I love rotisserie chicken. Those chickens turn out so succulent, juicy and mouthwatering. You can serve almost any kind of side dish with them especially lots of fresh garden veggies. John and I usually only eat a few pieces of the chicken and then I have about 2 cups of meat leftover for another recipe. It’s a win-win for me.
I was really craving a rotisserie chicken today and planned on picking one up at H-E-B. But then, I decided to try my hand at making my own, instead. It turned out fabulous! I don’t have a rotisserie cooker, but I knew I wanted that basic taste of simple herbs and chicken without a lot of frills. This is easy, economical, quick and a delicious way to provide a main dish for your family. It only takes a handful of ingredients, too. I didn’t mess with tying the legs, I just placed the chicken in the roaster pan. This was really, really easy, and extremely tasty.
If you’re looking for E-A-S-Y, if you’re looking for S-I-M-P-L-E, if you’re looking for D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S, then here’s a quick recipe you can make for your family tonight.
Rotisserie Style Baked Chicken is a quick, easy, and tasty recipe you’re family will love.
You can make your own rotisserie chicken with this simple recipe.
Here’s what I did.
Sprinkle inside cavity of chicken generously with garlic salt and lemon pepper seasoning. Place in roaster pan.
Sprinkle outside of chicken generously with garlic salt, lemon pepper, and basil.
Bake in the oven at 350 for 2 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer reaches 180 degrees. I put this chicken in the pan dry, so it made a lot of broth afterwards (about one inch).
To serve: Cut each piece off the chicken, or slice down the chicken breast.
Here’s the recipe.
