Have you dusted off your slow cookers yet? Or do you use it year round like I do? I absolutely love my slow cooker. And this meal was slow cooked to perfection. Creamy and delicious and so tender that the chicken falls apart. This is my kind of meal!Slow cooker creamy ranch chicken with potatoes and carrots on a plate.Life is just busy. There is so much going on but it is so important for our family to sit down and eat together. Of course we have our macaroni and cheese and Little Ceasar’s nights, but I like to eat together each night. It took me 5 minutes to throw this meal in . 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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. 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. 🙂

    1. I tried this last night and mine were the same. I cooked it for another 4 hours and they were softer but still way to crunchy for my taste.

  5. 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?

  6. 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!

    1. 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. 🙂

      1. Great hint. Thanks for sharing it with thos of us who cannot handle the gluten. I will definitely give it a try in this deliciously sounding recipe.
