Crock Pot Creamy Ranch Chicken

Our family loves chicken and I am always looking for ways to jazz up plain chicken. This recipe for Crockpot Chicken with ranch is so easy and out of this world amazing.

You are not going to believe how simple this recipe is. Literally everything gets tossed into the slow cooker and dinner will be waiting when you come home.

Also try Crockpot Ranch Chicken, Crock Pot Angel Chicken, and Crock Pot Chicken and Rice.

Ingredients for recipe: chicken, potatoes, carrots, cream of chicken soup, ranch mix, milk.

Ingredients for Ranch Chicken Recipe:

How to make Crockpot Chicken Ranch:

  • First, you need a small mixing bowl. Add the cream of chicken soup, milk and ranch dressing mix. Whisk all of this together.

  • Finally, cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours on high. You can also cook on high for 3 to 4 hours if you need to reduce the cooking time.
  • If you like the chicken to be in smaller pieces, shred it and then place back into the crock pot.

Keep reading for full nutritional information.


  • If the sauce seems to separate once chicken is cooked, just remove the chicken and vegetables from the crock pot. Whisk the sauce together and it should solve that problem.

    You can then add the chicken back to the slow cooker.

What to serve with Creamy ranch chicken?

  • Steamed Broccoli. Only 3 minutes and you can have a great side dish. It is tasty and perfect for busy weeknights.
  • Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks -Garlic bread stuffed with cheese is the perfect bread to serve with this chicken. It is perfect for dipping and so delicious.

Variation ideas

  • Try mixing it up with the vegetables. Green beans are yummy with the chicken. This would also be a great way to make this a one pot meal.
  • Use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. You can even mix both together.
  • Try using red potatoes. These are delicious in this one pot meal.
  • Add a second can of cream of chicken soup. You can add an extra can if you like even more sauce.
  • Add chicken broth. The consistency can be thinned by adding chicken broth.
  • Use cauliflower instead of potatoes. If you are trying to reduce carbs, use cauliflower as a substitution for the potatoes. The rich gravy makes even cauliflower tasty.
  • Omit the potatoes. Skip the potatoes in the crock pot and serve this recipe over mashed potatoes, egg noodles or rice.
  • Cream Soup. More ideas include: cream of mushroom and cream of celery. Another idea is to mix two different types of soup in this recipe.

How to store

Put leftovers inside an airtight container. Place in the fridge up to 5 days.

How to reheat

You can reheat individual servings in the microwave for 60 seconds or until heated through. If the sauce separates, just whisk it until creamy.

This is great for lunch later in the week. We all fight over who gets the leftovers. It really is that delicious.

Make this a freezer meal.

You can make this ahead of time so all you have to do is toss and go in the crock pot.

Put the chicken in a freezer bag. Then mix together the sauce and pour in the bag over the chicken.

Freeze until ready to cook. Do not add the potatoes and carrots until you are ready to put in the slow cooker.

Cook as normal and enjoy. This is a great way to cut down on a portion of the prep time.

I like to cook one batch and freeze another. It really is not any more work since you have all of the ingredients out. Plus, you will have another easy meal for later.

  1. Carrie Barnard says:

    I’m so sorry. Sometimes there is a lot of liquid in the chicken making a crockpot recipe runnier than normal.

  2. Tia Marie Gordon says:

    4 stars
    Followed the recipe exactly and this came out extremely watery. Practically soup :\. It still tasted good, but I’m not sure where I went wrong since the steps are so simple.

  3. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, frozen chicken will work in this recipe.

  4. Laura says:

    This was very good. We made it without changes. There were no leftovers. We’ll definitely make this again!

  5. Sara says:

    Dumped everything in the crockpot at 1; it was more than ready by 6. Made soft pretzel sticks to go with it, and it was a delightful and comforting dinner during our current post-blizzard frigid cold temperatures!
    I did everything as directed and had no issues. I will make it again.

  6. Carole D says:

    Can you use frozen chicken?

  19. Val says:

    Super excited! Just got it all in the crock pot ?? I had made 3 extra cups of shredded chicken last night so I used that instead. Added a tad of chicken broth to the mixture just in case. Since my chicken is already cooked. And doubled the “sauce” part, since I added an extra potato and a tad extra carrots. THANK YOU for the recipe ??

  20. Neisa Yadon says:

    Is there something that can be used instead of the ranch packet?

  21. Katrina says:

  23. Patricia Sarver says:

    Can the chicken be frozen?

  24. Doug says:

    Made it today. Very good. Had a side of rice with it. Will make it again.

  25. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes I think so . I would cook at 375 degree for about 40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

  26. Lisa says:

    Can this be made in conventional oven ? At what temperature? For how long ?

  27. Carrie Barnard says:

    That is a type o. I’ll fix that.

  28. DD says:

    One small line mentions Cream Cheese – yet it’s not included in the ingredient list, nor is it mentioned in the actual directions. How much of this ingredient, and when, is it used in this recipe?

  29. Carrie Barnard says:

    No you do not have to.

  30. Carrie Barnard says:

    No you do not have to season the chicken.

  31. Sierra says:

    Hi, I have not made this recipe yet, but I do plan on to because it looks so amazing and delicious. I was just wondering if seasoning the chicken is necessary because I heard that ranch seasoning can be salty, what would you recommend?

  32. Lisa says:

    Do I have to use whole milk?

  33. Darrell & Gwen says:

    So delicious and easy, my kids loved it!

  35. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, sweet potatoes would work great in this recipe. I would peel and dice them into large pieces.

  36. michelle potter says:

    can youuse sweetpotatoes?

  37. Pat says:

    Love your recipes and this one looks great as well! But I’m confused – cream cheese is mentioned several times in the description, but I don’t see any cream cheese in the ingredient list or instructions. Am I missing something?

  38. Kaylon Reichman says:
