Turn Your Crock Pot Into a Smokehouse Chicken (Smoked Chicken)

READY IN: 10hrs 10mins
Recipe by ThatBobbieGirl

Since so many people have said this is bland: This is more of a cooking method than a full RECIPE. Season the chicken as desired, use barbecue or soy sauce or what have you. The idea is that you can get "SMOKED CHICKEN" flavor with just your crockpot. If it turns out BLAND, then I guess you should have used some more seasoning.

Three words sum up this recipe: TO-DIE-FOR!!!! So good!!! I sprayed the crockpot with cooking spray, put 1 1/2 large onions, sliced, on bottom of the crock, then added the chicken that I had coated well with kosher salt,coarsely ground pepper and McCormick's 'Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning'. (Rubbed some of the salt & pepper under the skin of the breast and also sprinkled inside the cavity). Used about 1 or 2 T. Worcestershire Sauce 1/4 c. hickory flavored liquid smoke, 1/4 c. water and then squeezed 1/2 a lemon over top and then stuffed it into the cavity. Cooked on LOW for 12 hours. YUM-O!!! Thanks for this wonderful cooking technique ThatBobbieGirl!! It's a keeper. NOTE: This was not overly "smoky" or bland at all!


  1. Rinse chicken inside and out, and pat dry.
  2. Season as desired.
  3. Place in crock pot, breast side down.
  4. Pour liquid smoke over top or just add along the side, if desired.
  5. Cover and cook on low until done. Use the instruction book for your cooker to know how long to cook a chicken. Some crock pots cook faster than others, even on low.
