Random Recipe: Rotisseried Chicken

Since both my husband and I work full time, I try to cut down on the amount of time I spend cooking during the work week.

One of the things that saves me time and energy when cooking for the week are whole chickens. I used to be rather afraid to cook whole chickens – I used only buy butchered parts – but damn I love whole chickens now!

When I cook whole chickens, I either bake or rotisserie them. My favorite is definitely the Rotisserie. It’s super fast and easy! I received my rotisserie as a gift but you can buy one for about $80 and up.

I cook a lot. I’m not very good at deep frying but I pan fry, saute, and bake (both food and desserts). I don’t have a gourmet kitchen (heck, I don’t even have (my preference) a gas stove!

When I started focusing on being healthy (mind, body), I began to cook more food from scratch. Because this is a pretty big part of my life, I decided to throw in recipes or whatever…whenever.
