Cajun Rubbed Rotisserie Chicken

A dry rub is a great, versatile way to add flavor to your meat. It can consist of any combination of herbs and spices. In this recipe we made  a delicious dry Cajun-inspired rub. Dry rubs can actually be used to marinate meat as well! Simply coat the meat with the rub of your choice and let it marinate in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Or, it can sit on the counter for up to an hour to soak in the flavors of the rub.

Whether you choose a dry rub or marinade for your rotisserie chicken recipe, be sure to use your Ronco Rotisserie for perfect rotisserie chicken every time.img_1834
