Rotisserie Style Chicken From your Oven

This is a recipe I printed off the TOH board. The person's name that submitted the recipe wasn't on the printed recipe. Sorry I can't give credit to who ever posted it. It's really good one and I'll be making it again.

4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 onions, quartered
2 whole chickens - used a roaster

Few other things I added

Slap Ya Mama spice - I added about 1/2 teaspoon

4 cloves of garlic which I added to the cavity along with the onion


Rinse and dry your chicken or chickens if you are going to cook two.

Mix all the above spices together and rub into the chicken and I also added the mixture under the skin.

I added the chicken to a very large bowl or you could use a  large plastic bag and covered and put in the refrigerator overnight.

Next day I preheated the oven to 250 degrees

Placed the chicken on a rake in a roasting pan. The cavity which was also rinsed and dry before I added the spices I added the onion, which I used one and the garlic cloves.

Bake 5 hours or until to a minimum internal temperature of 180 degrees. Always check  in the thigh, just like when I cook a turkey. It may take longer with a roaster, my wasn't a big fat one. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before you cut into it.

We liked it. Very moist and the skin was crisp. Easy way to make rotisserie chicken.

  1. Morning. My Linda, that looks wonderful. You can eat for days off of that great looking roast. My favorite way to roast Slow & Low. You will have a winner every time.

    Like the ingredients in the spice mix too and the garlic in the cavity a nice little bonus. You are going to be eating very healthy. Thanks for sharing the Recipe and that great looking photo.


  2. That looks delicious Linda. I don't buy rotisserie chickens at the store-I just don't trust them. I'd rather make my own and add the ingredients we enjoy-AND know what's in it. Gonna give this one a try-I got a super deal on roasting chickens and popped a couple in the freezer-this will be PERFECT for one of them.

    I'm gonna follow your lead and pop some garlic in the cavity-everything's better with garlic! :)
