Rotisserie style baked chicken


Author: Aušra

My hubby and I both like baked chicken from our childhood – rubbed with salt, peppers and garlic. I tried a few recipes, but every time agreed that our favourite is still the same – the one from childhood. Until now! After we tried this recipe, we don’t want that traditional anymore. We baked chicken by this recipe maybe five times or more, but I just can’t make good photo of it. Sorry about that, but anyway I really think you should try it and think you will be it too.

This chicken has a mild lemon taste. It is a little bit spicy and hot, but it’s not so hot because my kids skill eat it 🙂 The seasoning mixture in here is just perfect for us.

Rotisserie style baked chicken

Time needed:
Yields: 4 servings
Calories: 323 kcal / 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 big chicken
  • 2 tbsps. butter, room temperature (I use a little bit more)
  • 1 lemon, cut in quarters
  • 1 onion, cut in quarters
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 1/2 tbsps. oil
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 2 tsps. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne

Directions:

  • Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Place onion, lemon and garlic inside the chicken cavity. Then close it with a wooden skewer.
  • With fingers make cavity between chicken skin and breast. Rub butter in there. This won’t let dry out the chicken breast.
  • In a bowl mix all the seasonings and pour oil. With this mixture rub all over chicken. Then put chicken in a cold place and let marinate. We like to marinate for night or even more.
  • Preheat oven to 230°C.
  • Put chicken in a baking dish breast side up. Bake about 1 hour, or while inner temperature reaches 80°C.
  • Take out from the oven and let rest for 10-20 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Chicken and zucchini pie

I can say that this is almost the same as Zucchini pie with tuna just tuna changed to chicken. Also I can say that I found out it only after a few times I baked this pie. Their taste are very different. They both are favourites in our family. Just now I bake with chicken more, because my kids don”t eat tuna, but pie with the chicken eats one of my kids.

Hearts and carrot stew

If the past time was a healthy recipe, now it’s the cheap one. After all, you need to have all kinds of options. I made this stew for three times because we couldn’t decided we like it or not. The second time I made it, carrots had too strong taste and we didn’t like it. So choose young, crisp and tasty carrots and everything will be fine. Our children do not eat this sort of misunderstandings , so me and my hubby enjoyed it for lunch. And the last time it was so delicious that we ate more than we should. 🙂

Almond chicken fingers

These chicken fingers are very good. A lot of spices are used in the recipe, but the combination is perfect. Only cayenne pepper you should add according to your taste. When I prepare this chicken to my children, I add only half of it, but in the original it is used twice as much. Fingers are prepared very quickly, and the most exciting thing that it doesn’t need time to marinate, and later you don’t have to stand near the pan. For your health – it’s only for the good. We ate this chicken already many times, sometimes just as fast food – with some sauce and pickles or oven ​​fried potatoes. This time we had it for dinner with some vegetable stew, ordinary enough, but still everything was good and we liked it.

Chicken and rice salads with curry

I decided to prepare something new for our already boring quick menu. This dish is very quick, if you do like me – boil chicken a day before. My hubby commended. I asked him maybe the dish is so good because almost all the week we ate what we had on hand? But he assured that no and ate almost everything, leaving just a few bites for my next day lunch… You can enjoy these salads and cold, and warm.

Smoked chicken breast and broccoli salads

When my mother on the weekend told me about the salads that she tasted at work, I was sceptical. And when she decided to prepare it for us, I was afraid (our taste is very different). But I’m glad that she did it, because we liked it a lot. It’s better to say that grown ups liked it, because my kids didn’t like onion and broccoli. Mayonnaise doesn’t make these salads healthy but for a quick dinner they were very good.
