Rotisserie Chicken: Easy in 5 Worldly Ways (Mexican, Asian, American, Italian, and Indian)

One of the quickest and healthiest ways to grab dinner on the go, and use it in a versatile way is our famous rotisserie chicken, right?  Well, yes..but if you are like me, I like to know where my chickens came from, because I eat organic chicken if I can help it.

I recently bought an oven with a rotisserie feature and I can’t stop using it.  I can fit two cornish hens on it or one roaster chicken and I use a simple blend of smoked hot paprika, salt & pepper and olive oil and massage it in..and PRESTO, it’s done.  It creates a savory, spicy bark on the outside of the chicken that I just don’t get with a store-bought rotisserie chicken.  In the high pressure oven, like the one I have, it is done in an hour.

Once you either make it yourself or buy it, do you just put it in front of your family and eat it?  Well, yes, you sure can…but let’s get a little creative with some simple recipes!  There are a handful of simple ingredients that are easy to find, so you can keep them in your pantry or refrigerator and be ready to serve some of these worldly meals…let’s integrate a little culture in our kitchens!
