I have been playing with this spice combination for a while now and I think I have it as close as I'm going to get it to the famous Canadian ''Swiss Chalet'' rotisserie chicken. I hope you all enjoy it :) I serve this with my Bea's Version of Swiss Chalet Dipping Sauce Where I have listed instant tomato soup mix, I use the lipton tomato cup-a-oup mix, I sift it to take the croutons out. I tried entering this in the ingredients and it would not accept it that way. This recipe is enough to marinade two 2.5 lbs chickens or one 5 lb chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together in plastic bag. Poke holes into a whole chicken. Place chicken in bag and let marinade at least 6 hours or overnight.
  2. Cook chicken in rotisserie oven at 350 degrees for 2 to 2 1/2 hours . Or cook with your prefered method.

I have never had Swiss Chalet chicken to compare, but this version is absolutely delicious! I cannot find the Cup a Soup here anymore, so with Pink's permission, I used 2 tsp. of tomato paste, with great results. I used my outdoor rotisserie. Great flavor and meat was very moist. (I used my injector and injected some of the marinade into the bird just before cooking). I also subbed onion powder for the onion salt.
