Crockpot BBQ Rotisserie Chicken



So, I actually had a different recipe scheduled to post today, but I changed it because I couldn't wait to share this one with you! I really love the idea of cooking a whole roaster chicken in the Crockpot - the slow cooked flavor is just out of this world and so moist! Most of the (few) whole chickens I've roasted in the oven have been so dry. You never have to worry about that in the Crockpot!

The alternative of course would be to just buy a rotisserie chicken ready at the supermarket, but it's more expensive for less than half of the meat. I made this last week and we still have about 3 cups of shredded chicken left over. And you will never get this flavor ready-made!

This is definitely a milder BBQ taste, not the same as typical BBQ chicken, but absolutely amazing! Probably one of the best roaster chickens I've ever had. I had warmed some extra sauce to serve with the chicken, but then I tasted it and realized it wasn't necessary. You have got to try this one!


Crockpot BBQ Rotisserie Chicken

3-5 lb whole roaster chicken (depending on the size and shape of your crockpot)
2 lemons
1/2 cup prepared BBQ sauce
2 whole cloves garlic, peeled
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Remove anything from inside the chicken and discard. Place chicken in Crockpot, breast side up. In a small bowl, juice two lemons and place 2 used lemon halves in cavity of chicken along with the whole garlic cloves. Rub the other 2 used lemon halves all over chicken and then discard. To the lemon juice, stir in BBQ sauce and Italian seasoning. Pour BBQ sauce mixture over chicken. Cover and cook on high 4 hours (if your chicken is smaller, check after 3 hours - or buy one with a nifty pop-up thingy). Remove chicken from Crockpot and place on a serving plate to rest 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with additional warmed BBQ sauce if desired.



Just look at that juice! Be prepared for lots of leftover chicken to use and freeze for later. Yay!

  15. I don't have an oval crock pot.for the crock pot chicken. Do you suppose one of the old time taller round ones will work?

  16. It probably would, I would just buy one on the smaller side.
