    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!
