I found this recipe while searching for something comparable to the discontinued Tyson's cooked, packaged rotisserie chickens (I was addicted to these and was very upset when I found out Tyson had stopped making them). I tried this recipe last night, but had to omit the lime juice as I forgot to pick some up, I also used butter as I did not have margarine. After cooking for awhile I was afraid I had done something wrong; the chicken started to look burned because of the honey and butter. As I carved the chicken I thought "this is going to taste like char". But I was shocked to find the chicken tasted incredible, the meat was tender and juicy with an incredible flavor and the skin didnt taste burnt at all! It was comparable to the chickens I buy at boston market only about 10 times better. Today I heated up the remaining thigh and leg in the microwave and discovered It tasted exactly like the Tyson's chicken when reheated! This was by far the best rotisserie chicken I've ever had! I made an account just so I could thank you for it. Now Im looking at your other recipes and they look delicious. Thanks KittenCal's!!!!

If you do not make this because it is "rotisserie", then you are missing out!!!! This is extremely flavorful and easy. I just roast the chicken on a rack > Leftovers (not likely) are great on a sandwich

I have used this recipe many times, mainly with a 12 to 14 pound turkey on the Farberware Rotisserie. EVERY TIME it turns out perfect. I always love it when people tell me what the Farberware can and cant handle. If you have a Farberware, it can handle up to a 14 pound turkey no problem. Thank you for posting !!!!! :)

I actually just used the ingredients as a marinade for some chicken strips I wanted to use in a salad with some apples & toasted almonds. I thought the rotisserie flavor would go well, and so I was happy to find this recipe- the lime juice helped it marinate quickly (about 45 min)and the other flavors worked just as I'd hoped--a mock rotisserie! I'm sure it would be even better following the usual rotisserie method.

Yummy! Made this for supper last night and we loved it! Thank you for the very clear instructions. I did not use a whole lemon because I live in small-town USA and the grocery didn't have any, but it was still amazing! Thanks again!

Kittencal you have done it again! The chicken was just scrumptious, and so moist and flavorful! Thanks for a super recipe we will use often.

What a fabulous recipe! My DH and I just got a new grill with a rotisserie and this was the first recipe we tried on it. Your instructions were very, very clear and the chicken was moist and sooooo tasty! I can assure you that this recipe is going directly into my Favorites cookbook and will be made over and over. Thanks so much for posting, Kitten! And by the way, my DH insisted I get right up for the dinner table and tell you how good the chicken is! To quote him directly, "Yummers!"

So good!! I should have listen to you about making two chickens - we picked the bird down to the bones and still wanted more. The only thing that I added is a couple of hours of the bird sitting in a brine. Thanks
