Posted in response to a request for rotisserie recipes. This is a mainstay for rotisserie use. It turns out wonderfully crusted and juicy
- Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees Broil or Top heat mode.
- Discard the innards of each chicken, rinse the cavity and dry thoroughly with paper towels.
- Combine the seasoning and olive oil, gently loosen the skin covering the breast, smear some of the mix over the meat and rub the remainder into the chicken skin.
- Squeeze some lemon juice into the cavity of each chicken and stuff the lemons inside.
- Tuck the wings under the legs and tie the legs together with a little dampened string.
- Thread the chickens onto the skewer and roast for 20 minutes, remember to add the drip pan to the oven.
- Lower the heat and continue cooking at 350 degrees for the remainder of the cooking time, approximately 50 minutes.
Tish, We have tried many of the recipes you have posted, and have never been disappointed. We recently "splurged" by buying a rotisserie oven that is large enough to cook a large turkey (although we haven't tried that yet). Using the Herbes de Provence recipe (without the lavender, unfortunately), we gave this a spin with a 5-pound hen, and the results were marvelous! Thank you so much for sharing the great recipes, and best of luck with the PTL presidency.
I am so glad I found this recipe! We use our George Forman Rotisserie a lot and this is by far the best chicken we have made to date. I used Troy's Herbes de Provence Recipe #18553 (minus the Rosemary) since I did not have the herb mixture premixed. This is a very well seasoned bird. You can taste the fabulous herbs and the lemon in every bite! Packed full of flavor and really a pretty bird. I just set the rotisserie to 70 minutes and let her spin... the bird sat in the rotisserie for about 45 minutes before I removed it. Excellent Chicken and I would recommend it to anyone who love the flavors of herbes de provence!
