Because I keep kosher (organic), everything is much more expensive and I simply can't afford to waste anything. When I purchase a rotisserie chicken, I strip the meat from the bones and use the bones and non-meaty part of the chicken wings to make chicken broth for my next batch of chicken soup, some of which I freeze in ice cube trays for a quick cup-of-soup. I save the skin to add as "seasoning" in my fresh veggies and afterwords, a nice "treat" for my dogs.

I do that too! I don't know what kind of seasoning Costco uses on their chicken, but it is so good. I use the skin and bones and sometimes onions and simmer for an hour or so. It sure makes some good stock! I hate to throw anything away. I bought it, so I use it!
After reading the post about roasting the bones, I will try that next time, sounds good. Of course, roasting just about anything makes it better.
