Kittencal's Better Than Take-Out! Deli-Style Rotisserie Chicken

READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 1 chicken




  • In a saucepan combine oil, margarine, honey, lime juice, garlic powder, paprika and seasoned salt over medium-low heat, stirring until honey is melted; cool slightly.
  • Wash chicken then dry with paper towels.
  • Season the inside of the chicken cavity with seasoned salt (any amount desired).
  • Poke holes all over the lemon then place inside the cavity.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the oil/margarine mixture liberally all over the outside of the chicken (save the remaining oil mixture to baste the chicken while cooking).
  • Prepare the chicken for the spit by securing together with heavy string if needed.
  • Place the chicken on rotisserie rod and secure tightly.
  • Sprinkle with black pepper if desired.
  • Cook at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes or until cooked through, basting with the oil/butter mixture while the chicken is cooking (cooking time will vary depending on the size of your chicken or turkey).
  • When the chicken has finished cooking, wrap completely in foil and let sit for about 20 minutes before serving (this is an important step to lock in the juices!).
  • Delicious!
