I have a crock pot recipe again today! Sorry my Crock Pot Tuesdays haven’t been as frequent as I had originally planned, but I have one today!
When I saw this super-simple rotisserie style chicken recipe for the crock pot I knew I wanted to try it! All you have to do is:
- Rinse and pat dry a whole chicken.
- Rub chicken with a seasoning salt (I used a combination of Creole seasoning and my own seasoning mix).
- Wrap the entire chicken in aluminum foil and place in your slow cooker
- Cook on high 5 hours until temperature reaches 175-180 Fahrenheit.
– I didn’t think it tasted exactly like the rotisserie chicken you get in the stores, especially the skin. BUT minus the skin I thought the chicken was still good. Compared to my other chicken in the crock pot recipe
, this chicken was less wet and slimy, so it’s better in sandwiches. I think I’ll keep making this recipe for sandwiches.
I spent about $4 on the chicken (sometimes I can find them for even less if I hit a good sale) and it made 4-5 cups of chicken. That means about $1 a cup. A nice (preservative-free) alternative to sandwich meats. Plus this would freeze great and of course you could use it in all kinds of recipes!
Crock Pot Tip
– I’ve always heard NOT to open the lid during crock pot cooking. Because of the heat loss it adds more cooking time, but if I’m honest….I do this way to often.
