Tricia’s Slow Cooker Old Bay Rotisserie Chicken

by Tricia H on November 30, 2012

So many times I turn to the slow cooker for feeding my family. And often I try to put a new spin on a family favorite recipe just to make it stretch a little further for those hungry teens. Recently I paired two different slow cooker recipes. The result was delicious!

My friend Phyllis, at Household Ways, inspired my Slow Cooker Old Bay Chicken recipe. I made a new variation of that using a favorite rotisserie chicken recipe and Old Bay seasoning spices.  The rotisserie recipe calls for seasoning with seasoned salt. I simply substituted Old Bay seasoning and just a sprinkle of garlic salt.

You just can’t beat easy, frugal, delicious – and being able to feed a crowd! Plus, there just may be a few leftovers you can use another night.

I was going to bake a chicken on Sunday, but after I got your newsletter this evening…..guess what? I use Old Bay in my fried chicken and it’s delicious, so I can’t wait to try this.

Thanks for the recipe!

May I pin this?


Heather N. December 1, 2012 at 12:24 am

Never mind I found the button!! That’s what I get for trying to pin at midnight! Lol!

What are foil balls?
Or am I misunderstanding?


Tricia December 2, 2012 at 6:59 am

Hi Debbie – I should have explained that a little better. You just take a piece of foil and form it into a ball. Make enough so that the chicken doesn’t sit on the bottom of the slow cooker.

Covering potatoes in foil and putting in the bottom of the slow cooker works great too! and then you have baked potatoes AND rotisserie chicken. :-)

Now that is absolutely awesome Monique!! Trying that next time. Thanks so much for the suggestion.

Made this for dinner one night this week and it was awesome!! It was my first time cooking a whole chicken in the slow cooker and it was so easy and tasty. The meat was delicious. I also used potatoes wrapped in foil in the bottom instead of just plain aluminum foil and they were cooked perfectly. This will be a staple recipe in our house! Thanks!

Do you need to put any water in the slow cooker?


Tricia March 27, 2013 at 6:56 am

Not at all Jaennette!
