What's the best way to balance a chicken on a rotisserie?

My wife and I were given a rotisserie oven for our wedding and it makes the best chicken; tender and juicy every time. The only problem I have is getting it balanced on the rod properly. With the wide openings front and back it inevitably will flop around a bit while cooking and I'm worried about burning out the motor.
Also, what's the best way short of sewing the back shut to keep garlic and other goodies inside the chicken? I tried tying it tightly, but the peristaltic motion from the chicken flooping around forced the cloves out the back. It looked like the chicken was crapping garlic.
