Rotisserie style baked chicken

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!

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.

Chicken and rice stew with chanterelles

At first glance it seems that it is simple pilaf with chicken. But lemon and hot chilli sauce gives spicy taste to the dish. I prepared it already two times: first – without mushrooms, because my hubby was at home, the second – with mushrooms, because I was all alone 🙂 Both times it was delicious. Don’t know about other kids, by mine don’t like spicy dishes, so I didn’t even asked to taste 🙂

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. 🙂

Chicken, marinated in a sweet chilli sauce

We love chicken, but it’s very hard to find good chicken marinade to bake it on the grill. And know I know that it’s not the fault of the recipes, it’s because we a lot of time overbake it. The last time we baked chicken on the grill I was walking around the grill and watched that no one overbaked it 🙂 I looked strange, but… what can we do if we want to taste food good 🙂

Chicken breast with curry and lemon peel

This dinner was very delicious and quick and it reminded me the spring when almost every meal was with a huge bowl of salads and a little bit meat for satiety. I baked chicken on electric grill and it was done in 10 minutes. It gave just enough time to chop my salads. I just love to have recipes that are appreciated by my family and at the same time are very quick.
