Empire Ready to Roast Garlic & Herb Chicken

ThePrettypoodle Oct 16, 2012 12:40 PM

My husband and I had this last night for dinner and it was a HIT! VERY yummy and made a GREAT diner with a side of grilled asparagus and some Mid East Cury Cous cous for an easy and filling dinner. Plus there was some chciken left that I added to my canned chicken / matzah ball soup today which made a childhoof fav even better! I cant recomend this chicken enough! FABULOUS find:)!

        I just bought one last night at Acme in Milltown NJ for $12.49. I'm making a lot of food for company lunch tomorrow (as you may know from my green vegetable thread), so this seems like it'll be just the thing to keep the family happy for dinner tonight.

        Does this come frozen or refrigerated? This seems like a great thing to keep on hand.

          We had it while on vacation this past summer. Really exceeded expectations. It comes refrigerated, was in the kosher meat section at Shoprite, $11.99 if I remember correctly. It comes in a cook-in bag and can be microwaved or roasted in the oven. Really good!

            It was sold out of a refrigerated case, but can be frozen. I'd like top keep at lest one on hand for lazy nights:)

            How much was the chicken? I lately have a hard time to convince myself to buy raw chickens when I can get a ready to eat one from Brachs (here in the 5 towns) with a side for $10. If you subtract the cost of the side (~$4) that gives you the chicken price of $6 - less than what a raw one would cost me.

              I have to admit I have no clue how much it cost. My husband thought it looked good, it looked good to me and we bought it. I am sure your deal is the better one cost wise, but for me it is not an option - I live in the Philly burbs:(

              BTW it was almost ready to eat, you do need to heat it up in an oven or a microwave (which is how we did it) I think this would be a great option of a student (even in a dorm - most dorms allow a microwave) or someone who is traveling and wants a nice hot Kosher chicken for a meal.

                I am pretty sure I fpund the receipt and it says we bout a chicken for $12.49. Well worth it to us:) About the same as a store made Kosher rotiserie chicken and IMO MUCH tastier:)
