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?

    • Personally, I would ask for the full Celiac panel and see what that shows.  I mean, the full Monty, not just cherry picking testing.  On the full panel, if the tTg and the EMA come back positive, that is a diagnosis without biopsy.  This is how I was diagnosed and there is absolutely no doubt I have Celiac.  I presented with classic celiac so it was a no brainer with my blood results. If you cannot stick to the diet religiously, without cheating, unless you have a biopsy picture, then I would go on to have a biopsy.  Like your daughter, I was way too sick to have one done at the time.  They would not have agreed to use sedation because I was so anemic and malnourished and that ended that!  Good luck with whatever you decide!
    • This Asian-style barbeque chicken makes a great summer treat. Barbecue chicken is a perennial summer favorite around these parts, and this recipe delivers barbecue chicken with a decidedly Asian flare. View the full article
    • And as for the green stools, you said you eat a lot of kale and spinach?  A generous, daily diet of kale and spinach will be reflected in the bathroom.  You are what you eat.  
    • I just traveled three weeks this summer in Europe (Eastern).  Do not trust that the airlines will remember to load a gluten-free meal for you.  There is a 50-50 chance that they will not (in my experience).  We packed ONLY carry on.  Still found plenty of room to stash some emergency food.  You should be able to find food within an International airport.  Chips and typical junk food clearly labeled, even fruit.  Print or load Celiac travel cards with you in all the languages you will need.  They are free.  Google it.  Found these handy (not only in restaurants) but in the markets when we could not read labels but the staff could read them and Help us to make gluten-free choices.  amazing how you can communicate without knowing the language.  A few words like "thank you" in their language go along way (so does Google Translator).  Never met anyone who was not willing to help.   I carry a collapsible cooler that I pack with food and bags of ice to eat on then plane or right at my arrival or connection.  I take extra zip lock baggies with me.  Sometimes TSA will let you through if the ice is still hard (not melting).  Some will make you toss them then I just ask a restaurant to refill my ziplock baggies after passing Security.   I also carry a doctor's letter on my phone to show I am celiac, but no one has ever asked for me to present it.   Even though I carry a "third" piece of luggage on board, I have not been stopped.  Both that and my day backpack fit under the seat.  I use this cooler as needed through our trips.  If not, it fits in my backpack.  
    • Welcome, Kierra. You're only 15 so you need to make sure your parents are 100% aware of your medical issues so that they can advocate for you. It may or may not be celiac, but the only way to find out is to start with a full celiac blood panel, then an endoscope if necessary. However, for the tests to be accurate, you must consume gluten on a daily basis.
