Slow-Cooker Ranch Chicken

Our life is total chaos right now.


We have a 4 year old with multiple food allergies, a 2 year old that is a potty training diva and baby boy due in May taking Zumba classes at 3 a.m.  My husband is on a 4-days-on, 5-days-off-4-days-0n, 1-day-off, 10-hours/day rotation with extra security jobs shoved here and there until sometime in April, when I become a Kentucky Derby widow and he can’t get off work for any of the Derby Festival events unless he’s dying.  True story.

Needless to say, I’m always scouring the internet for recipes that are easy-peasy and something my kids will eat.  I found a recipe for some Ranch Pork Chops, and since I now have a Homemade Ranch Seasoning recipe that is really good, I thought I’d give this one a whirl.

Don’t blink…it’s so short you’ll miss it!

Slow-Cooker Ranch Chicken

Slow-Cooker Ranch Chicken
serves 4

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 box of Pacific Condensed Soup, chicken or mushroom (gluten free)
1 TB Homemade Ranch Seasoning (OR one packet of that other stuff…)

1.  In a slow cooker crock, stir soup and seasoning together.
2.  Place the chicken on top of the sauce, and then add the lid to the slow cooker.
3.  Cook on low for 5 hours or high for 3 hours, until chicken reads 160F with a meat thermometer.

I was being a good girl the night we had this, so I made mashed sweet potatoes and roasted asparagus.  I couldn’t get nearly enough of the sauce, though, so I would also suggest mashed potatoes or plain noodles on the side, plus some green beans!


You hear that?  I think there might be one more piece in the fridge, calling my name!

As always, please make sure your ingredients are safe for your food allergies.

    that looks too good. i suppose i will now enter the world of powdered buttermilk and see what happens! i’ve been wondering what i can do to get my hidden valley fix, and have it actually taste good and not have too much fake stuff in it! thanks for sharing. (totally unrelated – where can you get quinoa flakes around here?)
