Rotisserie Iraqi Chicken
This recipe is one of the most popular recipes on my website. Chicken with garlic, ginger paste, tomatoes paste with dill and cilantro. It is easy to prepare less than 15 minutes and it cooks about an hour and 30 minutes in 400-degree Fahrenheit oven it depends on the size of the chicken. I serve the chicken with basmati rice, yogurt and salad.
