So easy!  It is ready right in time for dinner and it is a meal that the family will love.  Tender chicken, potatoes, and carrots in a creamy ranch sauce.  It will seem like you slaved in the kitchen all day for this delicious meal!

    Hi Alyssa! Do you know what I could use in replace of the cream of chicken soup – I can’t usually find the gluten free version anywhere. Thanks!

      YOu can make your own cream of whatever by making a rue as a base. Melt 2 TB butter, and add 2 TB flour and cook for 1 min. Then add milk or chicken broth or beef broth. What ever flavor base you want it to be. Makes an excellent sub for cream of whatever. :)

    Can I slow cook this in the oven? My crockpot isn’t large enough. How long should I bake it in a dutch oven & at what temp?

    Thank you for sharing such great recipes! :) This one however did not work out for me. I cooked in the crock pot on low for 6 hours. My crock pot usually works awesome. At the end of 6 hours the carrots were still hard and the chicken was not quite done. I did use more soup for more gravy. It was probably just the cook. :)

    Well I put the chicken in on low for 5 hour while I was on my lunch. Smells good but the chicken is still completely raw. I’m going to cook it another hour on high and hope its finished by dinner time. Next time I’ll try setting it on low for 8 hour before I leave for work. :)

    I loved this recipe! It was so quick and simple and turned out so delicious. As a busy college student, I love easy recipes like this. The chicken was so tender and I loved that I had some leftovers. Thank you so much for sharing this Alyssa! I will definitely be making this again.

    I have this in my crockpot for tonight’s dinner. I added some chopped onion, frozen peas and toward the end I made dumplings. Can’t wait to try!

    When you double the soup and ranch packet mix for extra gravy, do you also double the amount of milk you use?
    TIA!

    I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for so long & FINALLY tried it today. I think I may have overcooked it because I’m still a crockpot newbie & was really paranoid after reading the comments. I had it going for about 7.5 hours, mostly on low, but one hour on high early on to kickstart the process. I was worried at first there wouldn’t be enough liquid to keep the veggies & chicken from scorching, but since I used frozen chicken, there ended up being plenty. Maybe too much, actually, because the flavors were a little bland. :[ I clearly have a lot to learn in slow cooking, so thanks for inspiring me to try!

    I tried this recipe for the first time tonight. I cooked it for 4 hours on high and the carrots and potatoes were still rock hard when it was dinner time:/ I’m not sure what went wrong… Maybe next time.
