Ok, I have to apologize for being so scarce on the blog and social media lately.  It’s been a crazy Christmas vacation!  We traveled to see family for Christmas so I was busy getting ready for that and if you remember from my sweet and spicy pecans post our Christmas vacation was getting off to a rocky start.  Then during our visit 2 of ours came down with the flu on Christmas Day.  I knew right then we were in for it and had no choice but to try and head for home.

**Just a quick disclaimer- skip the next couple of paragraphs of the post if you have a weak stomach.**

We had a 7 hour journey ahead of us and it wasn’t looking too pretty.  We weren’t very far into the trip and our second oldest couldn’t find a bucket quick enough and she sprayed the entire back half of our van…….. in vomit.

UGH!

It was EVERYWHERE and all over her.  My 6 year old was very concerned about her new doll that had just been doused but all I could think was how am I going to clean this up?????  It took a ton of paper towels and an iron stomach but I managed to get it cleaned up enough that we could continue on home.  It was a very long trip and we made it home at 1 in the morning with 6 vomiting kids.

It didn’t stop at just those 6 we have all managed to get the flu and on top of that a nasty cold.  We have never been so sick and I am so ready to get past all of this.

**Ok, gross part over, it’s safe to read again!**

Let’s get back to the chicken, shall we!  As I mentioned earlier this homemade oven roasted rotisserie chicken is great for meal prepping and it can be used for so many other recipes.  I plan on sharing a few with you throughout this month so stay tuned.

About this homemade oven roasted rotisserie chicken:

  • This can also be made in the crockpot.  Just place the spice rubbed chicken into the crockpot and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.  The skin will not be crispy, just so you know, but the chicken meat is tender and juicy!
  • I have two roasting times and temps for you to choose from.  If you need it quicker roast the chicken at 400 degrees F for 80-90 minutes or at 300 degrees F for 3-3 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature is 165 degrees F.
  • This recipe is for a 5 pound bird and yes you can roast 2 birds at the same time and it really doesn’t take much longer!
  • To ensure maximum juiciness, baste the birds often during the roasting time.  I will admit I am not the best at remembering to do this and they still turn out delicious.
