How to Pick the Best Rotisserie Chicken at the Grocery Store!

posted by Megan - 

Rotisserie chickens are SO convenient.  They are already cooked and ready to go!  Not to mention, all of the things you can do with the leftovers...chicken salad, soups, casseroles, tacos, etc.  And now you can make sure you pick the best one every time.  

Here's what you need to look for:

1). The heaviest one - Under a heat lamp, a plastic container acts like an Easy Bake Oven, continuing to cook the chicken as it sits. A heavier bird means the juices haven’t evaporated out of the meat.  [Source]

2). Check the skin - "As the juices leave the meat, the chicken’s skin begins to shrivel and becomes discolored." ~Rick Martinez, senior food editor.   A good one is evenly browned all over with taut skin. If it looks like a deflated balloon, leave it be. [Source]
