Costco Ready Made Whole Chickens?

Are Costco ready made whole chickens O.K. to eat on induction? I only ask because they taste better than mine and am wondering if there is something in them I don't know about. Thanks,teresa

i think so. if in doubt, you could take the skin off. though that's probably what makes it taste so good!~ look for the plain or original variety, as opposed to anything heavily seasoned, bbq, italian, etc. enjoy!

We eat the rotisserie chickens from Costco all the time. Besides being a little salty (which I compensate by drinking a lot of extra water), they have done me just fine on induction so far.

Check the label -the rotisserie/baked chickens at the Costcos out here have sugar in the seasoning/whatever mix that they add to it.

If you call the number on the label (probably corporate) they'll tell you the calorie/nutrition info. I've done this on other products in the past.

I haven't had one in such a long time. I agree that they are super tasty. *Licking Fingers* LOL. But it does include some undesirable ingredients, not to mention that they are high in sodium.

as you can see, its loaded with salt!.. and carefully on the "sugars: less than 1g" (per 3 oz). On induction, I would count "less than 1g" as "1g"

I get these a lot. Sometimes it's the only thing I go to Costco for!:blush: They make a quick and cheap meal. I've never had any issues with them. Just drink lots of water because of the salt.
