Back to Some Recipes: Rotisserie Chicken

I love me some rotisserie chicken.  I like to use it in a variety of recipes, or just to have it in the fridge to pick on for lunch. What I don't like is that they tend to be very small, and if you don't get them just out of the oven, they can be dry and pretty awful.  I actually have tapered off buying them lately because the last few I brought home were overdone and really salty, but I missed the wonderful taste of a good one. Devonshire Deb turned me onto A Year of Crockpotting.  Some of the recipes look a little wacky for my taste, but most are just great.  When she posted a recipe for homemade rotisserie chicken, I had to give it a shot.

Of course, no pictures - check out the blog - mine came out the same way and I have to tell you, this chicken was BETTER than store bought.  It couldn't have been easier.  I do heartily recommend pulling off the breast skin and any visible fat, you won't miss it and the juices are much leaner that  way.  

I also made oven fries that will be submitted for pictures very soon, because the kids loved them so much, they ate the whole dish! (Noble Pig - I will be submitting this one!)

WOW. That looks GREAT. I'm going to give it a try. I've always avoided doing chicken in the crockpot because the skin gets so rubbery. Don't know why I didn't of just taking it off!
