Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken

December 4, 2012 by 16 Comments

I love home cooked meals that you can throw into the crockpot and the flavors become all savory!  Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken is totally that type of a meal.   And not only is the chicken tender and delicious for dinner, I get to enjoy the aroma all day long as it slow cooks in my kitchen.

Here’s the ingredient list.

Big B is always in the kitchen ready to help….this time he got an extra kick out of it…being able to make Little B squeal and run was pure, genuine fun.

I always rinse my chicken before proceeding any further.  Then I combine my dry ingredients and rub them into the chicken, inside – out.  Fill the opening with quartered onions and minced garlic.  Then place the chicken in the crockpot breast down.  And there it is all gold and beautiful…4-5 hours later..

I usually reserve a cup of chicken stock from my Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken and combine it with 2-3 chicken breasts to prepare flavorful shredded chicken in the crockpot.
