    ArtistsFoodPalette's Note:

    I worked this recipe last summer while I had oodles of fresh herbs growing in the garden. I remembered years ago placing fresh basil under the skin of a turkey I baked for Thanksgiving and decided lets try this with many herbs. It is so delicious the family begs for my rotisserie chickens! You can do this on a BBQ or kitchen rotisserie. You can prepare the chicken earlier and let it marinade in the fridge for the day as well before cooking. It will intense the flavors. I also place the herbs and garlic inside the bird.
