Why You Should Always Buy Rotisserie Chicken
Last At The Grocery Store
A rotisserie chicken from the grocery store can be a great time saver that's delicious and affordable. However, if you're walking into the grocery store with a long list that includes a rotisserie chicken, get your other ingredients first.
There is a food saf​​ety "danger zone" you could enter when purchasing a pre-cooked chicken. Birds that have been sitting out can become unsafe to eat if their temperature is below 140 degrees Fahrenheit because bacteria can grow.
You also want to make sure you choose the hotter ones, according to food safety consultant Jeff Nelken because these chickens have been receiving the most heat. Once you buy the chicken, you don't want to leave it out for too long, so it should be consumed or refrigerated within two hours.
