing eye of round roast though. The outside gets good and crispy while the inside is a nice medium rare to rare teh latter being my favoite!

                        Sundancer7 and HowardB. When I want a crisp skin after the crockpot I lay the chicken skin down as is (turn as needed) in a hot skillet. The skin crisps up and it is FABULOUS.

                          A couple of other NoVa suggestions ... Peruvian rotisserie chicken is just too good for words. In Northern Virginia, there are two excellent places: El Pollo Rico at 932 N. Kenmore St. in Arlington, VA 703-522-322 , and Edy's Chicken and Steak, Las Brasas, Leesburg Pike, Bailey's Crossroads; 820-5509.

                          Melt in your mouth -- delicious crispy skin -- great prices.

                            The rotisserie chicken at Sam's Club is very good and a good bargain. They use very large birds.

                            I like this so much I had to have a rotisserie machine. A couple of years ago I got one at Sam's. It started out listed at $149.99 which I thought was way overpriced; as Christmas approached I noticed the price was going down. I kept watching. In January, I purchased it for $49.99 .

                            It holds only one bird. No, it's not from Ron Popeil, but I can just 'set it and forget it' .

                              We buy rotisserie chickens at Sam's three at a time, then take them home and take the meat off the bones. We then freeze the meat one half chicken per bag for later use. Then we boil the bones for soup stock.

                              Our favorite use for the chicken is making quesidillas.

                                A friend and I were coming out of Sam's Club one evening and were met by a deli employee with free handouts of just done rotisserie chicken. The chickens were gifts to paying customers, an effort to familiarize and attract customers to the product.

                                Well, as someone here said, they are big birds. In fact they are almost twice the size of the chickens sold by our town's Kroger stores, and sell for less.

                                I've since bought Sam's rotisseried chickens and always enjoy them. Though it's hard to limit serving size, I can make one provide 3 good sized meals. And I'm a "good eater".

                                Incidentally, the chicken I get is seasoned with Lowry's Seasoning Salt.

                                  Sam's Club locations seem to vary a great deal in their policies. The one nearest me never has more than a half dozen demo tables in operation, tho they do give large samples, usually. Another location I sometimes visit about 10 miles away usually has 10-20 demos in operation. But I've never seen any of 'em give away a whole chicken .

                                    The vary in other ways too. The one is Lexington, Ky. is just a big store, probably the standard Sam's box. But the one I visited in Gainesville, Florida 3 years ago was very different. It had a large and serious wine department; you could buy wine by the case. And it had a seafood display area I still shake my head about. I wish I had calculated how many square foot of display case was given to displaying farm raised salmon. I had the feeling half of Florida could shop for salmon on the day I was there and they would not run out.

                                      I concur 1,000% !!! There are other Crisp & Juicy locations, as well, including one right on Route 7 in the heart of Falls Church, VA (in a former Boston Chicken, no less). Also in the DC area are at least three locations of Guapo's serving superb Peruvian-style chicken including locations as geographically (and culturally) diverse as NW, Washington, DC (Wisconsin Avenue) and Manassas, VA (Route 28).

                                      On a related note, has anyone ever eaten at La Cabana in Arlington, VA?

                                      It's also a Peruvian eatery which my wife and I dined at this weekend and had an excellent dish of chicken, peppers, Bermuda onions and french fries (yes, french fries) all tossed together in a light brown sauce and served with rice. It was preceded by an appetizer of deep fried corn kernels (resembling Beer Nuts) which were lightly salted. I'm sure this "appetizer" is standard fare but, frankly, they were awesome.

                                        I don't live in DC anymore, but my friends told me there's a new Peruvian fried chicken place in the NoVA area that caused some traffic problems. It's a 3-4 hour wait....Is it really worth that wait?? I am looking forward to check it out when I go back to visit

                                          Yup, chinesegirl, it's Pollo Campero (http://www.campero.com) and they've got two new locations in both Falls Church and Herndon, Virginia. Haven't tried it but look forward to it next time I have an entire Saturday to wait in line.

                                            Isn't rotisserie and broasted chicken one and the same?

                                              The place is apparently very close to the hearts of ex-pats from El Salvador and Guatemala, which accounts for the lines and long waits. But for anyone else, well, the reports I've heard give it only so-so grades. I'll give it a try to see for myself, though my allegiance to El Pollo Rico is strong and won't likely break.

Haven't tried it but look forward to it next time I have an entire Saturday to wait in line.

                                                NO !! rotisserie is done on a spit that is rotated in an oven or grill (ever seen the Ronco rotisserie infomercial ?)

                                                Broasted is fried in oil under pressure !!

                                                Both great and tasty, but very much different !!!

                                                    Has the El Pollo Rico moved? The time I was in the area, i couldn't find it... I used to know it near by the courthouse area, in a little plaza that has a 7/11.

                                                      Yes, it moved, or rather it was pushed out by a developer, probably about a year ago. It's original location, shoe-horned into that impossible-to-navigate plaza, was always part of its charm. The new location is in Ballston on Kenmore Street, which crosses between Wilson Blvd. and Fairfax Drive. The chicken is as good as ever, especially when washed down with an Inca Cola.

                                                          Shoot, if I don't get to my Sam's club no later than 4PM all the chickens are gone!! The Weis stores here are selling a rotiserire bird that I believe they call a Killer Chicken (Shown in pictures wearing boxing gloves ETc) It's the size of a Perdue oven stuffer. I bought one once, it was good but I thought I'd never come to the end of it.

                                                            BJ's rotisserie chickens are the size of turkeys--it's the only reason I'd ever consider spending the money for a membership because the ones you get in A&P or Stop&Shop are half the size for the same price.
