"My favorite way to have chicken is rotisserie style and I absolutely love Swiss Chalet Chicken. I wanted to make this at home and played around with this recipe for quite a while before I was happy with it. This is as close as I can get to the Famous “Swiss Chalet” Rotisserie Style Chicken. The prep time for this recipe does not include to marinating time. Also, depending on the BBQ or rotisserie oven you are using, the cook time will vary. Cook the chicken until the juices run clear. If you cannot find the dehydrated tomato soup mix, the same amount of ketchup works well also. Serve this with my Swiss Chalet Dipping Sauce recipe for the full Swiss Chalet experience. #recipe425"

I can't find savoury, may I ask what it is? I did find a recipe to make savory seasoning, is that it? Please advise and thank you.

I'm glad I gave this a try! Both the chicken and the sauce were close enough to satisfy a urge for Canadian style Swiss Chalet or St. Hubert chicken--saves a 7-10 hour drive.

Made as written for the FYC Tag Game – I say “as written” because it’s largely true, but there were parts of the recipe that seemed open to interpretation & I opted to get creative. I do not have a rotisserie, so I marinated my whole chicken overnight & oven roasted it per your instructions. There was no mention of discarding the marinade & doing so seemed a shame to me, so I put it in the bottom of the roasting pan & let the lovely chicken drippings join it there. When the chicken was done, I removed it to a serving platter & covered it w/foil to rest & be rewarmed later. Then I added a mixture of bite-sized potatoes, carrot sections, cauliflower florets, quartered large mushrooms & onion wedges to the roasting pan & braised them in the liquid combo w/added roasted garlic. This was such a delicious way to serve potatoes & veggies w/your tasty chicken. In some ways, this recipe reminded me of your “Beer Braised Ribs” that we loved so much. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

Daily Inspiration

We really enjoyed this delicious chicken -- it turned out really moist. I marinated the chicken overnight to maximize the flavor of the marinade and it only took about an hour and 15 minutes to cook in the rotisserie, Will definitely make this chicken again. Nancy : )
