Kitchen Tip: Rotisserie Style Chicken in the Crockpot!
I love crockpot cooking. If I can get dinner prepare while the kids are napping it just makes my day go by so much smoother! I also love meals that you cook once and can eat off of twice! Here is a great tip to make rotisserie style chicken in your crockpot. Put foil balls in the bottom. This will keep the chicken from sitting in the juices. I did this last night for dinner and it turned out perfect! I rolled up 4 foil balls and place them in the bottom. I removed the chicken guts (yuck!!), washed it out, rubbed it with olive oil and placed it in on top of the foil balls. I used a lemon pepper seasoning mix and sprinkled that on the bird. I had some fresh rosemary so I stuck that in too! I cooked it on high for about 6 hours and voila! It smelled wonderful and tasted great! Now I have enough shredded chicken for a few meals.
What are some of your favorite shredded chicken recipes?!
If you don’t want to use foil, you can just turn a small saucer upside down and put the chicken on top.
I’m going to try this!
Just to verify, no liquid, just the chicken and spices? So the chicken provides enough of it’s own juices I guess, Thanks, we will have to try this.
Yep, there is not need to add any liquid! Sometimes I rub oil or a little butter, but it will be nice and juicy all on it’s own!
I was wondering if you can stuff the chicken as well? This sounds so delicious and I love to make my own stuffing when we have a roasted chicken or turkey.
I’m sorry, I don’t have much experience when it comes to stuffing! If you give it a try let me know how it works!
In all honestly I kick myself in the butt!! I started doing Crockpot meals about a year ago. I wasted so many hrs over the years not knowing how to cook in one. My mom wasnt much a crock pot cooker. Everyday after school it was ready when we got home. However times have changed alot with having two incomes to support a family. So our afternoons went from being so dang crazy with homework, reading, sports, dinner to a smooth sailing afternoon. 3 days a week I cook two meals at once because I have the 3 pot cooker. Then one day a week we either to do a easy sandwich and soup night or left overs. I swear by Crockpots these days. The kids also love the creations. It turns a plan jane meal in to really just about anything.
