Rotisserie-Style Chicken (No Rotisserie Needed)

Rotisserie-Style Chicken (No Rotisserie Needed)

It’s super easy to make Rotisserie-Style Chicken (No Rotisserie Needed) at home. It’s fabulous, you control the ingredients & it can cost less than store-bought.


  • 1 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 pound chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon oil
  • spice rub, commercial or homemade, as little or as much as you want; see below for homemade seasoning


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Remove any giblets or neck from chicken. Mix up spice rub if making homemade. Sprinkle a little bit of the rub inside the chicken cavity. Truss chicken. Rub with the oil. Sprinkle additional seasoning on the chicken, as much or as little as you wish. Place on a rack over a pan to catch the drippings.

Roast 1 to 1 1/2 hours until chicken is cooked through (internal temperature in the thickest part of the thigh is 165.) If the breast meat reaches 165 sooner or begins to brown too much, cover it lightly with foil. As a rule, this isn’t an issue with these smaller chickens.

If desired, tent lightly with foil and rest for 10 – 15 minutes before serving.

Rotisserie Chicken Spice Rub:

  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric

Mix all ingredients together. Sprinkle on chicken.
