If there’s one thing you can count on to be consistent, it’s the price of Costco’s rotisserie chicken. While other establishments continue to bump up their prices on their whole rotisserie chickens, Costco’s has remained at a steady $4.99 since 2009, according to The Hustle!

You’re definitely missing out if you don’t take advantage of this deal. To put it into perspective, Safeway currently has them priced at $8.99, Walmart at $6.97, and Whole Foods at $8.99 (they also vary in price depending on location). But nevertheless, they don’t come close to the Costco price.

With that said, there are plenty of delicious ways to use rotisserie chicken! It’s perfect for meal prep, soups, salads, and casseroles. It can reduce your time in the kitchen significantly since it is already pre-cooked to perfection and ready to use however you wish.
