We love to make chicken on the rotisserie grill because it turns out so darn good, crispy on the outside, and so moist and flavorful on the inside, and healthy besides. We used no salt in this chicken, and we don't eat the skin, which is really hard not to do. We used all of our fresh herbs, basil, lemon thyme, and rosemary from our patio, and placed them under folds of the skin on the breast, which made it taste even better. First, we rub olive oil all over the outside of the chicken, after it is washed and patter dry. Then, place the fresh herbs under the skin of the breast. In the cavity we placed four cloves of garlic, the zest of two lemons, and then slices from the those two lemons, and about 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Truss your chicken with string. Here is a link to a video on how to truss you chicken, How to Truss a Chicken. The main reason to truss a chicken is to make sure that the breast is juicy. If you don't truss the chicken, the air circulates in the cavity, and the breast dries out before the legs and thighs are done .Mmmm. maybe Scott should see this video, but there is more than one way to truss your chicken. Rotisserie. per the instructions of your grill. You can also roast in the oven at 325 degrees F, until the internal temp of the chicken is 165 degrees F. Once chicken has reached the internal temp of 165 degrees F, remove from grill or oven, and let rest for 15-20 min, before carving. Enjoy!
We had fresh green beans from Pauli's garden, steamed, with garlic, lemon thyme, and lemon juice, half a baked sweet potato, to go with the herbed chicken. It was so flavorful with all of the herbs, Yum! You also have a lot of leftover chicken for sandwiches, salads, tostadas, or tacos, just to mention a few.
