  1. Season the inside of the chicken with a pinch of salt. Place the chicken onto a rotisserie set up on a barbecue or in a rotisserie oven. Set the heat to high. Cook for 10 minutes.
  2. During that time, quickly mix together the butter, 1 tablespoon of salt, paprika and pepper. Turn the barbecue/rotisserie oven down to medium and baste the chicken with the butter mixture. Close the lid/oven and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally, until the internal temperature reaches 83 degrees C when taken in the thigh with a meat thermometer.
  3. Remove from the rotisserie and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting into pieces and serving.
