Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

How did grocery stores get into the business of selling those lovely little fried chicken meals?

A:

Dear Ketchup's BFF,

According to the Wall Street Journal, "The rotisserie craze started in the early 1990s when Boston Chicken, now Boston Market, opened drive-through restaurants selling chicken dinners and sides. Families liked the convenience of a meal that was seen as cheaper and healthier than fast food. Costco and Kroger began selling rotisserie chickens in 1994." I'm guessing these beautiful chicken meals started about then as well.
