Rotisserie Chicken

I am a big fan of rotisserie chicken. They are less than $7 a bird, and come pre-cooked and are always good, although they can be a little on the salty side. I got to thinking, if I could make my own rotisserie chicken I could control the salt, But alas, I was without a rotisserie.

So, I decided to work with what I had, and Googled Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken. I hit a gold mine of recipes, like this one, from The Happy Housewife!

This chicken had the look I was going for. I love this recipe because it features how to make broth from the leftover bones, and juices. I also love this because it has the cost breakdown of a whole meal, a lot cheaper than a pre-cooked bird from the store.

I also found this recipe from Food.Com.
This chicken is cooked on top of foil wrapped potatoes, so it keeps the chicken out of the liquid. It allows the fat to run off, so the skin gets crispier.

Now that I know that cooking Rotisserie Chicken is possible at home, I don't think I will be picking them up anymore. After all, it would take more time to go to the store than it would to make this chicken at home.

Happy Cooking!
