I’ve been excited all week to share this recipe with you. I am wishing we still had some of this left, and already planning for the next time we make a juicy, delicious, herbed rotisserie chicken.

We are BIG fans of the grocery store rotisserie chickens. They are easy, and delicious, BUT there’s something about the texture that is just a little…off. Most grocery stores inject their chickens with a solution of salt and various other additives that help the birds retain moisture, but I think it also breaks down the meat a bit and leaves the texture seriously lacking.

Herbed Rotisserie Chicken

This Herbed Rotisserie Chicken is made with a simple dry rub liberally spread all over the chicken, and then it’s slow roasted on a rotisserie spit.

If you don’t have a rotisserie yet, I highly highly recommend it. Having a rotisserie opens up SO many culinary doors to you! Investing in a good quality grill is important. You’ll get more even cooking, durable design and dependability, and the best customer service in the industry.
