Creamy Ranch Crockpot Chicken

Creamy Ranch Crockpot Chicken

 Repin this recipe for later!

Before joining Trim Healthy Mama, I had this really easy go-to chicken recipe that I could put in the crockpot. The only thing is it uses cream of chicken soup which has some iffy ingredients in it. But it turns out it’s pretty easy to alter the recipe without taking away any of the yumminess!

My husband loves this dish. We used to eat it over potatoes or rice, but since this is a THM S, those are not good options for weight loss. It tastes really good on its own and last time I made it I had it with green beans and cheesy squash casserole. You could also serve it with mashed “fauxtatoes” if you want, but my tummy doesn’t tolerate those.

This is a great recipe to leave in the crockpot Sunday morning while we go to church and it’s ready when we get home for lunch

When making this for my family, I use:

3 boneless chicken breasts (you could use up to 5 without having to increase the sauce)

1 8 oz package of cream cheese

2 cups chicken broth

1 package of ranch dressing mix (I use Simply Organic), or 3 TBSP homemade

 Place the chicken in the crock pot first. I have even put them in there frozen with no problems. Place the cream cheese on top, followed by the ranch powder and chicken broth. Cover and cook on high 5-6 hours, or low 7-8 hours.

When you take it out, it should be tender and fall apart. Pour extra sauce over the chicken. It makes a delicious gravy!

This recipe is sooo easy and tasty! And if you love the meaty creaminess of this recipe, make sure you try out my recipe for creamy beef stroganoff!

    I love making crock pot recipes because they are so easy. This looks good and would be great on its own but my family would love it over rice.

    OK, pinned it since I have no printer ink and I’ll be making this for sure. At first glance, I thought it was made with cream of mushroom. My mom makes it like that and it is my favorite. Now, this might be right up there with her chicken. I think my kids would like this recipe even more than the soup in it.

      If you would rather the cream of mushroom flavor, just use beef broth instead of chicken and dice up a couple of mushrooms really fine!

  3. I haven’t tried to make chicken in my crockpot yet, so I am excited to try this recipe! I love that it has ranch dressing. It’s my favorite!

  4. This is an easy recipe recipe that I think my family would love for me to make. It is so easy being made in the Crockpot!
