Always Buy The Heaviest Rotisserie Chicken

When shopping for a rotisserie chicken, make the most judicious choice possible. The real test is its weight, which indicates that the meat is still tender and juicy.

The weight of the rotisserie chicken is significant because the longer it sits under heat lamps, the more moisture it loses, resulting in weight loss and dried-out meat.

There are clues that the meat has lost its moisture. If the skin is shriveled, or if the wings have detached from the breast, that indicates that the meat might dry out faster.

When choosing, pick up one in each hand to gauge the heaviest, and select that one. Time stamps on the packaging can sometimes be less reliable than assessing different options.
