Top 9 Rotisserie Chicken Recipes

Everyone knows how great rotisserie chicken is. The problem is, everyone buys it at the store when it is so much better made at home. Don't worry, it is also amazingly easy. Of course, a rotisserie kit is necessary, but it is a fantastic way to add versatility to virtually any grill. I know that grilling a whole chicken doesn't require a rotisserie, but as the bird turns, it self-bastes, making a more moist and tender meal. Do yourself a favor and get a rotisserie kit for your grill and try one or all of these great recipes.

    Instead of individual tandoori chicken pieces, try the whole chicken rotisserie style. The secret to this rotisserie chicken is in the mild, but flavorful Indian marinade, and the secret to the marinade is in the yogurt. Yogurt is slightly acidic, and that draws out the flavors of the spices and then holds them tightly to the chicken. Be careful loading this marinated chicken onto the rotisserie spit so as to keep as much of the marinade in place as possible. This will allow the marinade to roast right on the chicken.
