Juicy Homemade Rotisserie Chicken

Smoked Paprika Roast Chicken

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. smoked paprika

2 Tbsp. melted unsalted butter

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 1/2 tsps. salt

1/2 tsps. pepper

1 whole 4-5 lb roasting chicken

4 Tbsp. honey

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Rinse and pat dry the chicken: Rinse the chicken off with cold water. Pat dry thoroughly with paper towels (otherwise the paste won’t stick).

3. Spread paprika butter mix over chicken: Combine together the paprika, melted butter, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Spread over the entire surface of the chicken and place the chicken in a 9×13 shallow baking dish.

4. Heat the honey and lemon juice in a small pot and set aside. Bake: Bake at 325°F for approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. Baste with the lemon-honey mixture after thirty five minutes, and then every fifteen minutes after that. You may need to adjust total cooking time depending on how big your chicken is.

5. The bird is done when the juices run clear (not pink) when a knife tip is inserted into both the chicken breast and thigh, about 165°F. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
