Rotisserie Style Chicken

This is my go to rotisserie style roast chicken recipe. I found it at All Recipes years ago and have been using it ever since! It does take a long time to roast because of the low temperature you roast at, but that is what makes this chicken so juicy! The slow cooking process of the chicken keeps the chicken from drying out, yet giving the chicken a crispy outer skin. Very tasty! Notice I didn't add the amount of lean in the recipe. This is because it will vary depending on how much your chicken weighs and whether you eat only the dark or just the white meat. You will need to take the skin off you chicken and remove the bones before weighing. I usually get about 4 servings so I get about 2.5 condiments per serving. Happy roasting!

Right from the oven! A nice golden brown! Delish and very juicy from the low baking temperature. Hubby eats the skin but I take the skin off and weigh only the meat to make sure I get 6 oz of white or 5 oz of dark meat.

Let the chicken marinate in the spice mixture overnight for the best flavor! Sometimes I add a tbsp of olive oil to make the spice mixture into a paste and then marinate.

All ready to be roasted!

Rotisserie Style Chicken

1 tsp salt  (4 Condiments)
1 tsp paprika (2 Condiments)
1/2 tsp onion powder (1 Condiment)
1/2 tsp tsp dried thyme ( 1/2 Condiment)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (1/2 Condiment)
1/4 tsp black pepper (1/2 Condiment)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (1/2 Condiment)

1 celery stalk, cut into 2 inch pieces

In a small bowl, mix all the spices together. Remove and discard giblets from chicken. Rinse chicken cavity and pat dry with paper towels. Rub chicken inside and out with spice mixture. Also, rub some spice mixture under the skin above the breast meat as well by loosening the skin at the top of the chicken. Place celery inside chicken. Place chicken in a resealable bag or double wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight or at least 4 to 6 hours.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place chicken in a roasting pan. Bake uncovered for about 3 hours, to a minimum internal temperature of 180 degrees. Two (4 lb) chickens should take 5 hours. Let the chicken stand for 10 minutes before carving.

Total recipe is 9 Condiments
I usually get about 4 Servings which would be 2.25 Condiments per Serving
