Servings 1 chicken


  • 1 whole chicken approximately 4 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  • Fire up your rotisserie. Because of the brown sugar in the seasoning I turned my temperature to medium-high.
  • Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Thread onto your rotisserie. I like to season my bird on the rotisserie, but you can do it off the rotisserie if you prefer.
  • Combine the brown sugar, paprika and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Rub the chicken with the oil. Then apply the seasoning mix. Get it everywhere.
  • Turn on the rotisserie and let the chicken cook for approximately 1 hour 45 minutes or until the temperature reaches 165 F as measured in several places.
  • Let rest 15 minutes before serving.
