Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style Like the Deli
Blue Ribbon Recipe
I love rotisserie chicken, so I simply could not wait to try this recipe. We were in the middle of a deep-freeze when I tried this, so I opted to prepare it in the oven rather than on the grill. (You can bet I'll be out at the grill as soon as the weather warms up!) The flavor of the rub is really good - I think I will hide the leftovers from the rest of the family... The Test Kitchen

How to Make Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style Like the Deli
- In a small bowl, mix together salt, paprika, onion powder, thyme, pepper, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder.
- Remove and discard giblets from chicken. Rinse chicken cavity, and pat dry with paper towel. Rub chicken with oil then inside and out and under the skin with spice mixture. Place 1 onion into each cavity of the chicken. Place chicken in a resealable bag or double wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight, or at least 4 to 6 hours.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (120 degrees C).
Place chicken in a roasting pan. Bake uncovered for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, to a minimum internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C). Use meat thermometer to check in the thigh. Baste a few times the last hour if not using rotisserie. Let the chicken stand, covered in foil, for 10 minutes before carving.
