    We love making chicken tacos out of these. So good and so much easier/cheaper than buying the raw chicken and cooking, then shredding.

    Love this post!

    I love this post, because I’ve had my share of rotisserie chicken and Costco whole sale has the best. It’s so flavorful and juicy way better than the others that I’ve tried. We take it a part and make chicken Cesar salad with the breast meat, and wraps. I can see if I can get my mom’s home made dressing, if you want it I can send that to you.

    1. Ooh yes, we’re big fans of Caesar Salad here! It’s Mark’s favorite meal! Would love to have the recipe! 🙂

      And I agree that Costco is definitely the best. I find all of their meat really high quality, but their rotisserie is just SO good!! 🙂

  6. Katie, love to do this. And I’m SO glad you didn’t throw the carcass away. You did good! I even take the thanksgiving turkey carcass home from my brother and sil’s house. I refuse to let her throw it away. Always tons of meat left for turkey and dumplings. The we fill the freezer up with a TON of soup.

    1. That is awesome! I think so many people waste really good food because they don’t know what they’ve got! I’ll admit this was my first time ever making stock from scratch, but I’ve seen my mother do it in the past. I think we used to LIVE on Turkey Noodle Soup after Thanksgiving every year! 🙂 I’m excited for this year to get lots of use out of the leftovers! 🙂

    Eating all of the chicken and using its stock would be a lot of fat and cholesterol, meaning bad eating habits and not that healthy, I would only eat the less greasy parts, unless health is not your biggest worry.

    I love to bring home a Rotisserie Chicken when I go to Costco. With 4 big boys to feed though, I can usually only get a couple of meals out of it. But hey, that’s a good deal anyway! Great blog post!

    Thanks for the encouragement to make the most of my chicken. I made my first stock today. It smells wonderful, you are right!
    For all the naysayers out there, omit adding salt, chill, remove the fat from the top of the container once congealed, and add some organic low sodium broth if you must.
    Since I am cooking for the whole family and need to be practical and the most of what I buy I can cut my fat and salt somewhere on my plate and make an exception.
    PS. I am a Costco employee and I KNOW how we handle these chickens from beginning to end. There are no lurking secret ingredients.

    I always make chicken stock out of the carcass. But I freeze it in 1 cup containers or even an ice cube tray. You know those recipes that call for 2 TBS of chicken broth? Perfect! Homemade broth is so much tastier and has less salt than the canned stuff. It really is worth the little effort to make.
