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 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 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 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!
Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy We'll all float on, alright Well we'll float on good news is on the way...
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.
