Finding a fast, inexpensive way to get a quick meal on the dinner table isn't always easy, but grocery stores like Publix can help. This supermarket chain founded in 1930 is popular for many reasons. First it has great customer service to go along with decent prices, and a wide-selection of grocery and household products. The popular chain also offers an in-store bakery that produces fresh bread, cakes, and other baked goods each day, as well as a deli that provides fresh meats, cheeses, and other prepared foods.

For example, you can get a whole rotisserie chicken at Publix. Don't need a whole chicken? No problem! Publix also serves half chickens. If you want to make a quick, healthy, dinner in no time, simply pick one up and pair it with some sides for a delicious dinner. Of course, breaking down a whole rotisserie chicken can be a bit challenging and messy, especially if you don't know how to cut one. But fear not because Publix associates help you get your rotisserie chicken dinner-ready. 

How To Get A Rotisserie Chicken Carved At Publix

Publix makes a great rotisserie chicken, and they are a very popular grocery item. If you want to have a chicken broken down or carved for you, a Publix deli associate will do it. You can ask the associate to carve the chicken or shred it, depending on how you are using it, but you should be specific about how you want it broken down. If you want just a portion of the chicken, like just the breasts or the thighs, they will even carve those off the whole chicken for you and only charge you for those pieces, rather than a whole chicken. 

If you go during a lunch or dinner rush, though, you may be waiting a bit for the help, so keep that in mind as you plan your shopping trip. Publix begins making rotisserie chickens at 11 a.m., and makes a batch every three hours. That means that if you want a fresh rotisserie chicken, your best times to snag one are close to 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. 

What To Do With Your Rotisserie Chicken

If you do opt for a whole rotisserie chicken, you may end up with some leftovers. It's important to store the chicken properly in an airtight container or Ziploc bag, to keep it fresh. Just keep in mind that a rotisserie chicken only lasts about four days in the fridge, if you have it stored properly. If you are not going to use the chicken within that four days, you should freeze it. It will keep good for about three months when frozen. 

There is a lot that you can do with a supermarket rotisserie chicken. For example, you can use the chicken in a sandwich for lunch the next day, toss it in some BBQ sauce and add it to hamburger buns for another weeknight dinner, make a chicken parmesan casserole that you can freeze for future meals, or throw it in some chili and enjoy a weekend dinner that requires very little effort to make. The possibilities are near limitless, and grow even bigger when you have a carved or shredded bird, courtesy of the Publix deli counter.
