Copycat Costco Rotisserie Chicken

You guys! My co-worker introduced me to Costco’s Rotisserie Chicken Salad and I was instantly addicted. Since I am a single mom – with a child who doesn’t eat what I eat most of the time, I don’t have the need for a membership to Costco, nor do I need the size they sell it in.

So I decided to make my own. I found a recipe for how to make rotisserie flavored/style chicken and then I found one for the salad version. I don’t recall the source for the first one, but I altered Kitchen Cheetah’s recipe for the salad.

I did not make pictures along the way, but you get the idea. Maybe I’ll add some later, for good measure.

Here is the recipe in its entirety:

Rotisserie Chicken

  • 1.5 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1+ lbs. chicken tenders
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray foiled covered pan with oil (lightly/optional if you use non-stick foil).

  2. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl then sprinkle the tenders on all sides.

  3. Place tenders in a single layer then bake for 15-20 minutes.

  4. Let cool before shredding.
