When prepared correctly, rotisserie chicken can be a healthier alternative to fried chicken and other unhealthy variations of chicken. Rotisserie chicken is super high in protein, contains iron, calcium, and vitamin A, and can be a low calorie meal. However, rotisserie chicken can be extremely unhealthy. Costco for example, sells millions of rotisserie chickens each year. In a mere three-ounce serving, a Costco rotisserie chicken contains 460 mg of sodium and 2.5 grams of saturated fat. Rotisserie chicken itself isn’t the problem, since it’s loaded with high-quality protein and important minerals. But depending on how it’s seasoned, the chicken may be incredibly high in sodium.
