One cannot leave Costco without buying their mouthwatering and savory rotisserie chicken! Costco is a magnificent wholesaler and one of the best products there is this rotisserie chicken you so adore. Not only do they last for days and help you economize, but are also a quick fix and save you a lot time.
There is definitely something that sets Costco’s rotisserie chicken apart from chickens of other brands. They give customers a healthier and cheaper option to other fast food varieties. These famous $4.99 chickens have become so popular that they were recently discussed on one of Dr. Oz’s recent episodes.
The speculations can now come to an end as we finally have answers about what secret ingredient in Costco’s rotisserie chicken makes it so addictive.
A surprising fact that came out of the discussion between Dr. Oz and food journalist Mark Schatzker on the show was that the Costco’s chicken goes through processing in much the same manner as any other grocery store! Then what is it that makes it so delicious?
It’s the seasoning! It’s all in the way it is marinated that makes it so addictive, but also healthy at the same time. The blend has sodium, sugar, spice extractives, and cornstarch with MSG and sugar flavoring on the skin. The combination, as suggested by Dr. Oz, is “one of the healthiest processed foods out there.”
iamcamjr.blogspot.com – Costco’s Rotisserie ChickenThe chicken is under priced and yet Costco hasn’t altered the prices in years. This is one of their very intelligent business tactics. When people come to buy the rotisserie chicken, they are sure to purchase sides as well like salads, drinks, etc. This adds to their cart and the cheap and healthy food is sure to attract them more than once a month.
Plus, the rotisserie chicken at Costco is gluten free. With a gradual reduction of antibiotics in their chicken, Costco is providing customers with something to easily incorporate in their daily diet.

James E King says
We buy the chicken on a regular basis. My wife LOVES it. Me? Not so much. The smell of it gags me. She has to carry it in her cart up to the checkout & when we get it home, it is her & the cats that eat it.
Anna Pacheco says
No, I don’t buy Costco’s rotisserie chicken, No, I’m not a fan of Dr. Oz. No, I do not have a membership to Costco.

Maryanne Panker says
They should post the fact that they use MSG…I get horrible migraines from MSG. Will not buy their chickens again.
Jack Bisikirski says
Well folks….. The Chicken is good. Just peal off the skin and don’t eat the skin. That makes it even better for you.
M. Elsemore says
Love Costco chicken . . . perfect compliment to a quick meal, snack, etc. No side affects 🙂
Susan Loper says
How can it be healthy and have MSG?
Brad Hamel says
Please do some research, MSG is not unhealthy. That came from a horrible report from a racist doctor year ago. It has since been proven false.
Officer LT. durden says
its on the label you .. all you have to do is the read it..
Jean Liles says
Not with MSG , very unhealthy, that what keep them coming back
Sean Moran says
love it- always buy two or three and freeze them…..and for all the folks worried about the ingredients, seriously look into what ellse you are putting inyour mouth.
Rodney Kosmalski says
Costco chickens are awful in my opinion. That have some weird coding on them that just grosses me out when eating them. All grocery store chickens don’t have this coding. I would much rather pay the dollar or two more…how does no one else notice this
Susan Lord says
Label at COSTCO says it’s MSG free. Article says it has cornstarch with MSG. Very confusing.
Thomas Arnott says
I always by 2 or 3. Dog likes them too!

I HAVE BEEN BUYING COSTCO CHICKEN FOR A LONG TIME MY LATE WIFE LIKED THEM
THE PRICE IS GOOD FOR $4.99 YOU CANT BEAT IT THANK YOU.
I love Costcos chicken. MSG is not good for children. I wish Costco would leave that out of seasonings. One of the most popular jar seasonings used to include it. Now they don’t.
Sam’s Club is just as delicious & same price.
I buy the Sam’s chicken as well..They are delicious. However in all fairness I have not tried Costco’s. I live in a small area and we have only Sam’s Club here.
Renee Kelly says
I’ve yet to buy a rotisserie chicken from Sam’s Club that was cooked through. No more. Since there’s no Costco remotely close to me I’ll stick with Publix’ chicken.
Jackie Rose says
But it has MSG … REALLY !! That stuff is a killer. If you have any allergies it can trigger a migraine. Stay away from any & all products with this.
tim fairchild says
I buy one every visit.
JEANETTE OCONNOR says
I think their chickens are way too fatty
Laurie Haber says
I didn’t even know it had MSG. I don’t buy anything else that has MSG, so I might not buy their chicken anymore. Please stop using it.
Adrienne Vandewiele says
I bought one once & it was not done! EWE! Tossed it! I’ll pay a couple bucks more for a done chicken somewhere else!
Kitty Sipes says
I love their chickens. There is not a better deal out there. Keep it up Costco – love you guys too.
Sharon Morrow says
Sign above chicken says no MSG your post says MSG added ……..which is correct?
