Crockpot BBQ ROTISSERIE chicken

Crockpot BBQ ROTISSERIE chicken


  • 3-5 lb whole roaster chicken (depending on the size and shape of your crockpot)
  • 2 lemons
  • 1/2 cup prepared BBQ sauce
  • 2 whole cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (Raw Foodz)



Remove anything from inside the chicken and discard. Place chicken in Crockpot, breast side up. In a small bowl, juice two lemons and place 2 used lemon halves in cavity of chicken along with the whole garlic cloves. Rub the other 2 used lemon halves all over chicken and then discard. To the lemon juice, stir in BBQ sauce and Italian seasoning. Pour BBQ sauce mixture over chicken. Cover and cook on high 4 hours (if your chicken is smaller, check after 3 hours – or buy one with a nifty pop-up thingy). Remove chicken from Crockpot and place on a serving plate to rest 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with additional warmed BBQ sauce if desired.
