My regular grocery store makes them at certain times throughout the day. I've asked when. So for an example I know they cook them at 4 and at 6. So I'll go at that time to get a fresh one. My deli also writes the time it was made on them plus you can check the price label sticker, the time is on that as well usually in the corner. I'm lazy so I get a couple a week for stocks, meals etc.

The only good rotisserie chicken around here is from Costco. I usually eat the legs and wings, and make a chicken salad from the breast

Okay, maybe it's just me, but I don't consider anything "fresh" once it has been cooked.

Oh man, I love rotisserie chicken. The lazy person's meal.

I buy a whole chicken and eat it for lunch and dinner, with sides or rice, or by itself.

Get it from Vons or other grocery stores.

I'll frequently buy a half a rotisserie chicken for lunch, costs around $5, Whether they are fresh or not i have no idea,they taste good and are a filling meal for the price.

I have Stop and Shop near me, and their rotisserie chicken is usually very very good! Only once it has been dry, but otherwise, it's spot on in terms of flavor, seasoning, and moisture. The chicken tastes fresh and so I'm never worried about that.

I know they put out a very limited number of roasted chickens/day, and that they start putting them out during lunch time. There is a time stamp on each container shoppers know how long ago it was cooked.

I looked for any kind of a date on there but couldn't find one. I will look out for a time stamp.

Do you think it would be okay to slow simmer one for a few hours to make chicken soup? I then plan on eating it for two days after as left overs and then freeze some, and reheat the following week.

I don't see why not. There's no difference if you bought a chicken, roasted it and then used it for soups. Or you cooked a bunch of chicken and then use it in several dishes Are you seeing somewhere or being told that you shouldn't?
