Reheating Rotisserie Chicken:

One night, right before closing time at Sam's, my dad found an entire cart full of Rotisserie chickens for $2.00 each!!! We all have a great love of Rotisserie chicken, so he got several and I just wanted to share with you how we re-heated them. They generally aren't very expensive to buy in the first place, especially since they are hot and ready, but we have found them "discounted" at the end of the day numerous times at Walmart and Sam's (I'm sure other places have them as well). 


#1. Oven Method
Wrap the cooked chicken tightly in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. 
This way was very good, although it did dry out the chicken slightly. 

#2. Crock-Pot Method
 Wrap the chicken tightly with foil. Put about 1/2-inch of water in the bottom of your crock-pot. Place the chicken in the crock-pot, making sure that the seams of the foil are on top the chicken, so no water can get in the foil. Cover and cook on low for 3 &1/2 - 4 hours.
This way was AMAZING!! It was SO moist and most of us actually liked it better like this than when you eat it straight from getting it from the store!

So I hope you will get some rotisserie chicken and try out one of these great re-heating methods! They are so nice since they are already cooked and everything!

Note:
-The ones we get are labeled "gluten-free" but I would still strongly recommend checking the label wherever you purchase yours, just to be safe!

Are you reheating them from frozen? If not how would I reheat them from frozen? - Sherry

Hi Sherry!
I am re-heating when they have just simply been refrigerated. I have never tried to freeze one, but that's a great idea! I would said that if you were to freeze it whole (as is, with the bones and everything), then the best way to re-heat it, would be Slow-Cooker method I mentioned. I recommend a low setting for maybe 6-8 hours. I'm sure the oven method would work too, but it does not do a very good job at keep the meat moist, so I would be more apt to put it in the crockpot. Again, I'm not sure, because I've never done it, so these are just my speculations!! If you try it and find success, please come back and share, and I will add it to the post!! Thank you so much for stopping by!
God Bless!
