Rotisserie Chicken

Who doesn’t like the flavor of a freshly cooked Rotisserie Chicken? This recipe is great as a main dish for family dinners and goes with my different side dishes like French Fries and Cole Slaw.

FAQ Q: What is the best way to ensure the chicken is cooked through and juicy? A: The key to ensuring the chicken is cooked through and juicy is to simmer it in chicken stock and the right spices. The added flavor from the garlic, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper really take it to the next level, and make sure it’s full of flavor!

Q: How long should I let the chicken rest after cooking? A: After you remove the chicken from the skillet, it’s important to let it rest for a few minutes so the juices have a chance to redistribute back into the chicken. This is key for achieving that perfect juicy Rotisserie Chicken!
