Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken


I use rotisserie chicken all the time in lots of my recipes. I think they are a great time saver and they taste great. I decided to try my hand at making my own. I only have a crock pot so that's what I used because I figured it would cook low and slow and infuse the chicken with flavor. You HAVE to try this! I cooked my chicken on "high" about 8 hours because I think my crock pot doesn't get all that hot so you'd need to adjust yours....but MAN...this was good! The chicken literally fell apart as I was taking it out of the crock pot so the picture of the whole chicken isn't that great...but it sure tasted great!! So easy and flavorful!!!

Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken



1 whole roasting chicken ~ about 2 - 3 pounds
Spice rub (recipe follows)
1 large onion
1/2 cup chicken stock

Rub chicken with spice rub making sure you get in all the nooks and crannies.

Slice onion and place in the bottom of your crock pot.

Pour in the chicken stock.

Place chicken on top of sliced onions.

Cook for about 8 hours (I cooked mine on high) until chicken is done and juices run clear.

You can make a yummy gravy with the juice from the cooked chicken!!



Spice Rub: 

2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper



Here's the spice rub stuff.



Combine it all....



Here's the chicken stuff.



Rub the spice all over the chicken.



Slice the onion and put it in the crock pot along with the chicken stock.



Place the spice rubbed chicken on top of the onion.



This was half through the cooking process.



All done! Fall off the bone tender!



Make a gravy with the juices for extra yumminess!!
