Slow Cooker Roasted Ranch Chicken

This was a very tender and moist chicken.  Jenna put it in the crockpot at noon and by 4:30 it was perfectly done.

Slow Cooker Roasted Ranch Chicken

1 small Oven roaster chicken ( no bigger than 5-6lbs)
1 lemon, juiced
2 tbs Worcestershire  sauce
1 stick of unsalted butter **Beth used 2 t olive oil instead of the butter
2 tbs ranch seasoning 
salt and pepper
aluminum foil
6 qt slow cooker

  1. Salt and pepper the inside and out of the your chicken. 
  2. Ball 4, 1 inch balls of aluminum foil up and place at the bottom of your slow cooker. 
  3. Place chicken in your slow cooker on top of foil balls. 
  4. Spread butter(or oil) over the top and sides of the bird. Then drizzle with lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and sprinkle with ranch seasoning.
  5. Place top on the slow cooker and cook on high for about 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
  6. When ready to serve, carefully remove chicken from your slow cooker and place in a roasting pan. To do this I use the biggest tongs I have or some large spatulas. Make sure you have a prepared roasting pan sitting right next to the slow cooker. This chicken is really, really tender if can fall apart if you are not careful.
  7. Place under the broiler (set on high) and broil until the skin starts to brown. Usually takes about 2-3 minutes for me. 
  8. Remove from oven and dig in!
