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.)

When do you add the gar­lic?


Hel­lo! I’m very new to crock pot world, so I’m sor­ry if this is a dumb ques­tion. Haha. Do you cook the chick­en first or do you just throw it in frozen or straight out of the fridge uncooked? Thank you thank you!!


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 »
