    Walmart rotisserie chicken

    I'm looking to get my BF down, and sometimes I pick up a Walmart rotisserie chicken when I'm on the road or in a hurry. I'd never eat fried, and I wanted to check and see if others also eat Walmart chicken? Assuming I take the skin off, I'm hoping it's an acceptable lowfat option. It *does* seem greasy, but it can't be grease, since it's not fried. I'm hoping it's just natural juices.

    Any input appreciated.

    I was wondering the same thing. If you look up "Rotisserie Chicken Nutrition Info" the results aren't too good. But, my question is why? I mean, do they inject the things with lard or something??

    Good question I have noticed when I buy one of these at my local grocery store that there is alot of "liquid" in the bottom of the container. I just put a large knife or fork in the body cavity and pick it up and out of the container and let the liquid drain. my dog gets the skin and the liquid.

    I have a pretty good feeling that sodium is too blame in these chickens. I think that they soak them in salt water or something like that to plump them up. Of course they do this with cheap chickens also.

    I did an experiment a week ago or so and made a chicken in a crock pot. I added what equalled 1 lbs of water.

    When it was cooked there was 3.5 lbs of liquid in the pot. So this leads some credence to my thinking.

    Its really the skin where you are going to run into trouble so if you take that off t is fine to eat it. I ate rotisserie chicken from the store everyday for over a year and lost 130 lbs in the process so it cant be all bad.

    The most dangerous one for me is at the mexican market up the street.

    A whole chicken with tortillas, rice, beans, salsa is $6.99 The chicken by itself is only $4.99. They also make every kind of burrito you can imagine for $2.69 and 15 pieces of fried chicken are $6.99.

    This is a dangerous place.

    I will say that after eating a moderate amount of the chicken, boy, am I full! You'd think I had eaten a plate of FRIED chicken. Part of me wonders about that - I hope it's the broth or something that filled me up and not some "secret" *make a frowny face here* ingredient that did it.

    They are all different at different stores. Walmart's aren't as bad as say, Kroger, but they're both "flavored" (read sodium and other crap) and I don't care for either. BJ's has 3+lbs and are the most natural tasting, biggest and cleanest rotisserie chickens around here. For $6...can't go wrong for the convenience when you want one.

    And I don't worry about sodium, anyway.

    Yup.. but you wish it was real lard
    it's an hydrogenated oil, pretty much the same they do with frozen french fries , they are drenched in this chemical to help uniform color..

    Is that **** even chicken? do you guys really buy your meats at walmart? have you noticed they are the only place that sell injected beef (it's for color and flavor) ? at least here in NY

    the idea is that they can keep that **** on the shelves much longer because it looks always fresh

    That is probably because it was previously frozen and defrosted, excessive water is a sign of being thawed, even when they labeled it as fresh it was probably frozen in the store
    hopefully only once

    The reason why it's so juicy is
    cuz the chicken isn't laying in a
    pan it's spinning so the
    juices stay in the meat. I mAke this 3 nights a
    week and we had it tonight too. U should check Wally world for
    the ronco
    showtime model. Worth it's weight in gold.

    I have a rotisserie option in my oven and cook two chickens every sunday evening after stuffing the cavity with onions and 1/2 lemon and basting it in whatever takes my fancy at the time.

    It is succulent and juicey because of what Julie says - constant basting of juices and the juice within the meat stays there.

    Personally, doing a keto style diet I say bring on the juice - YUM!

    I buy them from costco for $6.99 1Kg chicken.
    I will remove all the skin and any fat that I can put my fingers on. I have been losing weight on it for over a year.
    not the healtiest food but when you have no time to cook or you are on the run it is way better than the alternative.

    This has been bothering me since I first read it. I contacted a friend who works at Walmart and he said that the long list of crap on the ingedient list is a rub. Nothing is injected (by Walmart) into the chicken.

    Same answer from the manager at Publix (a local grocery store).

    I was glad to hear this because I eat a lot of these chickens and I don't eat the skin anyway.

    So if they don't inject the salt water then does the chicken plant do it for heavier weight/price per pound.

    most of these chickens are delicious...but yes, they are all high in salt and please, keep in mind, that Chicken, NATURALLY, has a higher fat content than many people think.....

    and it depends on what part of that chicken you are eating.....the dark meat, as one might guess, is "juicier" because it is higher in fat.....

    salt water injection should be banned, or at least forced to declare on the labels - it's theft by any other name.

    Not tried WM's brand but the costo $5 whole chickens are amazing, nice and juicy and huge for the price. Add a little BBQ sauce and throw it back in the oven for a few mins = perfection

    There was a thread here sometime maybe a year ago where a similar question was asked. I don't remember the exact reply, but someone wrote in who worked in a store making the chickens and she said something ( which was bad) about the rub, which made the chicken less "healthy" from a nutritional standpoint than it would seem. Looking at this list, I think it may be the "partially hydrogenated" oil. I do know that we don't want hydrogenated oils in our diets as bodybuilders. And she pointed out that pulling off the skin still doesn't totally eliminate the oil from what you are digesting because it seeps into the meat anyway before you buy it.

    I paid particular attention to that post because at the time I was buying probably 2 or 3 rotisserie chickens a month at the store. This year in an eight month off season, I have bought only one the entire time and am eating marinated at home grilled chicken and turkey breasts instead.

    I am not saying it is wrong to be buying those chickens, but beware that it is not as healthy as you may think even with the skin off and really should be off limits if you are dieting.

    When you look at the nurtional label the fat is quite high but that is assuming you it the skin which I doubt many of us do... at least I never do. I usually cut into the breast meat and tear that off the bone and eat it.

    This type of chicken is not my staple but I do eat it once in awhile if I don't have any chicken breasts to grill myself at home.

    Thumbs up

    Ronco Rotisserie!! I buy my chicken and do them in that. I put my own seasonings on it and stuff it with celery, onions and garlic cloves. A good rub down with extra virgin olive oil adds to the taste. I have seen those chicken at Sam Club when I go shopping but have never bought one. I love cooking so I usually do my own fowl.

    Ah - I already do the onion and garlic trick - celery up there too will be yum!

    Thx for the tip!
