How long to cook rotisserie chicken
- Stuff the bird with available fresh herbs and an unpeeled onion, quartered.
- Mix a teaspoon of sea salt with a tablespoon of garlic olive oil.
- Dry the skin with a tea-towel and rub the olive oil into the skin.
- A 1.5kg bird cooks in 1 hour 15 minutes on the rotisserie setting (grill: 250 C / 475° F)
It's an idea to place an oven tray with an inch of water under the bird to prevent dripping fat from burning.
Note: It was great until the rotisserie motor bearing seized-up a year later. However, since that happened, we've discovered a far better way to cook chicken; the Beer can chicken method. It produces a moist chicken with crispy skin and is better than any rotisserie anyway!
