Pinterest Party & Link-up (vol 33): Slow Cooker Rotisserie-Style Chicken

Welcome to the RoL Pinterest Party. Join me as we link up and share how we made, cooked, baked, crafted, planned, organized, followed or created one of the pins on our Pinterest boards OR share something original that others can pin onto their boards.

Not on Pinterest? No problem. Link-up your own creation to inspire us so we can pin in to our own boards. It can be a recipe, sewing project, Catholic craft, homeschool project, organizing/ homemaking tip, themed birthday party, whatever you’d like.

Don’t have a post ready? The link-up will be open for a month so there’s still time. Plus, feel free to link up a new post or an older post that hasn’t had much traffic lately. šŸ™‚

PLEASE NOTE: Because we are entering the busy season of the holidays, I will be doing the Pinterest Party only once a month. It will be every first Tuesday of the month and the link up will be open for 30 days, so there is plenty of time to join the fun! šŸ™‚

With the busyness of the holidays, we can all use some quick dinner recipes. The first time I cooked a whole chicken in a crock pot I was a little apprehensive but I’ve learned to love it! I changed the ingredients a bit, but I got my inspiration from the recipe for CrockPot Rotisserie-Style Chicken from A Year of Slow Cooking.

(For the rub)

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Italian seasonings
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme

(For inside the bird)

  • 1-2 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 3-4 large garlic cloves
  • 1 lime, quartered (You could also use a lemon or an orange.)


Remove the insides of the chicken and the skin. (You can leave it on if you prefer. Removing all the skin is not as easy as it sounds but I hate all the grease that comes with the skin.)

Place the chicken breast side down in the slow cooker (without water). Cook 4-5 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Mine was done in four hours on high when I checked the temp of the dark meat. (When cooking a whole chicken I use an instant read thermometer to make sure the thigh has reached 165-175 degrees. Need a temp cheat sheet? Click here.)

Now it’s your turn.

1. Choose your creation, share about it and snap a photo if you can.

2. In your post, link back the original blogger/idea, rather than your Pinterest pin. That way credit goes to the proper person. šŸ™‚ (But feel free to add your Pinterest profile link so we can follow you!)

3. Add a link back here so others can play along.

4. If you want to use it, here is the html code for the logo:
