In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add onion; cook and stir until softened, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and bell pepper; cook and stir just until mushrooms begin to release their liquid, about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the Asian Spice Rub; set aside.
Gently rub the remaining spice rub under chicken's skin over the breast portion. Spoon about 2 1/2 cups of the mushroom mixture into the chicken's cavity. Spoon remaining mushroom mixture into an 8-inch baking pan; set aside.
Roast chicken in a lightly oiled roasting pan for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 300 degrees. Mix hoisin sauce and vinegar; brush over chicken.
