Roasted chicken worth the extra cost

Rush-hour remedies

November 05, 1997|By Maria Hiaasen

* Item: Tyson Ready-to-Eat Roasted Chicken

* Servings per package: 4

* Cost: $4.89 per pound

* Preparation time: Eat straight from the package, microwave 6 to 9 minutes, or heat for 35 minutes in conventional oven.

* Review: If this gem isn't routinely on your shopping list, it should be. Tyson has roasted and shrink-wrapped a chicken for you, one-upping the grocery deli, because the Tyson version keeps (in the fridge) for at least a week. I nuked a bird on a busy weeknight, and my family was delighted with the tender and tasty results. Expensive? Yes, but it's so quick and easy, I considered it worth the price. Some grocers also carry Tyson's ready-to-eat roasted chicken pieces, such as breast halves.
