Weightwatchers Spicy Rotisserie Style Chicken

Weightwatchers Communion Recipe 

Firstly i must apologise for the quality of the pictures, im afraid my camera has gone A.W.O.L so im left using my phone as a camera and this does not do any form of justice for this recipe. 

So Communion season is nearly upon us and i know a lot of people this year are celebrating at home and having family get together's.  Days like these can prove difficult for us Weightwatchers folk and trying to cater for most peoples taste can be difficult. 

If i go to any of these type of parties i love meaty dishes with rice or pasta not necessarily sauces but juicy meats.   So when i saw this posted from Mary of i thought this is one that i have to try. 

This was so Juicy, meaty and just enough spice to suit most peoples taste that i thought i should post this one. Its actually really simple and quick and you let the meat do all the work which if you are the person catering for having family over this is perfect because you can tend to all your other chores or cooking in the meantime plus the majority of the "work" is done the night before. 

Im actually going to leave this ready for a friend of mine whose daughter is making her Communion in May and i would not do that if i thought it was just mediocre.
