Slow Rotisserie-style Chicken

Ann from Maryland has a way with spices, and her recipes for Slow Rotisserie-style Chicken don’t disappoint. This dish is a stand-alone main meal, or a compliment to other dishes when side-by-side on the dinner or buffet table. Ann is quick to point out that her chicken has none of the added phosphates commonly found in store-roasted chicken. Pair with rice and veggies and you have a complete meal!

Helpful hints

  • Instead of poultry season try a tablespoon of combined fresh thyme, oregano, marjoram, or several sprigs rosemary. If using fresh herbs place some in the cavity and some between the skin of the chicken and the breast meat.
  • Add peeled carrots and celery to bag, if desired.
  • The whole fresh or frozen chicken does not have phosphate additives frequently found in store-roasted chicken.
  • For a lower or higher protein diet adjust the portion to match your meal plan.
