I need chicken breasts for my Asian Chicken Salad wraps, and I needed them STAT.
I had a difficult time finding the frozen variety; besides, I didn't have time to thaw the chicken. Of course, there were the breaded, nugget variety, but I wanted simple, plain, REAL chicken ...
Sure, there were fresh, fajita style chicken strips available, but they were pricey and had flavor ... think spicy, peppered, and terriyaki.
I spied the hot, Costco rotisserie chicken ...
Hmmmm.... I could take it home and rip it apart, but this salad is better with cold chicken.
I glanced around and saw that Costco makes Chicken Noodle soup, Chicken pot pies, Chicken Salad, and ... bam ... I got an idea.
I asked the two gentlemen working the rotisserie counter, "Do you have any rotisserie chicken already cut up, ready to go?"
Sure we do! They are in bags and weigh about 3 pounds. How many do you want?
So that's what they use in all those chicken meals ~ cold, ready to use rotisserie chicken!
All white meat, ready to chop and use, and pretty darn tasty, too! Think of what you can make:
... and much, much more!
What are you waiting for?
These are not found in the deli or refrigerated section. You'll have to smile, bat your eyelashes and sweetly ask for it at the rotisserie counter.
You'll be glad you did!
