So good and moist--just like a store bought rotisserie chicken, but even more moist and less fat!

  • Servings: 6
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes (to skin the chicken)
  • Cook Time: 4-8 hours
  • Total Time: 4.5 to 8.5 hours


1 Whole Chicken, skinned (4-5 pounds
2 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Onion Powder
½ tsp Dried Thyme
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
½ tsp Black Pepper
Pinch of Chili Pepper
4 Whole Garlic Cloves, optional
1 Yellow Onion, quartered (optional


Skin the chicken and get rid of the neck and other stuff from the cavity.

In a bowl, combine all of dried spices. Rub the spice mixture all over the bird, inside and out. Plop the bird breast-side down into the slow cooker.

If desired, shove 4 whole garlic cloves and a quartered onion inside the bird.

Do not add water.

Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 8. The meat is done when it is fully cooked and has reached desired tenderness. The longer you cook it, the more tender the meat.
