Costco Rotisserie Chicken

All truth be told, who needs a husband when you have Costco.  As good a cook J is, he has ALWAYS had trouble baking a satisfactory chicken.  His baked chicken are consistently undercooked, and always require a few more minutes in the microwave.  Costco’s rotisserie chicken, however, NEVER disappoints!  At $4.99 for a whole chicken, what more can you ask for?  So this past weekend, I picked up a chicken and a bottle of KJ’s white table wine and had a feast for under $15.

Juicy, tender, and above all cooked all the way through! Better than Pollo Loco, better than Pollo Feliz, better than any other rotisserie chicken I've ever had.

Not sure which grapes were used as it didn't say, but not bad. However, $9.99 for a white table wine is a bit pricey.

Since the meal was oh so yummy, I decided to swing by Costco on my half day today for round 2.  My stomach was already growling in car, and all I could see in front of me was that succulent chicken.  I could not wait to get my hands on them.

I first went to pick out a Robert Mondavi fume blanc.  Satisfied with my selection, I headed towards the meat/deli section.  However, when I got there I was dumbfounded.  There were no succulent rotisserie chicken anywhere in sight!  My first thought was, ‘do they not sell them during the weekdays?’ (as I’ve never visited Costco during the weekdays).  I looked around, there were no chicken on the shelf nor were there any in the oven.  No one was manning the area.  What’s going on?  As I accepted the fact that there indeed were no chicken, I returned the fume blanc back to its crate and walked out of Costco flustered.

After coming home, the more I thought about it the more it didn’t make sense.  Why wouldn’t they sell the chicken on a weekday, especially when the chicken has it’s own Facebook page with 1123 followers?  So I decided to call up the ‘meat section’ at Costco.

Butcher: Hello.

Me: Hi, I have a very strange question for you.  Does Costco not sell the rotisserie chicken during weekdays?

Butcher: Oh {chuckling}…one of our chicken delivery truck got stuck in the snowstorm, but they should be arriving at 5pm today.

Me {thinking, ‘The snowstorm out East?  Why is the chicken coming from over there?”}

Butcher: It takes about an hour and a half to cook the chicken, so it should be ready around 6:30pm.

Me {YIPPEEEEE}: Thank you VERY much for the information.

So guess where I’m heading to later tonight?  Yes, my ‘other husband’s’.

    You know what’s really sad? I went back at 7PM, and there still wasn’t any chicken. In fact, the oven was being ‘washed’ from the inside.
    I presume anything you stick in an oven is ‘baking’, and anything that’s penetrated by a wooden stick over camp fire is ‘roasting’, but I see what you’re saying. Technicalities…

    That bake/roast distinction went right over my head too… Sad indeed!
