Healthier eating doesn’t get any easier than cooking your own rotisserie chicken
With the calendar inching closer and closer to spring and summer, it may be time to check in with your New Year healthier eating resolutions. Have you gone back to old habits? Do you find yourself grabbing a quick bite to eat at a drive-thru window more often than you would like to admit? Do you eat a lot of chicken and fish because they are healthy options, but find yourself getting bored with your lunches and dinners?
If you’ve committed to making a change toward a healthy and fit lifestyle, then you are well aware that the transformation is not always an easy one. There are definitely challenges – and temptations – along the way.
The good news is that you are not alone. As people across the country switch to leaner proteins, less sugar options, and lower-fat dairy, food industries have adapted, too. You see more soda companies offering smaller sizes and more zero-sugar flavors, for example. Entire aisles at the grocery store have evolved to offer more organic and gluten-free selections.
Well, kitchen appliance manufacturers also follow trends and have picked up on the fact that consumers not only want fresh, healthful food, but they also want healthier ways to prepare it at home themselves.
We all know that chicken is a good choice as a lean protein. However, you can only consume so many grilled and baked chickens before you start to dream about a nice, big, juicy burger, right?
Have you ever thought about preparing a rotisserie chicken instead? There’s a reason why those golden brown birds are cooked near the front of nearly every grocery store around the dinner hour – rotisserie chickens are juicy, healthy, versatile, and flavorful. Let’s take a look at those four benefits that are a little closer.
Rotisserie chickens are juicy. Because they are rotated, the whole bird cooks nice and evenly, resulting in a rotisserie chicken that is moist and tender. Unlike a whole chicken roasted in the oven at home or left to languish in the slow cooker all day, there are no parts that are overcooked, undercooked, or burnt.
There are machines that let you recreate the grocery store experience at home, but these tend to be on the expensive side and take up a whole lot of room on the kitchen counter.
That’s why we were thrilled recently to find a real gem – a portable non-electric self-rotating rotisserie that puts healthy deliciousness within reach any day of the week. Called the ROTO-Q 360, it conveniently and efficiently cooks rotisserie chicken right in your oven – without any fuel, power or gas. It even folds down to fit into a drawer and can easily be assembled in just three steps:
- Pop it open
- Lock on the spit
- Crank the knob on the powercore
Rotisserie chickens are healthier. Did you know that rotisserie chickens have 90% less fat than those prepared using other traditional methods, such as roasting, sautéing, and frying? It makes sense because sautéing and frying involve different types of oil or lard and roasted chickens often have other ingredients and flavorings added, such as bacon, that help keep the chicken moist but add more calories than needed.
There’s even been a lot of news circulated lately that store-bought rotisserie isn’t as healthy as once thought due to injections of fat and sodium-laden broth that are added to keep the chicken as juicy as possible.
When you prepare a rotisserie at home, like with the ROTO-Q 360, you are in charge of what ingredients are added for flavor without any hidden surprises.
The Roto-Q 360 Rotisserie device is designed to be portable that can seamlessly fit into any home kitchen, if you have an oven then you can become a master chef in rotisserie cooking, just place your Roto-Q 360 device in your oven and your rotisserie career start today!
- The Roto-Q 360 is a versatile cooking device that can cook various types of dishes, such as fish, steak, poultry, and veggies, all weighing up to 5lbs. With its different attachment, you can get creative with your manual, and even try roasting coffee beans or popcorn. The possibilities are endless!
Once the meat and carcass are removed from the ROTO-Q 360, simply pop the pieces in the dishwasher or sink to wash. Roasting pans can take a lot of elbow grease to scrub clean.
