One day I was complaining on Facebook about forgetting to once again defrost my meat then a friend shared this awesome secret with me–just stick your whole chicken (frozen or defrosted) in the crockpot and add salt. Let me tell you that secret has saved many of our family meals.
One of my favorite ways to make a whole chicken is in my slow cooker. It’s so easy to make and a lot cheaper than buying it at the store. Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken is so easy to throw together, and at dinner time you have a lovely, tender and juicy whole chicken to eat or use in another recipe. My favorite part about making a whole chicken is that there’s enough meat left for me to make another meal out of it.
Here’s another secret I’ve mine I always try to cook a whole chicken at the beginning of the week so I can use it for other meals during the week.
Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken
- whole chicken
- your favorite seasoning
- salt to taste
Place in your crockpot with breast up and add salt and seasoning. Cook 4-4.5 hours.
Note, I’ve read on other blogs to place foil balls underneath the chicken but I’ve never done it and my chicken turns out fine. Also, if I’m home before the chicken is done I add butter or oil over the chicken and it gives it a crispy look.
