Rotisserie Style Chicken Recipe

How to cook a rotissierie style chicken at home

I love the flavor of rotisserie style chicken from the store, but at least in our area, we can’t find organic or free range chicken cooked rotisserie style.

In the past, I’d bought a couple rotisserie chicken every couple of weeks and we’d use the meat to make chicken salad, casseroles, and the bones to make soup and broth. I didn’t like the idea of using non-organic chickens or bones to make broth, so I wanted to find a way to duplicate the flavors of rotisserie chicken at home.

Now, I pre-make this on the weekend and keep the meat for recipes and the bones for broth for the week. Give it a try! It is fast and easy and delicious!

The secret is in the spices, which create a similar flavor to store-bought rotisserie chicken.

I love to stretch this recipe and I’ll often cook two chickens at once, put the bones in the slow cooker to make broth, make a batch of chicken salad for later in the week, and use the remaining leftovers for a casserole or soup.
