Will Publix Break Down A Rotisserie Chicken For You?
By Angel Albring
Finding a fast, inexpensive way to get a quick meal isn't always easy, but grocery stores like Publix can help with a whole rotisserie chicken. Breaking down a whole rotisserie chicken can be a bit challenging, but fear not — Publix associates can assist with getting your rotisserie chicken dinner-ready.
Depending on how you plan to use it, you can ask the associate to carve the chicken or shred it, but you should be specific about how you want it broken down. If you want just a portion of the chicken, like 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 an entire chicken.
If you go during a lunch or dinner rush, you may be waiting a bit for 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, so the best times to snag one are close to 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m.
