Have you ever made your own rotisserie chicken?  I can’t say I had until this week that is!  My husband and I recently bought a new grill and it came with a rotisserie attachment.  (Btw, if you are in the market for a new grill we LOVE LOVE LOVE ours!  We’ve used it just about every single day for the 3 weeks that we’ve had it.  It’s amazing!  You can check it out here.)  Making your own rotisserie chicken is so easy and the results are unbelievable.  You end up with fall off the bone, juicy, flavorful chicken that you can hardly stop eating.  My husband had a blast making this on the grill and devoured the chicken when it was done.  If you don’t have a grill that allows you to make a rotisserie chicken don’t despair - you can easily make this in your oven (see notes).



  • 1 whole organic air chilled chicken
  • herbs and spices of your choice (I used garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt and pepper)


  1. Using butcher’s twine tie up the legs and arms of the chicken.

    Tie the arms and legs with twine and season with your favorite herbs and spices

  2. Season the chicken with your favorite herbs and spices.  You really can’t go wrong here.  Add as much or as little as you’d like.  I literally threw on a few dashes and it ended up tasting great.

    Secure your chicken to the rotisserie stick and place on the grill

  3. Secure the chicken to your rotisserie stick and place on the grill.

    Make sure to follow the specific grilling methods for your grill. Here's my husband with his new toy - our Weber S-670.

  4. Follow the instructions for your specific grill for grilling times and method.  (We grilled our chicken for 2 hours and kept our grill temperature at 350 degrees.  We used indirect heat by turning on the left and right burners and leaving the middle ones off.)

    Your chicken is done when you have a golden brown crispy skin and an internal temperature of 180 degrees

  5. Your chicken is done when you have a crispy golden brown skin and the chicken has an inside temperature of 180 degrees.
  6. Carefully cut off the twine and enjoy your delicious chicken!

Nutritional Info:

Servings and nutritional info will vary depending on the size of your chicken.


To cook your chicken in the oven preheat your oven to 250 degrees.  Season with your favorite spices and place the chicken in a roasting pan. Bake uncovered for 5 hours or until you have a crispy golden brown skin and an internal temperature of 180 degrees.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.  Use your leftover chicken to make a delicious sandwich or eat it as is with a sprinkle of salt!
