rotisserie chicken in a crock pot

How is it possible to cook rotisserie chicken in a crock pot?

You see, normally when you cook chicken it a crock pot, it becomes "stewed" and it falls off the bone.  Which would be good if you want stewed chicken that falls off the bone.

Rotisserie chicken is normally cooked in a rotisserie, and has crispy skin.

So to cook "rotisserie" chicken in a crock pot, you have to do something a little different.

I prefer drumsticks, so I cooked 5 drumsticks.  But you can use this method with a whole chicken.

First you line the bottom of the crock pot with balls of aluminum foil, to keep the chicken elevated.  Or you can use onion quarters.

Then you season your chicken.  I used lemon pepper, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Then you coat the chicken with olive oil.

Keep the lid of the crock pot cracked open with a fork or spoon.  An oval shaped crock pot works best for this.

The recipe says to cook it on low for 8 hours, but I wanted it to cook faster, so I turned it up to high.

The skin was moderately crispy.  If you want the skin to be super crispy, you can finish it off in the oven.  

It smelled and tasted SO good!
