This little baby is one of my crew's favorites! We love store made rotisserie chickens, but unless you can catch a good sale they can be a bit pricey. And we need to buy two of them to really have enough for our family. When I came across this rotisserie chicken recipe that I could make at home I was VERY excited.
When I make this I double the seasonings and cram two fryers into my large oval crock pot. I have also made this with chicken legs, which is also great!
This recipe is so easy, tastes great and is perfect for a busy day!
Here's what you need:
1 small chicken (I usually get a 4-6 pounder)
3 tsp of sea salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp of Italian seasoning -OR- 21 season salute from Trader Joe's
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp pepper
4 whole garlic cloves
1 yellow onion, quartered
Rinse and dry your chicken. Place in the crock pot.
In a sperate bowl, mix together all of the dry seasonings. Rub the dry mix on the inside and outside of your chicken.
Place the garlic and onion inside the chicken. Put the chicken breast side down in your crock pot. DO NOT add water.
Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8 hours.
I know that your first thought will probably be that you need to add liquid. I promise you do not need to do this. The chicken has enough juice and will not be dry, trust me!
