Don't Eat Another Costco Rotisserie Chicken Until You Watch This



Even if you’re not a Costco member, you’ve no doubt heard about Costco’s rotisserie chicken. Here’s everything you need to know about them from what’s really in them, to how they stack up to competition, to what to do with it once you get it home.

The ingredient list for a Costco rotisserie chicken is actually pretty simple: a whole chicken, water, and seasonings including salt, sodium phosphate, modified food starch, potato dextrin, carrageenan, sugar, dextrose and spice extractives.

Some of those chemical-sounding words might seem unusual, but there’s nothing too terribly scary here. Sodium phosphate is an additive that helps keep meats moist and maintains freshness. Modified food starch is an additive typically used for thickening, stabilizing, or emulsifying. Potato dextrin is a thickener and a sweetener, but can also be used to enhance crispness in foods. Dextrose is a simple sugar made from corn. Carrageenan a preservative made from seaweed that, in chicken, helps to retain water is probably the most controversial ingredient here. Though it’s FDA-approved, there is some evidence to suggest that it triggers negative health effects in some.

For the most part, it seems these additives ensure maximum tenderness, and provide that always-winning combo of salty and sweet goodness. Most likely, you probably eat plenty of foods with way scarier labels that don’t taste anywhere near as good.

I stop at Costco on the way home from work, and I just get a chicken… sometimes I get a case of bottled water, too, but usually just the bird.

You will have to pry my cold, dead hands off my COSTCO rotisserie chicken before I give it up! You eat what you want and I'll eat what I want! I'm an adult. I make my own choices and live with them. Now, grow up and do something worthwhile for a change. Side note: I grew up eating off noodle carts in the backstreets of South East Asia! Food doesn't scare me.

I cook those chickens and just wanted to let you all know that Costco has a strict time limit of two hours in the warmer and no more. So you can be assured that your Costco chicken is fresh! ♥️

What, a $5.00 Costco chicken. Here in Canada they charge $8.00. The same as every other store. Not much saving going on here.

Have tried using their chicken for soup-dont do it. It doesnt taste the same. The spices they use end up in your soup and it doesnt taste like chicken soup 🤣

MSG is super salty and has the side effect of making people swell up nobody uses MSG unless they're stupid

I do get slightly offended when looking at the size of supermarket rotisserie chickens. And I will absolutely walk in and walk out with my chicken but my husband won’t. 🤦🏽‍♀️🙄🤷🏽‍♀️

I go to Costco weekly and just get a chicken and then on other days I buy steaks but yes I can go into Costco and just buy a chicken in fact I'm about to do it now

I find it so hilarious that they think people don’t already hear these in the oven. Everyone knows that the oven is better than the microwave for any food if you have the time.

Does anyone know if Costco uses acrylamide like Walmart chickens? Acrylamide causes cancer and and sign must be posted if it does. But some companies don't post it.
