Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken

  • Cooking Time:

    4 hours on LOW
  • Servings:



4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 T. Melted butter
8 oz. cream cheese
1 c. chicken broth (low-sodium)
1 small (1oz) package Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. paprika +extra to sprinkle over chicken before crocking
1 tsp. Mrs. Dash seasoning
5 fresh mushrooms (whole)

It’s no wonder that I love this Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken – I love chicken and I love ranch seasoning so I paired the two together in this recipe.  This chicken is very flavorful and you can even skip the sauce if you would like to keep it lighter – the chicken will still be moist!

  1. Place chicken breasts in the slow cooker.
  2. Pour 1/2 c. of chicken broth over chicken.
  3. Sprinkle 1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing mix over the chicken.
  4. Drizzle 1 T. melted butter and minced garlic over the chicken and sprinkle paprika over top.
  5. Cover. Cook on Low for 4 hours.
  6. Slice mushrooms.
  7. After 4 hours, heat mushrooms, cream cheese, remaining 1/2 c. chicken broth, 1 tsp. of paprika and 1 tsp. of Mrs. Dash in a small bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes or until melted. (stir every 30 seconds and add a little more broth or water if too thick)
  8. To serve, place chicken on plate and pour sauce on top.  (Optional: serve over rice or noodles.)

You use raw chicken, directly from the refrigerator. The crockpot will cook it for you. I’m assuming the crock pot is to be on “high” (heat) in order to cook the meat in 4 hours. Always check the temperature of the meat, before serving!! Past experience. I’ve been in a rush for supper and was cutting it close, using a crock pot before… And have had to do a quick throw together because my crockpot meal wasn’t done on time… So never ever ever give yourself “just” the time the recipe says it will be done in, it could take… Read more »
