Costco Rotisserie Chicken

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey -

I was wondering if anybody has had a reaction to Costco's rotisserie chicken? I checked the back of the label and it noted that the modified food starch in the seasoning was from potato and tapioca starch but am confused as to what escaped me!

Thanks!

Pip

I was happily eating that chicken for months with no symptoms. Then suddenly got sick everytime, same symptoms as gluten. Turns out from blood tests, I have an allergy to paprika, bell peppers and celery. Celery rxn is especially bad. Anyone else have a problem with celery?

I react every time from their chicken! Here's my email correspondence with Costco. Note that it took me asking twice about CC after first being told the chicken is gluten-free.  (The earlier messages are at the bottom.)

Be careful buying anything prepared in the store!!

Hi Daniela,
 
Thank you for letting me know that the rotisserie chicken itself does not contain gluten. 
 
I would also like to know about cross-contamination. Does the preparation method used ensure that there's no cross-contamination?
 
Thank you

Hi,

I have Celiac disease and am unable to consume gluten. Do you know if your rotisserie chicken is gluten free and safe from cross-contamination?

Thank you,

From memory in the UK the chicken actually says gluten free on the label. 

The food prep area there though is gluten central. Pizza's, sandwiches etc. I don't think I've had it since gluten free, usually roast my own.

Jmg,

would you mind sharing your method/recipe for roasting your own chicken? It was one thing I loved before going gluten-free because it's so versatile and can save tons of time prepping meals every night!

Sure but it's nothing special :)

I slice garlic thinly then poke holes in the skin with the tip of a sharp knife and slide the garlic slices underneath so they sit between the skin and the meat, I rub a little olive oil onto the skin then season with salt and pepper. I halve a lemon and place it in the bird along with a halved onion and a little more garlic. Then I roast it. I don't think you can go wrong with garlic, lemon and chicken.

Like you say it's versatile. I can get several meals from it and I always save the bones and boil them up with the carcass and any old veggies lying around for a stock. Now I'm hungry :(

You're welcome :) let me know how it tastes. I quite enjoy prepping it, like being a surgeon, except the prognosis for the patient isn't great...

I would be pretty careful about rotisserie anything in a supermarket or megastore in the US if it isn't labeled gluten free. 

I agree! Usually I don't buy anything prepped or cooked in grocery stores, but the label said does not contain MSG, Gluten and a few other things. Hopefully they change they way they label their stuff.

It's delicious! The prep wasn't bad at all, and I can get quite a few meals with it! Thank you again. ?
