Chicken on a Spit

About this recipe

No! Don’t spit on the chicken; put the chicken on a spit. You crazy Canadians don’t know anything.



Pat dry with paper towel, and salt and pepper inside and out.

In a bowl, use a fork to combine:

Rub this concoction all over the chicken until it starts to giggle. Then put your bird on a spit and tie both legs and wings.

Place metal or foil baking dish directly below to catch drippings (this also prevents flare-ups). Barbecue at medium heat until thermometer reads 180°F (approx. 1½-2 hours).
