One of our favorite ways to prepare chicken for dinner, is by using the countertop oven. Ours comes with a rotisserie spit, perfect for barbecuing chicken indoors. While the chicken is roasting, I can prepare other side dishes for the meal.
All you need, is the rotisserie spit for your oven, some twine for tying and securing the chicken in place, and seasoning.
Countertop Oven Rotisserie Barbecue Chicken Recipe
This, is really easy. All you do, is remove the whole chicken from the packaging. Next, take out the innards you find inside the cavity of the chicken. Place the chicken on the spit, tie the legs and wings in place on the spit with some twine. Season the chicken, liberally. Place the chicken on the spit into the rotisserie oven, and cook it until it’s done. Allow the chicken to rest for a little while before carving. Allowing it to rest will keep the juices from draining out from the chicken, resulting in drier pieces. Carve the section pieces – the legs, and wings first. Then, proceed to carving slices from the breasts and thighs. These pieces are perfect for sandwiches the next day. Well, this is how we prepare countertop oven rotisserie barbecue chicken in our home.
