As a busy mom, I love recipes using store bought rotisserie chicken.

They’re perfect for those crazy weeknights when you don’t feel like cooking every single thing from scratch.

Plus, they’re high in protein and fairly cheap which is an added bonus if you’re trying to keep your grocery bill down like most of us are these days.

Are rotisserie chickens healthy?

Rotisserie chickens are great for cutting your dinner prep time in half for those times when life is crazy busy, but you might be wondering whether or not they’re actually healthy.

The good:

Store bought rotisserie chickens are a good source of protein, niacin, vitamins B6 and B12, selenium, and phosphorous (source).

And, aside from shredding, there’s virtually no prep to quickly toss them into other recipes for a complete meal.

The not-so-good:

Now, those are some good points, but sometimes store bought rotisserie chicken can also be high in sodium as well.

If you are watching your sodium, check and see if your grocery store offers less sodium or unseasoned options.

If not, these recipes are still great for using up any leftover chicken you have from other meals.
