Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken

crockpot rotisserie chicken

I saw this idea on a friend’s Facebook page and just knew I had to give it a try! I was skeptical that this would turn out like a real rotisserie chicken, but it blew my expectations! The skin did not get crispy, but I was thinking, if you had one of these you could probably solve that problem! This meat fell off the bone and melted in our mouths!

This has seriously rocked my world! Knowing I can come home after a busy day with the kids to a rotisserie-style chicken AND baked potatoes makes my heart happy!!
Pin it for later!

Prep Time
5 min
  1. 1 whole chicken
  2. salt
  3. pepper
  4. 4-5 small sweet potatoes (or regular potatoes)
  5. olive or avocado oil
  1. Wash and dry the sweet potatoes, then rub with oil and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Wrap in aluminum foil and place on bottom of crock pot, enough to cover the bottom in a single layer.
  3. Sprinkle chicken generously with salt and pepper (and any other spices you may want--I went simple with this one).
  4. Place on top of wrapped potatoes.
  5. Cook on low 4-6 hours.
  6. This meat just falls apart, so instead of removing the whole chicken all at once, I just got a fork and started taking the meat off and setting it aside.
  7. Once done, carefully take out the potatoes, remove foil and eat!

    Possible aluminum toxicity with placing uncooked food on top of the foil? Does anyone know…I’m trying to be aluminum-free.

    So I tried this as prescribed, but it did not go according to plan. I thought it was a little funny to put the chicken on top instead of on the bottom, but, again, I tried it as prescribed.
    The chicken may have EVENTUALLY cooked had it stayed on top, but I when I checked it after 2.5 hours it was still RAW. Dinner needed to be ready within the next 3 hours, so I switched it and placed the chicken on the bottom, breast down, and moved the sweet potatoes to the top. This made more sense to me anyway; probably should have gone with that to begin with.

    I bought some chicken thighs I think it is. Didn’t want to mess with a whole chicken and the guts. Should I just cook for an hr or so less? Looks delish! Can’t wait to try tonight or this weekend!

    Is there a lot of liquid in the bottom of the pot? I do the same thing with carrots, celery and onion, all unwrapped. The chicken is delicious, falling off the bone tender. I purée the vegetables to make a sauce. There is a lot of liquid in his method. It can’t be all from the vegetables.


  1. […] Today is Monday, and Adam is back at work. The sun is shining, and temperatures are back up above freezing. That means that tonight, we’re definitely headed to the gym, and that I need to get something started in the slow cooker about… now, actually. (Geesh! Better finish this entry.) Tonight, we’re having Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken & Sweet Potatoes. […]
