I love rotisserie chickens they are the perfect meal and you can do almost anything with the leftovers.... add it to pasta, rice, make chicken salad, add to soups etc. So over the weekend I attempted to make my own rotisserie chicken without all the added sodium that you get from the store bought ones and it turned out great!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Wash chicken, pat dry and remove insides.
Roll a lemon back and forth on the counter until the lemon becomes softened. Pierce with a fork numerous times.
Place lemon, 3-4 garlic cloves and fresh thyme inside the chicken cavity.
Rub olive oil over the outside skin and season with salt and pepper.
Place chicken on a roasting pan and cook approximately 1 hour and 30 mins, until chicken reaches 180 degrees.
