The Easiest Chicken Ever

READY IN: 6hrs 5mins
Recipe by CraftScout

This is the recipe that convinced me to start taking advantage of cheap whole chicken prices. When I read about it (somewhere on the internet), I couldn't believe it was that easy. I couldn't believe you didn't need any liquid. You don't. Trust me. Better yet, don't trust me - try the recipe for yourself!

I make chicken in the crockpot all the time but had never used italian dressing. This was good and easy to make. I didn't have a chicken with a pop up timer so I followed the recipe and cooked for six hours and this was really dry. I would try four next time.
