Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken

"Very tasty and easy! Because of the foil balls, the fat drains off the chicken as it cooks."

    This is our new go-to roasted chicken recipe! I also wrap potatoes in foil and put in the bottom of the slow cooker (no sense wasting good cooking space!).

    This is a wonderfully simple recipe to obtain a delicious and extremely tender chicken. I made as directed. However not having any olive oil cooking spray, I simply poured about 2-3 TBSP of extra virgin olive oil over my very large chicken and also sprinkled with the salt and pepper and also used a "Rustic Tuscan Seasoning" from Costco. I don't recall how many pounds this chicken was, but it filled the top to the brim of my Kitchenaid Crockpot. I allowed it to cook on high for the full 6 hours, then I lowered the temp to low and cooked an additional 2 hours. While the chicken was cooking, I simmered the giblets in water with onion, carrots and celery. When the chicken was done, I removed the chicken from the crockpot. Then in a separate container added 1/2 cup of flour to enough water to make a stir-able consistency. I then stirred this mixture into the crockpot, adding enough of my chicken broth from the giblets to make gravy. Then turned the crockpot up to high until thickened. This chicken is so tender, delicious and very flavorful! I served with mashed potatoes, corn and the best gravy anyone could ask for! Best of all, there are enough leftovers for a second meal : ) Thank you, CookinMamaof3!

    I used lemon pepper seasoning on my chicken. It came out delicious.

    This was super easy! I stuffed the inside of the bird with celery tops and a small onion halved. After I did the olive oil I used some old bay seasoning and pepper. I tried the potatoes in the foil, wouldn't do that again as they got really coated in chicken grease. I kinda overcooked it as my grandson was here so it was well ready before the rest of my dinner lol! All in all will make this my recipe for cooking a whole chicken. Thanks so much for posting this super recipe!

    I have been making your recipe for years, kept forgetting to review it. We love how juicy the chicken is & doesn't cook in the fat. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
