Rinse chicken and pat dry inside and out with paper towels and place on a cutting board. Prepare Basic Brine, according to instructions on page TK. Be sure to rinse the chicken well after brining and pat dry. Add the Lemon Dijon Herb Marinade to a 1-gallon re-sealable bag. Place the chicken in the bag with the marinade and be sure that the marinade fully coats the chicken. Place the sealed bag with the marinating chicken in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours. After the time as elapsed, remove the chicken from the bag and truss the chicken well with butcher’s twine. Place the dressed and trussed chicken on the provided chicken tower fitted in the drip tray. Place in the Cuisinart® Vertical Rotisserie and set the temperature to 400°F. Set the timer to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Check the temperature after one hour - the internal temperature should register at 160°F for the light meat and 170°F for the dark meat. Let chicken rest for 15 minutes; carve and serve. Lemon Dijon Herb Marinade In the bowl of a Cuisinart® Mini Chopper add the garlic, herbs and zest.
