We recently got a new Costco in our town. It wasn’t long before I discovered the Costco rotisserie chicken. Have you ever wondered what to do with a Costco rotisserie chicken? If so, I’ve got you covered!
Costco rotisserie chickens cost just $5 in our store. And they are huge! I can’t buy a raw whole chicken of that size for $5, so getting one already cooked is a great deal.
After buying several of these and realizing that I can feed my family of 6 twice from one chicken, I decided to try using them to stock my freezer.
Your mileage may vary, but for my family there’s enough meat for me to make 5-6 meals out of 3 chickens. The last time I went to Costco, I bought three chickens. We brought them home and took all the meat off the bones. The meat yielded enough for 5 different recipes.
I froze the meat in plastic freezer bags in about 2 cup quantities. It’s so nice to have chicken already cooked and frozen, ready to go. There are lots and lots of recipes that use cooked chicken on this site alone. I’ve pulled 13 of my favorite recipes to share with you here.
Of course, if you don’t have a Costco, or you’d just rather cook your own chicken to freeze, that works too. Try this Whole Chicken in the Slow Cooker.
