Ingredients

  • 1 3.5# chicken, free range (if possible)
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Rotisserie Seasoning

Instructions

  • Rinse chicken and place in pot just large enough to fit in.  
  • Heat sugar, salt and 1 cup water in a small pan and stir until dissolved to make brine.
  • Pour brine over chicken, then add plain water to pot to just cover chicken. Place pot in refrigerator and allow to soak overnight.
  • Remove chicken from pot and discard brine. Pat chicken dry with paper towels or allow to air dry for 15-20 minutes. Truss chicken, then coat all over with rotisserie seasoning.
  • Place chicken on spit per your rotisserie oven directions and cook for about an hour or until temp in thickest part of thigh reaches 165 degrees. Allow chicken to rest 10-15 minutes before serving for best flavor.

Notes

Feel free to leave off the sugar in the brine if you desire.  Here's a link discussing the role of sugar:  Sugar enhances the browning of the rotisserie chicken but does not affect the texture of the meat.
