This is a very easy, but very tasty, rotisserie chicken recipe-all you need is three ingredients.  It is made with the rotisserie attachment for a Weber kettle grill.  The attachment is a great investment; you can cook all sorts of good stuff on it.

Ingredients:

1 chicken
2 lemons
2 jalapeño peppers
Lemon pepper (I do not make my own; you can pick up a good mix at most grocery stores.)

Directions:

  1. Soak your chicken in ice water for 30 minutes.File Jul 17, 7 52 19 PM
  2. Remove from the ice water. Rub it with the lemon pepper rub, including under the skin.  Put it back in the fridge for 2-24 hours.
  3. Cut the lemons into cubes, leaving as little rind on them as possible.
  4. Slice the jalapenos.
  5. Stuff the lemons and jalapenos inside the chicken. Push the jalapenos against the interior wall of the chicken cavity.
  6. Close the cavity with toothpicks, pinning the chicken’s skin down.
  7. Put the chicken on the rotisserie. Truss the limbs to the chicken’s body.  A lot of people do this with twine.  I find it easier to use toothpicks.
  8. Prepare your grill for high, indirect hear.
  9. Cook for 60-90 minutes. When it hits 160, pull it and let it rest for 10-15 minutes (it should finish cooking to 165 while it rests.)
