One of my favorite things to do on the grill is to cook up rotisserie chicken. There is just something about that slow roasted chicken while constantly turning on a spit. It is just more tender, juicier and more evenly browned. If I had it my way, I honestly wouldn’t even think about cooking it any other way because it’s just that good. While my rotisserie chicken is super good, it just got even better with Cole & Mason’s new line of spices, seasonings and herbs and there seriously took this thing to the next level.
Cole & Mason has been perfecting the art of grinding salt and pepper forever, and now they’ve come out with some incredible new seasonings, spices and herbs that will for sure help out your food in the flavor department. I used the Portuguese Rotisserie spice blend for my rotisserie chicken and it has the perfect balance of spice and salt.
Believe it or not I’m not a huge fan of spicy food, but I do like a little kick. To me food that wants to add that extra zip should be comfortably spicy, meaning I don’t need to drink a gallon of milk after each bite. This Cole & Mason Portuguese Rotisserie blend is loaded with flavor and most importantly it’s comfortably spicy. I also figured since they know all about spices, and it says rotisserie on the bottle then I of course would make a rotisserie chicken to compliment.
Making a Rotisserie Chicken:
If you don’t have the necessary equipment to make a rotisserie chicken, don’t worry because there are a few other cooking methods you can use. You can simply roast in the oven, or you can remove the back bone to make a flattened chicken and cook right on the grill.
The Portuguese Rotisserie spice blend can be used in a Cole & Mason spice grinder or you can keep it as is or mash it a bit in a mortar and pestle with oil to combine, which is what I did. I really just wanted to mash the ingredients together a little bit.
The next most important thing to do is to truss the chicken. This will help keep all the juices into the chicken as well as helping it to compress in size a bit so that I can put it on the spit and roast it up on the grill.
I always say it’s important to season once and taste twice. So, taste the spice blend first and make sure you love the flavors. You can absolutely take it a step further by adding in some chopped fresh garlic or shallot, or even sea salt if you have a salt obsession like I do. I just want to make sure you understand that you can add more if you want more.
Brush the Portuguese Rotisserie spices and oil all over and in the chicken and put it right on the spit and let it roast. I like to make rotisserie chickens when the grill is at around 500°, and from there it really only takes about an hour.
Patatas Bravas Sauce:
This recipe is a mash up between patatas bravas and a rotisserie chicken. Patatas Bravas are a traditional recipe from Spain involving fried potatoes, tomato sauce and an aioli. Let me just tell you the combo of the tomato sauce and aioli is so insanely delicious that I had to put it on this rotisserie chicken.
For this recipe you can use a homemade tomato sauce that you like, a simple marinara, or even some canned crushed tomatoes as is. The aioli is a simple combination of mayonnaise, fresh squeeze lemon juice, finely minced garlic, salt and pepper. I can promise you that this combination will be the best thing you’ve eaten in a long time!
