Make Costco Rotisserie Chicken at Home

We have a deep love of rotisserie chicken in our house. They are our go-to for easy dinners and all the cooked chicken in our casseroles. So, when my Mom gave me a recipe for a Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken, I knew I had to make it ASAP!OMG! Y’all this is ridiculously good and SUPER easy to make. I just rubbed some yummy spices all over the bird and plopped it in the slow cooker. Easy Peasy! This chicken was so tender and juicy and just as good, if not better, than a store-bought chicken!

How to Make Rotisserie Chicken in the Slow Cooker

As I said, this Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken is super easy to make. Remove the giblets from the chicken cavity. Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Combine flour, paprika, onion powder, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Rub chicken thoroughly with seasoning mixture, including inside the cavity. Place the chicken, breast side up, in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF.

  • You can rub the chicken with the spices the night before and put it in the slow cooker before you leave for work or school. Can’t get much easier than that!!
  • I like to pop the cooked chicken under the broiler for a bit to crisp up the skin. That is totally optional. If you aren’t eating the skin, then you can skip that step. Either way, this chicken is a winner, winner chicken dinner!
  • Need a gluten-free or low-carb/keto-friendly chicken? Simply omit the flour from the chicken rub.
  • You can freeze the cooked chicken meat for later. It is great in casseroles and soups.

  1. You can build a platform of sliced onions and carrots to sit the chicken on. YUM! Also, wouldn't Squeaky, Fluffy and dear old Jack like those innards? I love Meow Monday, esp. Jack. Thanks!

  2. I roll up 3 or 4 balls of foil to place in the bottom of the cooker. Place the chicken on the foil to keep it from resting in all the liquid. I use the juice to serve over the chicken or to moisten it before freezing.

  3. Good Morning, Would you want to rub the cavity with seasoning and then truss the chicken up? Recipe sounds great and convenient.
