When I think of my rotisserie chicken recipes, my mouth waters. Nothing
tastes better than bringing a warm chicken home from the supermarket.
Did you know you can easily make this at home?
Just buy some whole chickens on sale and fire up the grill (or the Ronco), and use my homemade rotisserie chicken rub recipe.
This is a dry rub and the chickens need to chill in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours before roasting.
BEST ROTISSERIE CHICKEN RECIPE
2 whole chickens
Rotisserie Chicken Rub Recipe:
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/2 tsp homemade onion powder
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp thyme
4 TBS garlic, minced
Mix all of the rub ingredients together in a small bowl. Remove the giblets and discard. Wash the chickens thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels. Rub each chicken inside and out and place in a resealable bag; wrapping again in foil. Chill in the refrigerate to marinate for at least 24 hours. DO NOT skip this step.
Prepare the rotisserie and place the chickens on it. Roast until done and ENJOY. You may also slowly roast the chickens in the oven. Preheat to 250 degrees and place the chickens in a roasting pan and cook uncovered for 5 hours, or until a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees in the thickest part of the chicken.
Drizzle the chickens with the pan drippings and wrap in foil. Let sit for at least 10 minutes before carving.
To make chicken gravy, add a can of chicken broth mixed with 1 tablespoon cornstarch to the pan juices, and let boil till thicken.
In a hurry? Use 5 or 6 chicken breasts or thighs with bone. Skip the onion and marinating. Instead, toss seasonings & chicken in a large oven roasting bag, shake till chicken are all evenly coated. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1-1/2 hours.
