"This is our favorite rotisserie recipe. It's from the instruction booklet for an Oster Carousel Rotisserie. Cook chicken for 18 to 22 minutes per pound. I usually double the sauce......it's really good on rice too. Although I've never tried it this way, my guess is that it could be converted to an oven dish as well."
