Steve's Chook Shop Chicken

Rotisserie style chicken in the oven or BBQ. Add some smoke flavour for authentic taste. If you have an actual BBQ rotisserie, even better!

Instructions

Mix stuffing ingredients thoroughly by hand.

Stuff into chicken cavity. Truss chicken legs to help close cavity. Fold wings over and tie if needed.

Dry chicken with paper towel, generously rub with dry rub mixture.

Roast in fan forced oven or covered BBQ with breast down on wire rack over a pan for 30 minutes at 180C.

Turn chicken breast up (remove pan if using BBQ), and cook a further 30 minutes. Check thickest part of breast meat is at 75C with meat thermometer. Let rest for 10 mins before carving.

Deglaze pan and make gravy.
