Chicken Marinade Rotisserie

A rotisserie oven is a great way to cook chicken and a lot of people believe that rotisserie chicken has a better flavor and texture than chicken cooked on the grill or baked in the oven. Rotisserie chickens are cooked on a spit. As the spit rotates, the chicken cooks evenly and the juices distribute freely through the bird, keeping the chicken moist.

No wonder rotisserie chickens are so popular. You just cannot beat the succulence or flavor. In the old days rotisserie chickens would be cooked the most labor-intensive way because someone had to turn the spit by hand! Today we do not have this problem, since rotisserie ovens work electronically of course.

If you use a good chicken marinade rotisserie recipe, you can add extra flavor to your chicken. Since you are using a whole chicken (and that is a lot of bird to marinate at once!) let the bird sit in the marinade overnight, to really let the flavor penetrate throughout the flesh of the chicken. The following recipe contains herbs, spices, mustard, instant soup mix and more, for a complex and delicious flavor. Chicken marinade rotisserie recipes vary but this one is a real winner.

Photo Description:

Cooking a chicken on a rotisserie means it will come out looking like the one in this photo. It will be evenly colored and evenly moist because it has rotated the whole time it was cooked. Sometimes roast chicken can be juicier in one side or dried out and burnt on one side and much lighter on the other, but you do not get that problem with a rotisserie oven because the bird cooks evenly. It also tastes incredible if you use a marinade before cooking it. Serve the chicken with potatoes, fries, rice or pasta, as well as your favorite salad or vegetables.
