Recipe

Pretty much at any given time you can find a rotisserie chicken in my fridge. It makes the perfect quick lunch or dinner and there are a million and one ways to jazz it up in recipes. Tacos, salads, lettuce wraps, quick soups, pasta, the options are endless. So when I first saw a recipe for a slow cooker rotisserie chicken, I couldn’t wait to try it. The result is a perfectly moist and tender chicken that can be seasoned any way you wish. Roast it at the end for crispy skin or you can remove the skin before cooking for a lower calorie option. Simple and delicious.
