Just worry about cooking all day, freezing and then reheating it again.
This is not true. When I buy a rotisserie chicken, it lasts me a week, and that includes reheating it.

Good to know that a lot of you eat this regularly (w/o problems ) and for up to a week even. They always smell great when I go to the check out.

That's a problem sometimes, that they smell so great. When I bring one home, I'm immediately surrounded by The Pointy-Eared Ones who think it's dinner for them.

(No, I'm not talking about Vulcans.)

I have never bought a rotisserie chicken mainly because I am not fond of dark meat and did not want to waste those cuts. However after reading some of your posts and my exploration into using dark meat to make chilis, curries, soups, stews and stir-fries, I may very well purchase one and use the dark meat portions to concoct a variety of dishes.

We occasionally get rotisserie chickens from Costco and there is some sort of additive to them which causes my sinuses to become gummy for several hours after eating them. Not sure exactly what it's all about, I'm suspecting MSG or some such but we still get them occasionally.

If you are looking for really flavorful chicken soup, get a stewing hen and a fryer and simmer them both. The meat on the stewing hen may not be edible, although you can try running it through a meat grinder to see if it will become tender enough to eat or at least thicken the broth. The flavor, though, from the stewing hen will be divine. The edible meat comes from the fryer, but fryers aren't old enough to have any flavor yet. Which is why two different chickens are necessary for perfect chicken soup.

There is a time when simmering - not boiling, but a simmering - when it smells really, really good. That's the point you want to use the broth. If it boils or simmers too long, you lose the divine aroma and it becomes a lesser broth. Not that it still isn't good, it just isn't as good.

I've bought them for years and have never gotten sick off of one. Now, I mainly get them from Publix. Never had one from Costco, so I've got to go check them out. Hungry now...

I usually buy one one grocery day to serve for dinner that night. The family always loves it, except the Hubs complains that they're not big enough.

I get surrounded by kids and pointy eared ones. I have to buy two, one for the actual dinner/soup etc and the other for them to gnaw I mean snack on. My oldest once ate an entire chicken in 5 minutes flat. Teens!

Oh, their senses go crazy whenever we bring home take out, we get surrounded too.

Same here. Thinking ahead to two chickens a week (will make life easier) for as long as I can get away with it lol.
