The One Mistake People Make With Their Grocery Store Rotisserie Chicken
I never thought I'd be diving into a deep discussion concerning chicken, yet here we are.
There's no denying that supermarket rotisserie chicken hits differently if consumed on the date of purchase. However, there are two types of people in this world: those who eat the chicken on the day of purchase and those who buy it to eat later on in the week (hopefully within a few days).
Some nights the hot chicken is perfect for a quick and easy meal with a side of 90-second Uncle Ben's rice and steamed broccoli. On other nights, I'd rather save the chicken for a light lunch as a salad topper or a wrap.
There's no judgment, but I have a pro tip to make life easier.
If you're not shredding your chicken as soon as you get home, you're doing it wrong. Once you place that warm chicken in the fridge, all of the fat and grease will solidify, making it tougher to pull apart. At least when it's still hot the meat falls right off the bone. I find that you get more meat, too, as opposed to letting the chicken chill for a day or two.
When it comes to prepping your rotisserie chicken for your next meal, work smarter, not harder.
I hope this helps.
