Are you ready to feel like a professional chef? Growing up my mom would cook an entire rotisserie chicken and it always looked (and tasted) amazing and extra professional. I always thought once you got to the level of cooking a full chicken, you were officially a chef. Well friends, I have some exciting news because this lemon thyme rotisserie chicken is SO easy and you will feel like a professional chef because it looks and tastes amazing!
The recipe for the rotisserie chicken is from Living Lou, I just added an extra 1/4 cup of white wine for more taste! I thought the chicken would taste plain but the blend of lemon, garlic, thyme, and white wine was SO tasty! My main tip would be to definitely cook it for 1.5 hours! Also, when you are buying the full chicken at the store, you can usually choose from a range of chickens (get the breakdown on chicken sizes here) but most stores will have “fryers” or “roasters”. I bought a fryer (pictured above) which is probably 6-8 serving, while a roaster is 10 or more servings because it is a lot bigger! If you make the chicken plus the roasted edamame and corn recipe below, the cook time is only 25 mins for a very fancy meal!
