Lately, I’ve been seeing some Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken Recipes floating around on Pinterest. Like many other things I see on Pinterest, I assumed this was too good to be true.
Succulent, evenly cooked, rotisserie style chicken from a crock pot? No way.
But I adore rotisserie chicken, and if there was an easy way to make it at home myself without having to buy yet another appliance to fit into my already cluttered kitchen, well then I was game to give it a try. I reviewed a few recipes and notes, and created my own version.
The key is to stick the chicken under the broiler first to crisp up the skin and seal in the moisture of the chicken. Then pop in in your slow cooker for the rest of the time to cook through. I was absolutely AMAZED at how good it turned out!! Seriously delicious. It was incredibly moist and juicy, and was totally falling off the bone. And it was way better than the rotisserie chickens I’ve purchased at stores or restaurants.
From now on, this is the only way I’ll have rotisserie chicken – it was that good, people. Just note that the nutritional information and the Weight Watchers Points I’ve calculated for this recipe is based on the WHOLE chicken, with the SKIN REMOVED. I added up the stats from the entire chicken and then divided it by 8 servings. So, your Points may vary a bit, depending on whether you are eating breast, thigh, wing, etc. But most importantly, remove the skin!
This will be one of the best Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipes you’ve ever made.
