Have you ever wished for a cooking hack that not only saves you time but also results in delicious meals and homemade bone broth? Well, today’s your lucky day! I’m sharing a double-duty recipe that’ll make you feel like a kitchen superstar. The best part? It only requires one pot—the trusty slow cooker. Get ready to roast a mouthwatering chicken and craft homemade bone broth like a pro.

Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken


  • 5 lb (2.5 kg) whole chicken, giblets removed
  • 2 tbsp Rotisserie Chicken seasoning


  • Create a “snake” or coil using about 2 feet (65 cm) of aluminum foil. This will serve as a makeshift baking rack to keep the chicken elevated from the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Rinse the chicken thoroughly, trim away any excess skin, and remove the giblets (save these for the bone broth). Place the chicken on the aluminum foil inside the slow cooker, breast side up. If desired, tie the chicken’s legs together with kitchen twine for a neater presentation. Sprinkle the Rotisserie Chicken seasoning evenly over the chicken.
  • Cover the slow cooker and cook on the low setting for 5-6 hours or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C) when measured with an instant-read thermometer.
  • To crisp up the chicken skin, preheat your broiler and place the cooked chicken on a baking sheet. Position it about 10 inches from the broiler and broil for 4-5 minutes or until the skin turns deliciously crispy.
  • Carve the chicken and serve it with your favorite vegetables. Be sure to save the chicken bones and carcass for the next step—making homemade bone broth.

Slow Cooker Bone Broth


  • Chicken carcass (from the roasted chicken), meat removed
  • Giblets (saved from the roasted chicken)
  • 4-5 carrots, roughly chopped
  • 4-5 celery stalks (with leaves), roughly chopped
  • 4-5 peeled garlic cloves
  • 1 large yellow onion, quartered
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 8 cups (1.8 ml) water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp dried parsley and thyme


  • Place the chicken carcass (with meat removed), saved giblets, chopped vegetables, quartered onion, apple cider vinegar, bay leaves, sea salt, and dried parsley and thyme into the bottom of your 6-quart slow cooker.
  • Cover the ingredients with 8 cups of water, ensuring everything is well-submerged.
  • Put the lid on your slow cooker and cook on the low setting for 12-18 hours. This extended cooking time allows the flavors to meld and the broth to become rich and flavorful.
  • Once the bone broth is ready, remove the bones and cooked veggies from the slow cooker. Pour the remaining liquid through a strainer into a large bowl, separating the clear and flavorful broth from any solids.
  • The homemade bone broth can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or frozen for several months. Use it as a base for soups, a warming drink, or a replacement for store-bought chicken broth in your favorite recipes.

These recipes are surprisingly simple to make and offer the satisfaction of a delicious roast chicken meal and nutritious homemade bone broth. Plus, you’ll save money and enjoy the many health benefits of bone broth. It’s a win-win! Give it a try, and you’ll wonder why you didn’t start sooner.

Make it an amazing day!
