$6.99- your choice of 3 flavors and the chickens are real big. I'm going start getting one more often, let their electric bill take the hit.

Zero prep time, zero cook time, zero cleanup time = huge savings.

Rotisserie chicken (called the Superbird at the local supermarket), around 3.5 pounds cooked weight, usually tender and somewhat juicy, and we use the leftovers to make chicken salad for 3 of spouse's lunches that week. I think they're $7.99 but if you have a silver coin (or are a silver saver member) it's $5.99. This week they'll give you 1.25 pounds of cooked mac and cheese as a bonus with the purchase of the bird.

Here in NEPA, one store has them for $6.99. The store across the street has them for $4.99. These are the regular prices. Guess which store I buy my rotisserie chicken?

If the mac and cheese is even moderately decent what a deal that would be. We get 2 dinners out of a chick plus a couple chicken sandwiches or chicken salad. Sometimes I even have a little to freeze.

Where I live its 8 or 9 dollars at the grocer store, but I never realized all the chemicals and crap that is in store rotisserie chicken. I just buy a fresh free range or organic one and go season and bake it myself at home. Which is much tastier and healthier. I also hate grocery store deli/bakeries. All the baked goods have trans fat and other mystery ingredients. What happened to a cakes just having eggs, vanilla, milk, flour, and sugar?

Wonder what the rest of the country was seeing for a cooked bird. They come in mighty handy. Seems I remember the ones in Georgia stores being cheaper. More along the 5 - 6 dollar range.

Edit. Please don't give store names, or how the price is "terrible." I've found out the hard way, this is a way to get banned for two weeks. Be generic.
Really? I noticed one of the mods answered your question in this thread and she included the fact that it was at Costco. I'm always confused about the rules here.

But back to chickens (rotisserie for us, not fried).....
$4.99 at Sam's Club (hope it's ok for me to mention Sam's)
Other grocery stores $6.99 and $7.99.

This is in Louisiana, and I was honestly thinking about this same thing recently, that I remember them costing less when we lived elsewhere. But then I got thinking about the fact that this is an ENTIRE chicken, an ENTIRE being that had to be raised from egg-hood, fed until adulthood, then plucked, processed, and god-knows-whatever else is done to the poor little thing, then shipped to the store, seasoned, cooked, kept warm in the grocery display, and then finally, it is purchased. That's an awful lot of work for 7 or 8 bucks. Doesn't seem that anyone is getting rich selling rotisserie chickens.
