I made this last Sunday for Don and me. It went together very easy and was done by the time we were home from church! I did broil the chicken at the end to get the skin crispy.
Crockpot Ranch Onion Whole Chicken
Whole Chicken approx. 4 – 5 pounds
1 Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup – 1 oz. packet
1 Hidden Valley Ranch Mix packet (1 oz.) or 3 Tbsp Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix
3 Garlic Cloves, crushed, then peeled
1 Tsp. Paprika
Add dry ingredients to small bowl and mix together for rub. Rinse chicken, remove innards and pat dry with paper towels.
Generously add rub to inside and outside of chicken. Place three peeled garlic cloves inside of chicken.
Place chicken in resealable bag overnight to marinate. (optional)
Carefully place chicken into 6 - 7 quart Crockpot. Cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours, or until done. Can broil for a few minutes to crisp the skin.
Use meat thermometer in thick portion of breast to verify if chicken is done at 165 degrees Enjoy!!
