Slow Cooker Rotisserie-Style Chicken Recipe

You wouldn't believe this golden brown chicken was made in the slow cooker. Packed with flavor, the meat is moist, the carrots are tender and the juices would make a nice gravy.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"This was so tender and juicy! We had left over Chicken to shred and made chicken taco's. Yum!"

"This is a flavorless rub. It simply doesn't permeate the meat. Rotisserie chickens are brined in a salt water solution prior to cooking. I don't believe there is a way to avoid that step and still expect deeply flavorful results. This recipe just doesn't deliver. The delight of rotisserie chicken is you can taste the seasonings with every bite. Other recipes suggest removing the chicken skin entirely before slow cooking, and that might help somewhat"
