Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken Recipe with Tastefully Simple Sweet & Smoky BBQ Seasoning

Tastefully Simple Disclosure Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken Recipe


A long time ago I came across a recipe to make Crockpot rotisserie chicken.  Unfortunately, I never clipped or bookmarked that recipe, but I DID remember the basic premise of how to do it.  So, when I had the opportunity to try Tastefully Simple Sweet & Smoky BBQ Seasoning, I thought it would be perfect for adding flavor to my own attempt at Crockpot rotisserie chicken.

The Tastefully Simple Sweet & Smoky BBQ Seasoning is a combination of brown sugar, hickory smoke and other ingredients.  It’s perfect for spice-rubbed ribs, chicken and more.

The Tastefully Simple Sweet & Smoky BBQ Seasoning is a brand new product for spring and will only be available for a limited time.

On to the recipe – – – Since we don’t care for dark meat chicken in our house, I decided to make just two chicken breasts rather than a whole chicken. This recipe is so easy to make and it’s great to come home to at the end of a long day!
