Ever since I first tried cooking a whole chicken in my slow cooker, I’ve been hooked. It gives me the most delicious, most juicy and moist chicken ever, hands down. They key is to stick it under the broiler for a bit before slow cooking it. This locks in the meat’s natural juices, and helps deliver an absolutely decadent meal. However, if you prefer a more crispy skinned exterior, simply do the broiling process after the chicken is slow cooked. This step is super easy, and will really make a difference in the end product. I also want to note that because this is a whole chicken, the servings will vary in nutritional stats and Points Plus, depending on which part of the chicken you eat and how large that serving is. On AVERAGE, each serving will range in 3-6 Points +, WITHOUT the skin. Breasts would be about 4 Points +, Drumsticks 3 Points +, Thighs 5 Points + …you get the idea. This Weight Watchers Crock Pot Whole Chicken Recipe has gone into our regular meal rotation, because it undeniably delicious. The lemon and rosemary seasoning is my favorite, but you can play around with other spices and herbs as much as you like. TIP: After you’ve removed all the meat, place the carcus of the chicken back in the crock pot with all of the leftover juices, lemons, onion, etc, add water, cover and slow cook on low overnight. The next morning strain out all the bits and you’ve got your own, homemade fresh chicken broth that is a zillion times tastier than any store bought kind! I freeze mine and save it for a future recipe. Seriously…DO THIS…you will love it!
