Crock pot rotisserie chicken

March 23, 2016

Up until last Saturday, I was a chicken in the crock pot virgin 😉 Yup that’s right, I had never cooked a whole chicken in the crock pot, and even more so I had never cooked a whole chicken! Don’t get me wrong, I love chicken, and eat it a lot, but I always just cook up chicken breast.. Well recently the whole chickens went on sale at my local grocery store… so I put all my fears behind me and stuck one of those babies (ok chickens) in my cart! Boy am I glad I did… Let me tell you this could not of been any easier and certainly could not of tasted any better! Even though there is not much to it and probably a thousand recipes online already for crock pot chicken I thought I just have to add this to my blog, so my followers can see how simple it is 🙂

Crock pot rotisserie chicken
Author: 
Recipe type: Main meals
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
 
3oz rotisserie chicken is 1sp or 3pp (on SP Freestyle, as long as the chicken is skinless it is 0SP)
Ingredients
  • 1 whole chicken, about 5lbs (I bough the one with the neck and giblets removed)
  • ½ Tbsp cajun
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Dash of salt & pepper
Instructions
  1. Plug in your crock pot, I found cooking on high worked well but you can cook on low too.
  2. Place 4 foil balls on the bottom of your crock pot, this will prevent the chicken from cooking in its own juices.
  3. Mix all your seasonings in a bowl.
  4. Rinse your thawed chicken under cold water.
  5. Sprinkle your seasonings all over the chicken, getting everywhere you can cover. You can change up your seasonings to please, there really is no right from wrong when it comes to seasoning it. Also you can make it more of a rub style by adding a bit of water to your mix.
  6. Place chicken in crock pot so it is resting on the foil balls, cook on high for 4-4.5 hours or low 7-8 hours. Chicken should reach a minimum temperature of 175F (you can check with a meat thermometer) Remove chicken, slice and serve.
  7. SP Freestyle- 0SP is skin removed
  8. Smart points- 1sp for 3oz
  9. Points plus is 1pp per oz
