Ever So Easy Crockpot Baked Chicken

A member of my Weight Watchers at Work group shared this healthy low-fat roasted chicken recipe at this week’s meeting. It seemed so bizarre and simple that I had to give it a try. The results were outstanding.

The chicken was super moist and perfectly done. Give it a try and let me know how it turned out for you. It will not have crisp browned skin. It does not matter to me since I remove the skin from the chicken. This chicken is delicious as a main dish. It is also perfect for dishes that use rotisserie, baked or boiled chicken. What could be easier!

  1. Purchase a 3-5 pound roasting chicken. It can be any size. It just has to fit into your crock-pot.
  2. Tear off a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum fol. It needs to be big enough to wrap around your chicken generously.
  3. Place the chicken on the foil and liberally coat with seasonings of your choice. Today I used salt, pepper and garlic powder. I suspect a grill seasoning, lemon pepper or Greek seasoning would be  perfect choices.
  4. Tightly wrap the chicken in the foil. Use your hands to press it close to the chicken.
  5. Place the foil wrapped chicken in the crock-pot. I know this sounds strange, but I was told wrapping the chicken tightly in foil makes all of the difference in the recipe.
  6. Put the cover on the crock-pot and set the temperature to low.
  7. Cook the chicken for 6 hours. If your chicken is larger, add more time. If it’s smaller, check it for earlier.
  8. Open the foil and That’s all there is to it. You have a perfectly cooked moist chicken.
