Oh yeah, tearing it off the chicken is part of the enjoyment for me. I like gnawing on bones too.

I have yet to buy any vacuum packed white meat. But it is there in case I need some. Chicken salad comes to mind.
The leg quarters are still on the bone and I have bought them for soup.
You get 8 leg quarters for $4.99. 16 total pieces. Same price as the whole rotisserie chicken.

I always use a knife to separate parts.......

I would like pulling off the meat and shredding it with some nice bar-b-que sauce to make sandwiches.

So if you just want meat, you can't get more fresh unless you cooked it yourself.

In another thread we had a member discussing this very thing. My remarks were that if the manufacturers were to discontinue the injection process, their product would suffer.
This kinda enforces that view IMO.
But you pay for the chicken by weight so you're paying through the nose for the salt water. Costco, etc., aren't doing this to give you juicy chicken. They're doing it for their profits. If they used better quality chickens which didn't need injections of salt water they wouldn't make as much money.

Over here manufacturers have to declare on the label if they have injected they birds with water. It's mostly the cheap, 3 for £10 birds that are treated thus and most of us are too clued-up to fall for the con.
Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

I was happy to find a new item at Costco today...a two pound package of beautiful boneless skinless breast meat from their rotisserie chickens. I'll freeze it in two cup portions and have it when ever the mood strikes.
My feuding supermarket always puts out the day old rotisserie chicken parts (breasts, legs, thighs, wings) at a reduced price. Great for chicken salad sandwiches and other good ideas. I use the artisan bread with it.
