How To Make Rotisserie Grill Chicken
*Before you begin make sure you have a grill that is equipped to roast chicken rotisserie style. Most, but not all grills can so check to see if yours is the right type.*
To prepare your chicken: lightly rub the 2 tablespoons of Olive oil all over the chicken so it is coated. The Olive oil should go on first because it will help the other ingredients to stick to the chicken. Now that your chicken is coated with the oil sprinkle the 1 tablespoon of garlic powder across it and rub it in, followed by the salt and pepper. Use as much or as little as you want when it comes to the salt and pepper.
Once your chicken is seasoned you will stick it on the grill prongs to rotate while it roasts on the barbecue. The prongs should slide right in through the chicken from each end and meet in the middle inside the chicken with no problem. Make sure the chicken is secured on the prongs, then place it on the grill and turn the rotisserie on.
When the rotisserie is on the flames on the main section of the grill does not come on; instead flames appear along the back section to roast the chicken while it’s turning on the prongs. The chicken will roast for about an hour and 25 minutes before it is golden brown and ready.
Just before the chicken is done take a drop more of Olive oil and mix it with a dash of garlic powder and a pinch more of salt and pepper. Then take a basting brush and coat the chicken again to keep it moist and give it a nice glaze. Let it turn for another five minutes, then remove it from the grill.
This rotisserie chicken recipe will leave you chicken that is moist and succulent on the inside with a tasty, crisp skin on the outside. Enjoy this chicken any day of the week: it is so good it will have you going back for seconds
