How do you know it isnt the same at WF? They have different types of rotisserie chickens, and not everyone can afford to spend $10-15 for one.
To be honest, I wouldn't recommend buying any rotisserie chicken if you're trying to eat healthy unless you know the source or cook it yourself. They sound like a nice, healthy dinner, but most store bought ones are so full of preservatives, sodium, and other crap that you might as well just eat whatever. The point was the poster was comparing the $1.99 organic chickens people were buying with paying $5 for a chicken at Costco. The Costco rotisserie chickens are super unhealthy and pumped full of all kinda of crap.

Not only the source for rotisserie, but the shelf life. The ones they use to rotisserie are the ones that were unable to sell raw on the shelf. They marinade the hell out of them to hide any smells (as its close to expired date).

so i should eat some pizza from pizza hut or maybe a sackful from krystal? maybe a brown bag special with a coconut cream slush from sonic? that would be essentially the same as eating costco rotisserie? tell that to the 22 lbs i've recently lost while having these birds as part of my diet about once a week.

Quit eating this chicken and you'll probably lose another 5 lbs of water weight.

Glad you're losing weight, but once you hit your goal realize that weight isn't the only indicator of health. All the crap pumped in these things is poison. I used to eat these things all the time and my blood pressure dropped significantly and my energy went way up after cutting seemingly healthy prepared foods, such as Costco chickens, out of my diet.

So I don't know which factor in my dietary change gave me the results or if it was a combination of them...
I think it was you losing 85-lb. That can be done on the conventional diet of sugars and non-whole wheat. It's called moderation + exercise.

As for the evil Monsanto, gov't and environmental groups are no better. Let's talk about malaria and the elimination of DDT. Tens of millions will die because of this purely POLITICAL decision. How about African gov't stealing money that could be used for 1st world treatment of HIV/AIDS?

Basically, there's corruption everywhere, but to solely look at big business is wrong. Without big business and profits, we all would be living in the 1800's.

Thanks, OP. Picked me up 4 birds on Friday. Will be comparing them in taste and texture to Tyson chicken from the local Walmart.

Enough about rotisserie chicken and give me your opinion on organic vs. non-organic chicken breast. I buy Kirkland 6.5lbs individually wrapped frozen chicken breasts. Organic chicken breasts are so much more expensive, but I'm sure they are way better health wise.

don't do your research here. get actual scientific studies to form your opinion.

I eat mostly plants but get hungry all the time. I also buy the organic chicken and throw it into my salad.Does anyone know what is pumped into the costco chickens? I thought it was mainly salt water, what else is there?
