Evy’s Cajun Kitchen
Every once in a while, I run across a recipe that I want to cook right away. I love to change recipes up and make them my own creation. I found this rotisserie recipe by accident when I was looking for a chicken faijta recipe. I made it and fell in love with it. After the second time I made it, I thought about the marinade and thought it might be good injected into the hen. It was a hit for my family. Some people like it that way, and some don’t. I can tell you this – the rotisserie chicken stands on it’s own two feet (no pun intended).
The fried corn is one of our favorite sides to serve with this meal. It just gives it a little lagniappe. For the non-Cajun readers, lagniappe is “something extra.”
Hope y’all enjoy this one.
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup melted butter
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Tabasco
1 can (14.5 oz.) low sodium chicken broth
1 cup white wine or beer (optional)
3-4 Tablespoons Cajun seasoning
Mix all ingredients and inject into chicken for grilling or baking. Be sure to rub bird down with olive oil (if not using butter) before cooking.
3-5 pound hen
salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika to taste
1/2 cup butter, melted
Inject marinade generously into all areas of the hen under the skin
Melt butter and add seasonings
Liberally spread butter mixture all over hen
Place seasoned hen on rotisserie and cook 1 1/2 – 2 hours, basting occasionally until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees in the thickest part of the hen.
Remove from rotisserie and let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.
6 ears sweet corn
4 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon bacon grease
4 slices uncooked bacon
sugar, salt and pepper to taste
Cut kernels into large bowl, then gently scrape knife against cob to drip milky liquid into bowl.
Melt butter and bacon grease over medium heat in large cast iron skillet. Add bacon – when bacon starts to cook, add corn. Simmer 8-10 minutes until tender, stirring frequently. If corn seems to start drying out, add small bit of hot water or milk to keep moist.
If corn isn’t sweet, add sugar. Add salt and pepper to taste.
