For that amazing, melt in your mouth flavor of store bought rotisserie chicken, rub this mixture over your bird the night before. Wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours before roasting.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes


    • 1 3 to 4 pound chicken
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons paprika
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp thyme-ground to a powder
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper


Mix all herbs and spices in a mortar and pestle (use a plastic bag and rolling pin as a substitute).

Rub mixture on all sides of chicken, being sure to use all and getting it into every surface of the meat.
