What to Eat

What has bden your experience with the Roasted Chickens that are now in a lot of markets?

I'm quite concerned about their holding these chickens at ?? degrees temperature.

If they hold them hot enough to kill any bacteria, then they would probably be dried out if I was going to take one home for supper at 5:30p.

Bad news if they hold them at a temperature where the bacteria thrives! (I forget the numbers)

I bought one once and it tasted like cardboard!

I have had great experience with them. They are held hot enough that they are safe, but somehow do not dry out.

I have tried them a few time and I'm still here. They tasted ok but would rather roast my own at home.

they taste of injected flavorings and are way overcooked. In an emergency it's great to go get one and make quick fajitas or buritos, maybe a sandwich etc. But as a dining experience they lack a lot. As safe as anything else you buy.

The ones I get ar not injected at all. occasionally I have gotten an overcooked one, but usually I have not. Maybe I have just been very lucky.

I don't buy them often, but the are good in a pinch. The ones I have bought have not been too dry -but now I am thinking about the temperature thing - just one more thing to make me loony!

Wife and I have one about every other week on average. We like them a lot.
I enjoy splitting them in half and throwing them on the grill. If I am in the BBQ mood a little sauce is nice. Do not need to really cook them again, but a little browning on the skin side is nice as well on the inside.
BUT the bonus of it all is after you eat off all you want... MAKE A CHICKEN STOCK!!

Throw all the bones and all the meat bits you didn't eat into the stock pot, cover with water. Throw in some garlic, carrots, celery, some thyme, and salt/pepper if needed.
Boil for two hours or so.... strain- freeze... makes every savory dish better.

We like the ones from Costco. They're delicious. They are always well seasoned with a rub and moist as well. We buy one on a Saturday morning when we're out doing the grodcery shopping (last stop) and take it home for lunch and leftovers for another lunch.

I also save the inedible parts for my stock.

An item I do not plan on indulging in ever again. Yes, they are flavorful and still quite juicy, but every time I've eaten from one, shortly thereafter I'm rapidly en route to the bathroom while looking for a dose of Stop Leak (read: Immodium AD or Advanced).

Those chickens and drugs, just say no! Need something in a pinch? Get a sandwich at your local deli, IMHO!
