There are times when a store-bought rotisserie chicken just make my life easier, especially with the school craziness, homework-laden, activity-driven days of now. Or even the lazy days of Summer when I have zero inclination to make anything in the heat of the Texas Summer. Let’s just be honest here, whatever grocery store thought up of offering ready-made rotisserie chickens lightened the dinner load for families all over.
The only thing that bothers me about those chicken is the sodium. Anyone know how much sodium those birds have? I don’t know the answer to that but I am sure it can’t be good. Also, you actually have to go to the store and GET the rotisserie chicken. Ugh.
So, I decided to make my own. In a crock pot, my favorite kitchen appliance of all times.
It was so ridiculously easy that my days of buying a store bought chicken are numbered….small-numbered.
Words of Note:
*You have to make a few tin foil balls and place them in the bottom of your slow cooker. Your chicken will sit ON TOP on the tin foil. Doing this will allow the hot air to circulate around the chicken and cook that baby! It looks like this:
*Place chicken breast side up and make sure to season it generously (more than it looks in this picture!)
*My favorite things to do with rotisserie chicken is to shred it and make BBQ sandwiches, enchiladas, king ranch casserole or quesadillas with it. Or, you can check out this post for lots of great ideas of what to do with this kind of chicken!
