Default Rotisserie Chicken???

So annoyed that the grocery stores rotisserie chicken doesn't have fat/carb contents on the package. I noticed that a couple of the flavors do have sugar, but the garlic one does not. Do you think this would be alright???

Thanks so much

i find generally the rotisserie chicks are cooked with skin on (not good) and generally where I shop all of them have some form of sugar in the sauce ...... honey garlic, teryiaki, barbecue.....

i'm very very sceptical about rotisserie chicken.

I found a couple that don't put sugar in them though, and I don't eat the skin either...give that to my neighbor for her doggie!

Rotisserie chicken was a staple for me until I actually read the ingredients and saw "sugar" listed.

Hmm. Maybe that's why I didn't lose any weight for the first 2 weeks? Grilling extra chicken breasts every time I cook them from now on. . .

I've heard that they inject the chicken with sugar before they rotisserie it.

I don't mean straight sugar but I think the juices they inject it with has sugar in it. It's supposed to make it juicy and moist.

Rotesserie chickens cooked in the grocery store are often injected with dextrose, which is the chemical equivalent of pure glucose, it's not just the juices or sauces. A lot of luncheon meats and other meats found in the meat case also are injected with this or they are "sugar" cured or something. IMO (just my personal opinion, not meaning to get into a debate on this as sometimes seems to happen to me ) it's a really bad idea to eat this stuff, better to just check labels and buy 100 percent natural chicken that doesn't list any extra ingredients.

I wonder if a "Whole Foods" type store would have a sugar-free rotisserie chicken. I'll have to check with the few we have in Boise. It's really annoying for those of us who'd rather not cook. I even enjoy cooking, but I don't want to use the oven when it's hot outside!

You can make your own version then you know what's in it.

Rotisserie-Style Chicken in The Crockpot:
3-4 pound chicken
olive oil cooking spray
lawry's seasoned salt
one chopped onion
minced garlic, to taste

Wad up balls of foil the size of golf balls and place in the bottom of the crockpot. Spray outside of chicken with olive oil spray, then season lightly with seasoned salt. (This is what makes it turn the pretty brown color! If you don't want to use this I think you could sub other seasonings.) Place chopped onion and garlic inside the chicken. Place chicken in crockpot on top of foil balls (this keeps the chicken out of the water that accumulates as it cooks) and cook on low for eight hours.

------------------------------------------------------

This tastes great-- we like it just as well as the chicken we used to pick up at the deli counter of our grocery store. We usually have portions of the chicken for dinner one night, and then make soup, chicken salad, etc. with the leftovers.

HTH!
