Dear Costco…

If you were to ask me what are the top things I buy at Costco, I would tell you

  1. Rotisserie chicken
  2. Heavy cream
  3. String cheese
  4. Sour cream
  5. Salad Greens

I am not a Costco bulk shopper. I often stop in to grab two things; rotisserie chicken and heavy cream. Heavy cream because my husband consumes a lot of it and I like it in my coffee. Rotisserie chicken, because dinner and future meals and chicken stock and yes.

I absolutely love the value of the rotisserie chicken. At our Costco, it is $5. I can’t buy a raw chicken for $5.

The fact that the chicken is cooked and ready to eat is a win, win, win.

Making the Chicken Salad

My friend told me that she cooks chicken in the Instant Pot then shreds it in her Kitchen Aid mixer. So, after dinner and taking the extra meat off the rotisserie chicken, I shredded it in the mixer. I used the peace-sign paddle. Let me find the proper name of that, apparently, it is called the flat beater. It only took a few whips before the chicken was ready to go.

I like Asian food. Having lived in China, I can promise you that there will be plenty of Asian-inspired recipes. Are they anything you find in Asia? Who knows.

My secret weapon for some of my favorite Chinese foods is… whisper… sesame oil. If you’re making a stir fry and they taste a little flat, you probably are missing this key ingredient. If you are allergic to sesame, then I am very, very sorry.

This chicken salad can be eaten on a low carb bread, sprouted bread, over a salad or as lettuce wraps. You choose. Please recognize, I probably didn’t give you all of the choices, please don’t let my short list limit you.

This was good the day I made it and it was extra good the next day. I think letting this sit overnight in the fridge gives a more dynamic taste. I love salt. So, as you prepare it, taste it and add enough salt to your liking!

    I’m definitely going to try this. I’m low carb and my husband is gluten free. This will do for both of us. I know Sam’s rotisserie chicken is gf.

    • Hey Susannah, great to see you here! Just make sure that you use GF soy sauce (like tamari) and you’ll be great! I hope you enjoy this!!

    I have never thought of using my kitchen aid to shred chicken, such a great tip. I too make chicken salad from rotisserie chicken. I’m going to give your recipe a try. Catherine

    • Hey Catherine! Thanks for stopping by! My friend told me about the Kitchen Aid idea. It is so fast, so watch out that it doesn’t turn into chicken mush, haha. Enjoy, let me know how it goes <3.

  • This recipe looks fantastic! Great idea to use Greek yogurt to make it lighter than just straight mayo. Also, I never thought to use Costco’s rotisserie chicken (which I do love!) to make chicken stock! Thanks for sharing!

    • I’m glad you like the recipe! Even making some lower carb choices can make a difference. I wouldn’t say someone has to go full blown Keto to see differences!

    • Hi Erika!
      Oh that is a tricky question! I have not made this DF nor am I super familiar with dairy substitutes but possibly a DF cream cheese or plain yogurt would suffice. It only calls for a small portion of dairy, so perhaps adding extra mayonnaise would be alright. Otherwise, I would possibly add some coconut cream. If you try, let me know and I can add it to the notes!

  • This is a great recipe1 We love to make things in lettuce as it cuts down on the carbs and the rotisserie chicken is always a win. It saves so much time and has so many different applications. Thanks for sharing and pssst …. sesame oil is AWESOME!
