Happy Rotisserie Chicken Day!

Rotisserie Chicken

One of our specialties is our flavorful and slowly roasted Rotisserie Chicken. It so happens that tomorrow is Rotisserie Chicken Day, so we thought it was a great opportunity to share more on our Wood-Fired Rotisserie Chicken and the dishes we create with it. If you are a fan of chicken, you’ll want to make a reservation at any of our restaurants (Copper Canyon Grill, Stanford Grill, or Stanford Kitchen) to try it. We serve it with mashed potatoes and green beans. Already tried it? Keep reading to discover the other dishes that use our famous Rotisserie Chicken as one of its ingredients.

Rotisserie Chicken Salad

  1. Keep it light and fresh with our Rotisserie Chicken Salad. A combination of mixed greens, jicama, black beans, avocado, tomato, corn, tortilla strips, Monterey Jack cheese, Chipotle-bleu dressing, and BBQ sauce.
  2. Find comfort with our Chicken Pot Pie. A warm and flaky crust made in-house filled with rotisserie chicken, peas, carrots, and onions.
  3. If pasta is more of your tune, join us for our Rattlesnake Pasta (available at Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill). We take our fresh rotisserie chicken and mix it with garlic, mixed bell peppers, mushrooms, and lime juice. Then, we toss it with linguine pasta and in a Cajun Alfredo sauce.

Fabulous Beer Pairings

Nothing better than an ice cold beer with your favorite food, but a bad pairing of the two can ruin the moment. Our wait staff get asked what beers pair best with our menu items quite often so we decided to put together a little cheat sheet for you all!

When it comes to cheeses, sandwiches, or pizza, our rule of thumb is that beer is one of the best beverage match for all of the above. Almost any beer can be paired with almost any dish, whether it’s a cheese platter, pizza, sandwich. We think our Cloak and Dagger Sandwich with sharp cheddar cheese and a crisp Pilsner make a fabulous pair. However, we recommend the stronger the cheese or flavor, the darker you go with your beer.

When it comes to light dishes like chicken, seafood, pasta we recommend you go as light in flavor and color as possible. A light German lager or Belgian Saison with fish or our famous Rotisserie Chicken is perfect. Again, if creams or sauces are added you need a heavy, richer beer. Pasta is slightly more versatile but still pairs well with similar brews like blonde ales and German or American wheat ales.

When feasting on red meats like burgers or steak, it’s best to find a beer that complements the bold, rich flavors. A nice, dark beer pairs well with our Canyon Prime Rib.
