One of my favorite dinners. EVER.

There's just something about a perfectly roasted chicken that makes me proud! Buying a rotisserie chicken from the local grocery store is cool if you're in a hurry and have kids to feed, but making it your self gives you a sense of pride! I always feel like Super Mom when I pull that whole perfect chicken out of the oven. The smell is always fantastic and I know we're about to have an amazing dinner! If you're intimidated - don't be. I'm about to tell you exactly what to do to achieve a perfect Rotisserie Chicken right out of your oven! 
1 whole 4-5lb. chicken (mine was 4.85lb)
McCormick Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning
1 onion, roughly chopped
2 C. chicken broth
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper

1. Take out the insides of the chicken and discard. Rinse the chicken (inside & out) and pat dry with a kitchen towel.
2. Rub olive oil over the whole bird and sprinkle salt, pepper and rotisserie seasoning on the entire outside.
3. Sprinkle rotisserie seasoning around on the inside and stuff bird with the large pieces of onion (until it's stuffed full).
4. Pour chicken broth in bottom of roasting pan and place remaining onion (if you have left-over onion that didn't fit into the bird) at the bottom of the roasting pan.
5. Bake uncovered at 350° for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
6. After timer goes off, take chicken out of oven and cover tightly with foil for 10 minutes.

:If you don't have chicken broth you can pour 2 cups of water in the bottom of the roasting pan and add 2 chicken bouillon cubes.
:Sometimes I rub butter underneath the skin which obviously adds more flavor.
