Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken

Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken

As a busy mom always in search of that 25th hour in the day, I am in love with my slow cooker!  On the days I use it, things run so much more smoothly in my home.  Dinner is cooking away all on its own while I tend to the craziness that is the laundry pile, my 2 small children and my work online.

You can put just about anything in a slow cooker.  With chicken, you can also pair it with so many things.  Really the options are endless!  That’s what had me thinking last week when I made this new-to-me dish.  The inspiration for this recipe came from Blogging Mom of 4’s Pot Roast Recipe.  Last week, I had already made a couple of different recipes that called for red meat of some sort and was really hungry for chicken at that point.  I didn’t want to make the same kind in the slow cooker every time.  I kept thinking ‘what can I pair the chicken with that I actually have the ingredients for on hand?’   Then it hit me, use the canned soup in the pantry and an envelope of ranch seasoning.  (Like my friend, Dawn did in her pot roast).

Ingredients needed:

  •  4-6 frozen chicken breasts – I keep Aldi’s frozen bags of chicken breasts on hand at all times
  • (1) 1-oz of ranch powder seasoning
  • 3-4 cups of water
  • (2) 10.5 oz cans of soup – You can use cream of chicken, cream of celery, cream of mushroom – there’s no right or wrong
  • salt & pepper to taste, optional – I don’t use very much salt in my cooking at all.
  • (1) 16 oz. bag of baby carrots (just because it’s one of my favorite veggies and then it’s done cooking for you too!)

There’s no formal directions except to just put it all in your slow cooker for about 4-6 hours on high.
I usually serve this with a side of mashed potatoes too.

Enjoy!!
