Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken Recipe
Stop reaching for store-bought rotisserie chicken and make your own in the slow cooker! This easy recipe tastes so much better than store bought.
List of Ingredients:
- 4 lbs whole chicken (neck and giblets removed, 3-4 lbs)
- 1 tbsp light brown sugar (optional)
- 1/2 tbsp chili powder
- 1/2 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 lemon, juice
Make 4-5 aluminum balls and place in the bottom of the slow cooker to create a rack for the chicken in the slow cooker. You can also wrap 4-5 medium potatoes in the tinfoil and place those in the bottom of the slow cooker for an easy side dish.
Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Truss the chicken legs together for a better presentation and to hold the chicken together better. Mix together all of the spices with the lemon juice. Rub the spice rub all over the chicken.
Stuff the lemon into the chicken cavity and place the chicken on top of the aluminum foil balls or wrapped potatoes. Cover and cook for 4-5 hours on high (or 7-8 hours on low) until the juices run clear and chicken is cooked to 165 degrees. Exact cooking time will depend on the size of the chicken.
Optional for crispy skin: Preheat the broiler and cover a baking sheet with foil. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Broil until the skin is nice and crispy, be careful the skin doesn't burn.
