    I made this, it was delicious, I added a dash of garlic salt to it. It did turn out a quite watery, I was looking for more of a casserole type of texture. I think next time I'll add a dash of xanthan gum or glucomannan with the saucy ingredients to thicken it up a bit while baking.

    Charlie, it's a whole chicken that's cooked on a rotating rotisserie spit. They usually aren't very large. Not sure where you live, but most supermarkets in the US carry them in the deli section.
