Top 5 Rotisserie Chicken Recipes (For Your Grill)

IMG_4096-Italian-Black-and-Red-Pepper Rotisserie Chicken with Italian Black and Red Pepper Dry Brine
A simple, straightforward rotisserie chicken, dry brined the night before with salt and a mix of black and red peppers. This is the chicken I make for myself, more often than not.
DSC_4971 - Version 3 Rotisserie Grilling: Barbecued Chicken
When I was a kid, backyard barbecued chicken was pieces of chicken, doused in barbecue sauce and grilled. Want the ultimate version of backyard barbecued chicken? Spin it on the rotisserie. Just remember – don’t glaze it with the barbecue sauce until the last 15 minutes or so of cooking. Too long in the heat and the barbecue sauce will burn.
Chicken-Onto-the-grill Rotisserie Chicken With Fennel, Coriander, and Red Pepper Spice Rub
Here’s a fancier version of dry brined chicken, with a rub of cracked fennel and coriander seeds. Again, I’m adding some red pepper flakes to give it a hit of heat – can you tell I like a little spice in my cooking?

Bourbon and maple glazed rotisserie chicken is decadent and delicious.1 Please steal the drip pan potatoes idea from this recipe – you want to cook potatoes in dripping chicken juices, no matter what kind of chicken you’re making.

Spanish smoked paprika is my favorite “secret ingredient” – it adds a subtle smoky flavor to whatever it cooks. Of course, it goes great with chicken.

    My husband made a rotisserie chicken with the Spanish paprika rub last night – it was delicious. He brined the chicken first, and stuffed the cavity with lemons and onions, too. Yum!
