    I often have a rotisserie chicken. I had no idea it should be syn'd. I just treated it as a roast chicken :(

    I've heard that they inject the chicken with fat! Sort of reverse liposuction!

    Strange as I got told that so long as I remove the skin or syn the skin then it was free but I suppose it depends on what they use to make them so crispy and brown. I don't mind as it's my once a week treat as I love chicken and have some every Saturday but I can't eat a whole half.

    I don't buy ready made chicken but do make roast chicken at home, and taking the skin off is something I never do. It's the best part!
    That is one thing I am naughty about, as I don't syn it either. I don't have it that often and I have never put on on the weeks that I've had it so I will continue! ;)

    I was told ones from Waitrose and M&S were ok as they were less likely to have crap added to them. I might ask at Waitrose today if they add anything to them when they roast them.

    Dear Miss

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I have spoken to our Food Safety team who have confirmed that these chickens are not injected or basted with fats or oils before cooking.

    Yours sincerely

    hi, i wanted to enquire about the rotisserie chickens that are cooked in store. are these basted/injected with any fats/oils before cooking? the reason i ask is that i am on a diet which allows me to eat un-limited quantities of lean meats or roast meats cooked without fat. there are so many forums online that discuss this matter but if you could clarify it would be a huge help. many thanks

    the syn values that have been found online dont mention anything about taking the skin off...so could the syns not be from skin?

    i used to work at asda on the rotis counter and i know for a fact the chicken is not pumped with oil or even brushed with it before its cooked !!

    its literally just put on the giant skewers and cooked and the fat usually drains off whilst cooking...

    the flavoured pieces may have oils in the recipes and but plain chicken, either whole, thighs or drums do not have oil added before they are cooked in store

    hope this helps :D x
