I encountered this online:
Aye do them roast history chickens at walmart be good??? [and then in response to a request for clarification] roast history chickens the ones that be in the deli
Almost all the examples yielded by googling were references to the example I gave above. The few possible exceptions include:
Roast History Chicken is THE BEST. looked like you enjoyed it.
...and these last two, both from this discussion :
Anyone ever get those roast-history chickens for only a couple bucks at Walmart or Costco?
I worked in a grocery mart and was tasked with putting the birds into the roast-history machine. It kind of turned me off of buying them, because the machine was very dirty, and I wouldn’t clean it properly.
Apart from finding very few examples, I think this could qualify as an eggcorn, as those roasted chickens at the store clearly have a (hopefully recent) “roast history”.
