Rotisserie chicken

Rotisserie is a style of roasting where meat is skewered on a spit - a long solid rod used to hold food while it is being cooked over a fire in a fireplace or over a campfire, or roasted in an oven. The rotation cooks the meat evenly in its own juices and allows easy access for continuous basting if desired. Source - Wiki.

I had a very strong desire to bake the whole chicken in this Rotisserie style. But my Hus alone cannot eat so much chicken. So decided to experiment with a small piece. The end results were good, said my hus who tasted it. I was very happy as my son liked it. Who knows what kids like??

  • One whole leg of Chicken – approx 200g
  • Pepper Powder ½ tsp or acc. to your taste
  • Salt
  • Juice from a Lemon
  • Oil 2-3 tsp


Marinate Chicken with all the other ingredients and keep it aside for half an hour.

  • Preheat Oven to 225°C for 10 minutes.
  • Once done, arrange the marinated chicken in between the rotisserie spit.
  • Allow to bake for 35-40 minutes or till done.
