Crock Pot "Rotisserie" Chicken

It doesn't get any easier than this!

You know those yummy Rotisserie Chickens from the grocery store deli? Tender, juicy, and flavorful they are, but I always wonder what kind of preservatives lurk in all those juices. I've been seeing these around the web and have been making them for a little while now in my crock pot. Such a simple way to get such a moist roasted chicken! I love to have it on hand because of it's versatility...and because seemingly the children's love languages include quesadillas fairly often lately. ha

5 lb. chicken
Olive oil
Seasoning of your choice
I used the Perfect Pinch Rotisserie seasoning.

Remove chicken from it's wrapping and rinse. Pat dry with a paper towel. Spray or rub with olive oil and sprinkle generously with seasoning. Place in crock pot. Spray crock pot with non stick spray and add about 8 ounces of water to the pot.

I don't like if the cooked chicken is in it's juices and I don't have a rack for the bottom of the crock pot so I use these 3 little ramekins. Works like a charm!

Just set the chicken on top. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours. Turns out tender, juicy, and perfect every time.

  3. Awesome! I'm looking forward to trying this - thank you much!

  4. I really love the sound of this chicken and I especially love recipes that come together this easily. I'll be trying this really soon. I hope you have a great day.

  5. What a GREAT idea! I usually don't love crockpot chicken because, like you, I don't like how it "stews" in its juices. This is brilliant! I'm gonna try it next week.
