Rotisserie Whole Chicken (Just Like Boston Market)

Vickie Parks


I've made this with a whole chicken, and it's a lovely presentation that gets lots of oohs and ahhs. But my carving skills and patience leave a little to desire. So I tried making this with a cut-up fryer once, and it's just as delicious.

How to Make Rotisserie Whole Chicken (Just Like Boston Market)

  3. Mix all basting ingredients in a saucepan, and warm to melt the honey. Pour baste over the skin of the chicken.
