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.
