Grocery Store Rotisserie Chicken
0

24 posts in this topic

I thought I remembered a thread about rotisserie chicken at grocery stores, but I couldn't find it...

I'm really wanting to just buy a chicken tonight since DH is working late and I don't want to cook, does anyone know if at least some/most are gluten-free?

The stores I have available are:

Randalls (they are a Safeway division and use their generics)

HEB

Whole Foods (please don't make me go there, I don't want a $300 chicken :rolleyes: )

Sam's Club

Central Market (see whole foods)

Thanks! :)

If you can find any that are Golden Plump then they are gluten-free. We get those all the time. Or call one of the stores and ask what brand they have for their chickens. Then call that company. Good luck!

I ate a chicken like that last night too. Didn't get a chance to cook so dh picked it up on his way home. The ingredients looked okay so I went for it. I feel okay after eating it :)

I get mine from Busch's (a Spartan store) and they are fine. Just chicken and some herbs. I also have a Meijer near me but they inject a "solution" and I don't care for the taste - don't even know if it's safe or not, but it tastes icky to me.

I think even Boston Market chicken is safe.

I know Sam's Club is not gluten-free.

Do you have a Boston Market near you?

I can only speak for the Canadian contingent. I have a gluten-free list from Safeways in Canada for their safeway and select brand items. I actually had the Safeway store in Montgomery in Calgary make a copy to keep in their store in case I leave my list at home which I often do. So, I know their rotisserie chicken is fine.

I do have a boston market near me, it's just so dang expensive.

I forgot a grocery store, we have an Albertson's too.

Thanks for telling me about Sam's!

I guess I'll have to call the store and ask what brand their chickens are...

I got a cooked chicken in Costco that I read the label on. It listed the allergy items and wheat was not listed. I did not get sick. I also buy unseasoned from my local store (not in your area) and only once was I glutened and I think that was from cc. After all, the chickens are put on a rotisserie and the juices can drop down onto the next chicken. I now try to avoid the skin.

I called the Randall's people and since it's Safeway, the chickens are gluten-free, and they only have one flavor to worry about. Excellent! She's also sending me the Safeway gluten-free list. More excellence!

For any of you that may be in Texas or some parts of Louisiana, the HEB customer service lady is checking on the status of their chickens for me, so I'll keep y'all posted!

Thanks for all your help! :D

Albertsons (Acme near me) are very Celiac friendly--they have their own gluten-free list that they will send you. I'll bet if you called your local one, they could tell you if theirs is safe. I emailed them recently about a meat product--the bacon-wrapped filets. A rep called me with the answer--and he was a Celiac, too! Good luck on the chicken quest!--Oh, Sam's is not safe--the first ingredient (I think) is wheat starch!

We used to get rotisserie chickens all the time, but I'm just making roast chicken at home now. It's much easier than I had expected. Rinse it, plop in a pan on top of some sliced onions and chuck it in the oven for an hour. If you have energy, stuff it with garlic, onion slices, lemon slices, fistfuls of parsley, etc. just don't eat the stuffing (it takes too long to come to a safe temperature) and surround it with sliced carrots and potatoes drizzled with a little olive oil before you bake it.

No gluten, and no last-minute trip to the grocery store if you buy it during your big "stock-up" grocery trip. While it bakes, you can open the mail, change clothes, help kids with homework, etc. If everyone is starving, start with fresh fruit!

I actually just went through this same thing this afternoon - looking for a rotisserie chicken. Boston Market chickens/turkeys are gluten free but they do contain milk, if that is an issue for you (it is for us). My other grocery store carries chickens/turkeys from Perdue. They are also gluten/dairy free but the store cooks them and they cook them alongside other items containing gluten so the issue of cross contamination is pretty high. So, I guess it's back to basics for us and roasting our own. No big deal - I used to do it all the time - just more time consuming and it's not that often that I'm home in the afternoon to be able to do it.

Purdue Short Cuts are gluten free. I cook up a bag of Success rice, heat up a veggie and the Short Cuts and dinner is read in 10 minutes! :D

Tyson roasted chickens are the best! And if you microwave them they stay moist, unlike some of the store-roasted chickens which sit under hot lights all day. I have gotten sick from store-roasted chickens - some have unidentified spices on them and that was probably it. Still trying to educate the husband, who cooks once or twice a week and likes to bring them home.

Here's the crockpot rotisserie chicken recipe that's been all the rage at my other fave chat room... copykat.com:

Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken

1 Whole Chicken (I cooked a 6 pounder)

Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Lawry's Seasoned Salt (no substitutes)

Aluminum foil

Clean chicken inside and out. Spray with olive oil spray.

Sprinkle inside and out with Lawry's.

Spray inside of crock with cooking spray. Note: Do not put any water in the crockpot.

Roll some wads of aluminum foil into balls and put them in the bottom of the crock. The chicken is going to sit on these.

Put chicken back side down in crock on top of aluminum balls.

Cook on High (will not come out the same on low), 4-6 hours

I also use some fresh herbs (sprig of rosemary, sage) laying on top. I put 1/2 lemon & 1/2 onion in cavity. I use the rest of the lemon and squeeze the juice on the chicken before I spray it.

Note: I've not used Lawry's seasoning... I've just dumped tons of seasonings of my own on there... but it comes out very moist.

Yes! Also chicken parts, but use them with skin and bone, and if you will be slow cooking them all day, start with them frozen.

Spray the inside of the crockpot with non-stick spray, add about half of the chicken parts, pour gluten-free barbecue sauce over, add the rest of the chicken, pour more sauce, cover, cook on low for 6-8 hours.

I find this works best with legs and thighs. You can also do the same thing with turkey legs and thighs, if they will fit in your cooker. Enjoy!

I realize this is an old thread but had to comment. Went to Fred Meyers yesterday and wanted to buy a rotisserie chicken and every flavor has wheat in them. I was so bummed. I am roasting my own chicken in the oven now as I type and it smells so good. : )

Only other grocery store nearby is Walmart. Haven't looked at theirs but usually I don't like the flavor.

What about Costco? You almost can't buy a raw chicken for the price of theirs cooked up here. : )

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
