How To Make Easy Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken

No time to prep a roasted chicken? Problem solved with this “rotisserie” chicken made in a slow cooker. This recipe takes five minutes to prep!

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 4 hours
Total: 4 hours 5 minutes



  • 5lbswhole chicken,insides removed
  • 1tbspsmoked paprika
  • 2tspsalt
  • 1tspfreshly-ground black pepper
  • ½tspgarlic powder
  • ¼tsponion powder
  • aluminum foil or thickly-sliced onions or vegetables


  1. Rinse the chicken thoroughly and pat it dry with paper towels.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder until combined.  Rub the seasoning mix all over the chicken — on the outside skin, the inside cavity, and on the chicken breasts underneath the skin.

  3. Roll up a few small balls of aluminum foil, or thickly slice some onions, and/or vegetables. Place them on the bottom of the slow cooker bowl to absorb the juices that will accumulate in the bottom of the slow cooker.

  4. Place the chicken on top of the aluminum foil (or vegetables), pressing it down a bit if required for the lid to fit.  

  5. Cover and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours, or on High for 4 to 5 hours until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.

  6. Carefully remove the chicken from the slow cooker, discard the bones, and serve the chicken as desired.
