  1. I agree with all of your picks, but how could you leave out the “best ever” rotisserie chicken for $4.99? I buy at least 2 a month and quickly de-bone it when I get home. I use it in homemade soup, chicken and dumplings, and chicken salad for sandwiches. The meat is seasoned, juicy and cooked to perfection. The chickens are at least 3 lbs. or more–not like the scrawny chickens you see in the grocery stores for $6.99-to $7.99. Costco cooks them in 4 huge rotisserie ovens that each holds about 30 chickens and these ovens run almost all day. That tells you how much chicken they sell everyday and how popular it is with shoppers.

      1. LOL 🤣🤣 exactly what I was thinking. But I appreciate the passion and love for the rotisserie because it is fabulous

    1. Thank you Linda, I thought I was the only happy one about the Costco rotisserie chicken. I buy at least 2 when I go there shopping. I hope they don’t cancel them. Out of stuck or change the recipe. It’s my every two weeks meal and good source of protein chicken grown without antibiotic superbe! Our Germain Shaped dog is also happy and enjoy it 🐶 too!

    2. Same here. I thought the rotisserie chicken on top of a bagged Ceasars salad, and I’m done! Not frozen, but good, fast, healthy, and cheap. I love it 😀

    3. Yes those chickens are delicious but I am boycotting them because of the incredible cruelty of the way the chickens are being kept. Many animal Rights groups are up in arms about it and consumer reports did an expose on it. I bought these chickens for many years but I can’t possibly enjoy eating one when I know the cruelty I am supporting here. Costco should be better than this and used to be. They used to have humane certified beef. I have no objection to eating meat but I believe we owe the animals whose lives are sacrificed to feed us compassion and kindness in the way they are kept and slaughtered. When Costco does some thing about this I will start buying their rosters again. It is shameful that they are ignoring this problem. Are used to be really proud to be a Costco member because I thought it was a wonderful corporation. This has tainted my view of them.

      1. Dear Margo
        I have a quick question for you….
        What gives you the right to have ANY opinion about how the chickens were raised? You lay the eggs? You build the facility’s they were raised in? You provide any of their sustenance. You fill up their water containers? You clean out their coops? You do anything to care for these animals? My guess is that you have done NOTHING for these animals other than yap your mouth. Until you have done any of these things for theses animals shut the BLEEP! up about them. If ya don’t want to eat them fine….. Otherwise keep your “KAREN” mouth shut!!!!!
        BTW I have NO affiliation with the Cosco corp. Just sick and tired of blab mouths putting in their .5 cents in when they have no real business doing so.

    4. Sorry Costcos rot chix r good first thing but they over cook them to 185 degrees..tasteless the next day. Give me walmarts any day.

    5. Phillips Crab Cakes, Japanese Chicken and Rice (can’t remember brand name) are favorites of mine. The crab cakes have gone up in price. There are six and are about $5 and change apiece (they used to be $3 and change).

    6. Unfortunately Costco chickens are packed with antibiotics and hormones. These are not organic free range chickens in thus, you get what you pay for. I love Costco – couldn’t live without them in fact. Organic produce is fresh and cheeses and vegetables move quickly with less chance of going bad versus Trader Joe’s prepackaged varieties. Unfortunately the chickens, besides being packed with excess sodium are simply unhealthy.

    7. Please note that it has been said that Costco does not have humanely raised chickens and they may be full of antibiotics to grow them large.

    8. The title of the article is “7 Costco FROZEN Meals Worth Buying.” Rotisserie chicken, which is wonderful, is not a frozen meal, it is a cooked meal. Costco has a lot of meals that have value, however that is not the purpose of this particular article.

  2. I agree the rotisserie chicken is the Best Buy. Hamburgers not so much they are expensive 18 burgers at 32.00 dollars. Costco has increased their meats and frozen food very much and very few items on sale anymore.
    Naples, fl

    1. That’s only $1.80 each which I don’t think is so bad. The problem with shopping at Costco to me is that you have to buy an 18 count pk. Why can’t they sell smaller pkg of their items? Maybe even have a Costco store set up like a Publix where you can buy a 1 or 2# pk of their delicious food. Why do I need to buy a freezer just to store all the extra food?

    2. $32.00 for 18 Sirloin Burgers equates to less than $2.00/burger…where can you get a burger for that price, especially a Sirloin Burger?

    1. Most people don’t look at the list of ingredients, or how much salt, sugar and difficult to pronounce additives. You are so correct, most frozen meals are not healthy.

    2. Reread the article. One of the pertinent points in how various choices are free of certain ingredients to make them healthier.

  3. One of my favorites (and a go to on busy days) is the frozen the Frozen Spinach and Mozzarella ravioli in the 2 lb package. A little oil and the included topping, plus a salad makes a nice meal. Or it can be
    “fancied up” by adding a favorite bottled pasta sauce and maybe some fresh spinach and mushrooms, or cooked shrimp.

  4. There is too much sugar in the Lasagna. It is way too sweet to compare it favorably with homemade. In addition concerning the rotisserie chicken that has received numerous comments -although it is not a frozen meal-it must be loaded with salt and MSG. Where does all that flavor come from if not from those two seasonings ?

  5. Wish you would have had pictures of the actual frozen meal packages instead of the generic pics so we could identify the meals in the store.

  6. I don’t mind buying the 18 count hamburgers (that’s 18 dinners) I also freeze the hot dogs (24 dinners there) and I buy the chicken pot pies the Japanese noodles, the spring rolls. I can go 3 months (at least) before going shopping again. Sometimes I buy the family meals and divide it up in single meals and freeze them.

  7. Why not just buy hamburger on sale half the price and just as healthy if not more and portion it and freeze it? Much of Costco is a rip off.

    1. Costco has never been a rip-off. We have shopped there since it started and it was Price Club. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. My husband is now gone and I’m 84, I still go.

    I enjoy shopping at Costco altough I have a problem as I am Celiac ,no gluten, . also since my husband died, I am all alone and cooking for one. Every one is so helpful. Keep; up the good work.

    1. Same situation for me. I generally buy the family size and cut into my portion size and wrap the other portions and put them in the freezer. Then I can use them if I don’t feel like cooking or if I have unexpected company. Add a salad or veg and you are good to go!!

    I have loved Costco for decades. Since my husband has been in Memory Care for over 2 years and is now in Hospice, I find the portions TOO MUCH. Please accommodate those of us who are suddenly cooking for one. I hate to waste food. THANKS.

  10. Marjorie Harms Leeb

    By the way, I went to the membership desk about my Credit Card continuing on without interruption after my husband passes. As you may know, most credit is in the name of the husband. When he passes the account is usually frozen. Since my husband is in Hospice there is a concern. Membership in Roseville was more than kind. With a Durable Power of Attorney, I was able to secure the account in my name. Costco and its workers are truly kind. THANKS TO ALL THE KIND-HEARTED WORKERS who see widows and the soon-to-be widows as valuable shoppers.

  11. I don’t see all the fuzz about treating chickens for food by giving them free range. they raise these hens for 42 days and whether they are cooped up or allowed to roam around in a big field they will be butchered just the same. is the purpose of allowing them to roam freely to give them a feeling of having a future? if that is so, it is cruel. I agree they are sometimes populated densely that others die. at the end survival of the fittest for 42 days. the weak ones you probably do not want to eat anyway. so long as they are raised in a reasonably sanitary way they should arrive at the rotisserie healthy and delicious.
