Takeout Tip: Rotisserie Chicken at Fairway

Fairway Market has fed countless time-strapped New Yorkers with its ready-to-eat rotisserie chickens. "I get them quite often," says Ann900, a regular at the Upper West Side branch. "I especially like the rotisserie chicken with Latin spices, but they also have them with garlic and lemon, BBQ, and plain." Half chickens, sold at some locations of the grocery minichain, cost around $4.50. "Tasty and good value on the nights you don't feel like cooking," says Ann, who also shares a reheating tip: Use a steamer instead of the oven or microwave. "Keeps the meat moist, even if the skin is soft."
