Has anyone had any problems with this chicken? It's labeled gluten free. I have had their plain chicken breasts before and they are really good. Yesterday I was running a bunch of errands and didn't have time to get home to make dinner, so I decided to pick up a whole rotisserie chicken at BJ's. It's made by Harvestland and labeled Gluten Free (as well as hormone/antibiotic free). It doesn't have any soy ingredients either, just seasonings. Anyway I ate some last night with some steamed veggies and got a headache. I thought it was just because I had eaten so late (usually I get a headache when I go without eating too long). But today for lunch I had some leftover chicken shredded with some plain rice and I immediately got a headache. The headache last night went away after about an hour and I don't seem to have any glutening symptoms, but I need to know if this was the chicken or just a coincidence. I was planning on making some chicken tortilla soup with the rest of the leftovers.

 

 

Does anyone have any comments on Bj's / Costco or Big Y Rotisserie Chickens?

This might look a bit weird, this was originally posted on an old topic about a specific brand of chicken. I thought we could start with new, fresh chicken info! :)

I have heard that the Costco chicken is gluten-free. I think lots of people on here get it - maybe they will chime or cluck about it?

Here's  my  cluck.......

Costco's &  Sam's have gluten-free  rotisserie chickens... We  don't  care for  Sam's  but  love  Costco's.....Almost  every  food/grocery  store  has  rotisserie  chicks  but  I  have  found  many  are   not  gluten-free.....By the  way  these make  awesome  chicken pot  pie......

I rarely, if ever, leave Costco without a rotisserie chicken. They are the same price (if not cheaper) than a whole, uncooked chicken and all I have to do is bring it home and eat it. I'm usually at Costco every two weeks or so. They're far better than the ones from any other local store that I've tried, and a buck or two cheaper too.

I have eaten both Rotisserie chicken offerings from BJs. No problems whatsoever.

 

They are Purdue brand and another brand (whose name escapes now but I'll look it up and get back to you)

 

We own a counter top rotisserie, but it's a giant pain in the cluck to clean and sometimes, I am a lazy bones.

 

This way is a whole lot easier. :)

I used to own one of those counter top rotisserie thingies. Best. Thing. Ever. I used it probably twice a week. My stupid ex has it now and I still want to replace it. (When it won't turn into an angry MIL over how there isn't room in the kitchen for it.) To be honest though I doubt I would ever use such a thing for chickens. It is still cheaper to buy an already roasted chicken than to buy a fresh one. They make amazingly wonderful rare beef roasts though, and are great for sausages. Great... now I want it right now.

Just wanted to add that Kroger's rotisserie chickens are not gluten free.  Which is really unfortunate for me since Kroger is super close to my house but Sam's and Costco aren't.

I've bought Kroger rotisserie chickens before. Don't recall any gluten ingredients. Did I miss something?

Smith's is a Kroger family store. While I can't speak for other Kroger family stores, the last time I looked at a Smith's brand rotisserie chicken they were safe. It has been some months though because it's just plain cheaper for me to get them at Costco.

I live in west bum-#($* Arkansas and Walmart is about all we have. They have a disclaimer on their rotisserie chicken thingy so I never buy it. I do buy it sometimes from our smaller Harps grocery. Funny... I never make it home w/ 2 drumsticks on it... one flies off and into my hand on the way home!

Happened to in Kroger and remembered this thread. So I checked and there weren't any gluten ingredients in their rotisserie chickens. 

 

Same for Walmart. Walmart rotisserie chickens used to have bread crumbs in the rub, but that was years ago. We practically live on those Walmart chickens. Ours doesn't have any disclaimers on the rotisserie chicken "thingy". Would that be the cooker, or the hot kiosk? lol.

I never even thought to look at rotisserie chickens, I always assumed they were unsafe.  I will have to grab one next time I am at sams :)  I like to cook a whole chicken and eat the legs/wings for dinner that night, and chop up and save the rest of the meat for casseroles.  Already cooked would make it MUCH easier!
