Costco Chicken Mediterranean Skewers Review

Looking for an great way to get some more protein into your diet? The Costco Chicken Medditeranean Skewers are a quick and easy option! 

Since I track my macros to make sure I am getting enough protein everyday, when I spotted these chicken skewers, I knew that I needed to try them. 

While I did love them and have purchase them many more times since, these are not my favorite option for pre-made chicken at Costco. 

There are some things I love about these Chicken Skewers, and also some things that I don’t.

Location, Item Number & Price

These can be found in the refrigerated section of the deli near the lunch meats. The item number is 1415808.

The package is $15.79 USD and it includes 14 grilled chicken skewers. Since each of the skewers don’t really have that much meat, you are really paying for the convenience of having premade chicken.

These are good, they’re are not my favorite, but they are not bad. I cooked my chicken skewers in the microwave following the cooking instructions listed on the package, and they were perfectly cooked and really hot. 

The overall taste of the chicken is good, they just don’t have any flavor to them. I couldn’t really taste any seasoning, they just taste like plain chicken.

I don’t dislike the chicken skewers, but there are a few things that I don’t really love.

First, when you open the package the chicken doesn’t smell the greatest, but once you cook the chicken it smells good. 

Also, I have purchased these many times, and sometimes the chicken meat is a little spongy and I have to toss out parts of the chicken because there are hard chucks of meat. 

While I don’t love these skewers (mostly because of the quality of chicken meat), they are a decent way to add extra protein into my diet. I normally remove the chicken from the stick, and then break it up into pieces. 

To give it more flavor I use bbq or dipping sauce. They are great to eat on their own or add into another meal like a salad.

The skewers come fully cooked so they are quick and easy to heat up. All you have to do is warm them up in the microwave or oven. The one thing that I don’t like about the package is that it is not resealable. After I open the pack, I normally put the skewers into a ziplock bag to keep them fresh longer.

Cooking Instructions

The chicken is already pre-cooked, but it does have to be heated. There are instructions for heating using the oven, grill, or microwave. 

I normally cook mine in the microwave, because it’s fast and easy. It does recommend the oven as the best way for heating.

Final Thoughts

While these are easy and convenient, they don’t taste that great and are ralther expensive for the amount of chicken that you get. 

Overall I would rate them a 7/10. While I don’t like that I often find hard chunks in the meat, they are great to have in the fridge if you are trying to meet your protein goals.
