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. : )

    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
