rotisserie crock pot chicken

fact: rotisserie crock pot chicken is fab.
fact: pulling the chicken off the bone is not fun if you feel bad for the chicken like i do.

this is the chicken whole- (obvi)

and then you pull it apart to make this fab-ness.

i make this all the time. it's great b/c it's easy to do and it makes many, many meals! one time i skinned the chicken before putting it in the crockpot. i would suggest NOT doing that as it makes no different and skinning it first is SO least i think so.

rotisserie crock pot chicken
source: a year of slow cooking

what you need.

-1 whole chicken, skinned (or not...whatevs) (4-5 pounds)
-2 tsp salt
-1 tsp paprika
-1 tsp onion powder
-1/2 tsp dried thyme
-1 tsp Italian seasoning
-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
-1/2 tsp black pepper
-pinch of chili pepper (probably not necessary)

-4 whole garlic cloves (optional)
-1 yellow onion, quartered (optional)

what you need to do.

skin the chicken and remove the other grossness from inside the bird. it takes a while and you will say eww at least 5 times. remember not to touch anything. cause its GROSS. (keep in mind you dont have to skin the chicken)

combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. rub mixture over the bird...inside and out. put bird into crockpot.

put onion and whole garlic cloves in the bird if you want. i did.


cook on low for 8 hours. (or high for 4-5 hours) longer you cook = more tender the meat.

ps. i cooked mine for like 9-10 hours. it fell apart when i took it out of the crockpot. delishhhhhhh!

make it. now. :)
