Delicious Crock Pot (Whole) Rotisserie Chicken

I know it’s almost Thanksgiving (and I have yet to do some kind of Thanksgiving post, shame on me!) however, lately at my local grocery stores, uncooked whole chickens have been on sale. I think those little chickens get overlooked in November (wink, wink!) so I thought I would make a post featuring some seriously delicious crock pot goodness. This is a recipe my family loves and it is so so SO easy!!!

Not sure if you can tell by the picture above just how juicy this chicken is, but it’s fall-off-the-bone tender and ridiculously juicy. Here’s what you need to throw together in the crock pot:

Recipe adapted from Allrecipes

  • 1 (5-lb) whole uncooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire
  • 2 tsp. balsalmic vinegar
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Rinse off the chicken and empty the inner cavity. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. Peel back (or remove) the skin over the breasts. Place inside the crock pot.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the chicken broth, soy sauce, olive oil, honey, Worcestershire sauce, balsalmic vinegar, lemon juice and garlic. Pour mixture over chicken and cover.
  3. Cook chicken on LOW for 8 hours or HIGH for 4 hours. (I check back every so often and baste with the juices, too!)

When the chicken is finished, you can shred or cut up the meat – it’s super tender. My family likes it served with jasmine rice and broccoli but can go with any side dishes! Yummm! Also, any leftovers freeze great!

    I’ve Heard of putting aluminum foil balls in the bottom of the crockpot under the chicken – what’s your thoughts on that? I’ve never done a whole chicken in the crockpot but want to try soon. Thanks!
