Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Made  times

"Ever wish you could get that restaurant-style rotisserie chicken at home? Well, with minimal preparation and about 5 hours' cooking time (great for the weekends!) you can! I don't bother to baste the bird, though some like to for the first hour. The pan juices always caramelize at the bottom, and the chicken will turn golden brown...fall-off-the-bone good!"

We followed the recipe exactly and the skin turned out very dry and tough. The meat was still moist but it did not remind me of rotisserie chicken. It was really just okay. Not bad but not am...

This is a GREAT chicken recipe. I'm sure most of it has to do with the baking technique, but the spice combination is great too. This chicken was falling off of the bones! I baked a 4 lb chic...
