Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken?

nuraman00 | Mar 23, 2012 09:33 PM

I've tried to make a rotisserie style chicken in the crock pot a few times.

I want it to taste like the rotisserie chicken you get at fast food joints (like Boston Market), or grocery stores, or Costco.

I had even tried looking at the ingredients for the ones at grocery stores or Costco, but they weren't very specific.

1. The first recipe I tried was this:


It was ok. The flavor didn't taste like the rotisserie chicken I was hoping for. Also, the paprika flavor was too strong.

These were the ingredients:

--1 whole chicken, skinned (4-5 pounds)
--2 tsp kosher salt (if you'd like it as salty as the ones in the store, add another 1 tsp.)
--1 tsp paprika
--1 tsp onion powder
--1/2 tsp dried thyme
--1 tsp Italian seasoning
--1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
--1/2 tsp black pepper
--pinch of chili pepper (probably not necessary)

--4 whole garlic cloves (optional)
--1 yellow onion, quartered (optional)

I had made her lemon rosemary chicken in the crockpot successfully, so it was disappointing that this one wasn't as good.

2. For my 2nd attempt, I looked through about 20-25 recipes online, before settling on one.


This one mentioned using smoked paprika. So I bought a special jar of smoked paprika.

This one smelled even better when it was cooking. But somehow, the flavor turned out light. And again, I think the paprika ruined it. I'm beginning to think I don't like paprika on chicken.

These were the ingredients:

2 t. salt
2 t. smoked paprika
1 t. onion salt
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. dried rosemary
1/2 t. dried thyme
1 T. sugar
1/8 t. pepper
1/8 t. cayenne pepper

Does anyone have a different recipe, and can they confirm if it really tastes like those other rotisserie chickens, or is it just a good crockpot chicken recipe (while having a different taste)?

And does anyone have pictures of the finished product?

I realize it might not look like the other rotisserie chickens, but I think it's possible to have the same flavor, right?
