Sam's Club's Rotisserie chicken is below $4.50. They dropped the price a few weeks ago. I buy them to make my Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad. Just out of curiousity, I stripped all the meat off and picked over the carcass. Then weighed the pure meat. It turns out cheaper per pound than buying the boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Already cooked and tasty! I got a "half" a chicken package in the freezer. Not to mention 3 more packages of just the broke down chicken parts. In the winter, I save up the carcasses, wings and container juices. I use that to make chicken broth for soups. I add a baggie of chicken meat to it as we like meaty soups. Nice cheap meal.
When we spend the night in a Sam's club parking lot, our supper is often a freshly cooked rotisserie chicken. We buy the preshedded cabbage ($2 per bag) then snip it up some more with kitchen shears, add my coleslaw dressing and let sit overnight. Yummy! For under $7 we have a meal for two and leftovers for lunch the next day. Unless we have Das Mel with us, in that case there is no chicken left.
I just thought of something... The smell of the rotisserie chicken may attract intruders!
I shall protect my rotisserie chicken to the last bite!
