The term Rotisserie often refers to the traditional French method of grilling chicken when the chicken is screwed in a large skewer and slowly swirl while the grill is cooking it evenly.
The idea behind this genius method of chicken grilling is that the chicken’s flesh stays moist because of the slow cooking which does not allow the protein to dry out and become stiff, instead it remains tender and juicy, on the other hand, the chicken’s skin become golden and crispy, yummy.
