Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken for #CrockPot Challenge Day 5

And here we are at the end of the week with the last dish. And this one was worth the wait. If you love the fall off the bone taste of rotisserie chicken then you are going to want to give this one a try. It was a miracle I was able to take this out of the crockpot and onto a plate whole so I could photograph it because this melted off the bones like butter. I found this recipe from LaaLoosh and she is right, this is better then what you can get from the store. Once I removed the chicken from the crockpot I thickened the juices to make a gravy but to be honest the chicken doesn’t need it so it might be better to just save this amazing broth for a soup later on.

Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken

1 whole chicken
118mL (1/2 c.) reduced sodium chicken broth
1 Tbsp paprika
1 Tbsp thyme
1 Tbsp garlic powder
2 bay leaves
Salt & pepper to taste


Preheat grill. (Broiler) In a small bowl, combine paprika, thyme, garlic powder, and salt & pepper. (This time I did use 2 large cloves of garlic crushed and while you can do this as well it does make it harder to get evenly over the chicken.) Rub chicken all over with seasoning, and place in a shallow baking dish. Place chicken under broiler for about 10 minutes or until skin begins to darken and crisp.

Remove from oven and transfer to crock pot. Add in broth and bay leaves, and cover with lid. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high four about 4-5 hours.

Don’t worry about getting the carving knife out for this baby you will just need a butter knife.

  1. Can you believe I made my very first “Whole” chicken just a few months ago, something about handling a whole chicken that makes me squirm, you make me really want to get over this “fear” :) Looks good!! Thanks so much for joining in on the Challenge, it was so fun, hopefully you’ll join me next time and luckily we have #SS to keep in touch! I look forward to featuring you in December!

    What a fantatic idea to cook a whole chicken in the crock pot. I love rotisserie Chicken. The skin has browned so nicely and it looks so flavorful! Great job Laura!

    I made this on Saturday night and it was delicious! It rivaled the ones i normally buy at Whole Foods! Thanks for this recipe Laura, it was great! Putting the chicken under the broiler before putting it in the crock pot makes a huge difference!

  4. Just found this recipe from a ‘related posts’ link on another post. This recipe just blew my mind. Leaving a chicken in a crock pot all day to “rotis” is so much more calming on the mind than leaving our (really old) open air rotisserie home alone. I am stoked to try this!
