Gluten Free Rotisserie Chicken
0

16 posts in this topic

I see a lot of topics about gluten-free rotisserie chicken (the kind that is cooked in the deli and sold in paper bags) but I can't find a list anywhere. I know Costco is gluten-free and that Whole Foods does not contain gluten ingredients but carries a warning. Anyone know about Safeway and other store brands? It would be nice to have options.

I get mine at Meijer. There's only 3 or 4 ingredients, unless you get the flavored ones (barbecue, lemon chicken)I haven't checked those.

The only one I know about is Giant grocery store chickens and they are NOT gluten free. I always buy Costco's, even if I go in just for the chicken. Yes, I've learned how to go into Costco for just one thing. ;) The cashiers always comment on it and I tell them that this chicken is gluten free, bigger than Giant's, and cheaper. What's not to like? B)

I worked in the deli at Kroger. You should be able to eat any of the rotisserie chickens there. They don't put any other flavorings on other than the barbeque sauce and lemon pepper, and I believe both of those are gluten free. To be on the safe side, ask the deli workers, they'll help you out.

I remember checking at Smith's and seem to think they were gluten free although I didn't buy one at the time. They're cheaper at Costco so I just go there.

Can you show some proof that the Giant rotisserie's aren't gluten free? I eat them all the time and have no problems...the ingrediants don't lead me to believe that they're not.

Could it be possible that there are different Giant groceries? Different main company? For example, we have PriceChoppers here in KC. I googled them for something and found there is another chain of Price Choppers, in another part of the country, that don't seem to be related. Also, here, some of our Price Choppers are owned by different people, like a franchise. It's probably not as rigid as a McDonalds franchise so they may be able to fix the chicken or carry different items - whatever works for thier neighborhood.

I think the best plan is to use these suggestions but check the ingredients and how the food is handled at your local store.

No, of course I can't "show proof" since I'm not planning to buy one so that I can send you the label. You'll have to take my word for it that the ingredients say "allergen: wheat". :rolleyes:

I'm not trying to be snarky here but I don't understand when people question things like this. Recently someone else did it when I posted about the Goya Maria gluten free cookies. I can read. If something says, in BIG LETTERS "GLUTEN FREE" then I'm going to report it as gluten free. Similarly when something says "allergen: wheat" I'm going to tell you all that this is what it says. You can do what you want, and read your own labels. I'm merely answering the question that the OP asked.

What is gluten free in one area of the country/world, may not be in the other. I would assume that large grocery chain stores have various suppliers, who may use different ingredients in their products.

I don't know that as a fact, but it makes sense to me. B)

Well I'm sorry....but my rotisserie chickens at Giant do not say that, which is why I was asking! Maybe they've changed things, but I'm looking at one directly in front of me as we speak.

People question things because a lot of people make claims on this board with no proof and a lot of the times, the information isn't correct, hence, my asking where you got your information. You didn't specify that you saw the "allergin: wheat" statement, so I was curious if you heard from Giant corporate or something. All you said was that Giant ones were not gluten free, no back up to that statement. It's important for many people that you explain where your information is coming from.

Lisa, are they frozen and you cook at home? I'm open to that too. Just couldn't quite tell if that's what you mean or if your store uses Perdue brand.

I was hoping someone had information on Safeway. Safeway and Costco are really the only two chains we have in our area. I think there is a Lucky but it's not really in the way of any place I am coming or going. Safeway is the easiest when I'm in a hurry. The costco's in San Jose are total Zoo's - all the time :) You don't get in and out in less than 30 there...I emailed Safeway a while back and never heard anything so I'll try again.

PS - Thanks for all of the replies. I miss Kroger - they were always great and very helpful.

Nope. They are rotissarized in the deli section of our local Food Lion, and packaged hot in a little tote box, and labeled Purdue. Pretty good, but not too sure you have a Food Lion in your new neck of the woods.

If you are ok with maltodextrin and caramel color (neither of them say derived from wheat) and "natural flavors" you may try Safeway. I bought one there when I first went gluten-free - I screened it then and thought it was ok. I've not tried asking for more clarification on the natural flavors.

I live in AZ, don't know if the flavors vary.

I'm new to this, (2 days) but my local Giant receives precooked chickens and puts them in the plastic containers marked Giant. The chickens are from Perdue and they were able to give me the original Perdue sticker. Obviously, it's important how they're handled in store. The clerks were very patient as it took many questions to get the info I needed and they asked what Celiac was. For whatever it's worth, at least those 2 will change gloves before repackaging the chickens :) so I agree it's wise to ask what brand chicken your store uses and how they handle it.

Could it be possible that there are different Giant groceries? Different main company? For example, we have PriceChoppers here in KC. I googled them for something and found there is another chain of Price Choppers, in another part of the country, that don't seem to be related.

Hi! I'm in KC, too.

There are different chains of grocerys named Giant. And I think they have Price Chopper in the northeast? It's not the same company as ours.

Do we have Giant groceries here?

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I received the amended records in the mail. I don' think the doctor even read my email with the amendment request since she only corrected one statement I never said...the statement I gave as example while briefly talking to her on the phone the other day. So, I called the office to inquire why the other statements I never said were not corrected. Fortunately, the other staff member answered the phone. I'm surprised she told me this, but it was the best therapy for me so maybe she was meant to say it! She told me she knows what I mean about that one worker because she has to deal with it, too! She said a new office manager starts next week and she gave me her direct emal address to complain about that worker. 
    • Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?
      You've all been so helpful in guiding me what to do.  I did just receive my blood work and have an appt. with my doctor next week.  I wanted her to check it because I have lived a life of being extremely exhausted, migraines/headaches, and anxiety.  My thyroid is balanced and I am healthy (other blood results that were off were low platelet, low protein, high A/G ratio).  I am not good at reading results, but it appears negative to celiac, maybe next steps are trying a gluten-free diet for sensitivity?

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Hello, This is my first post. My 12yr old daughter was diagnosed with ?celiac disease. Her blood test was positive, genetic screen positive and her biopsy abnormal but they are not ready to say she is celiac because her villi are damaged but not gone. We are to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for 6 months. So far (1 month) we have adjusted well. I am learning to bake again using many many many different flours lol. However I cannot find a good sandwich bread. There are good tasting breads with little or no fiber or heavy dense breads that don't make good sandwiches or toast. She has become very constipated on this gluten-free diet because of the low fiber content of the cereal,rice and breads. We were told no oats for the first year? and no or little dairy for the first month. She has been on a low histamine diet for 4 months now as well. My question is what is the best way to make gluten free bread, oven or bread maker? Does anyone have a good healthy recipe for sandwich bread that a kid would like? We normally eat a soft 5 grain bread before gluten-free. Thank you!
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Thanks so much, gluten-free,  in my hypchondriacal panic I saw that website!  It is good to have an endorsement from a celiac.   I remember seeing quite a few reassuring stories in it along the lines that you describe. Funny isn't as because I now feel far less inclined to eat large amounts of carbohydrate now I have cut back a bit.   It seems the more sugar I ate, the more I wanted to eat.

      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.
