If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker for recipes that call for that.

It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

I also really like this crockpot as well.  I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

What to serve with creamy salsa ranch chicken pasta?

The cream sauce is amazing in this dish so I really love to have some type of bread to dip into it.  Trust me! You will want to get every last drop of the sauce.

We love Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks Recipe and it is perfect for getting every last bit of that amazing sauce. The ranch cream sauce  is so delicious.

We often serve a simple salad with this meal. It is quick and easy and goes great with the pasta.

You could also try Roasted Green Beans or learn how to steam broccoli in the microwave for a super easy veggie side dish.

Keep it simple and enjoy!

Crock pot salsa ranch chicken is so easy!

You can easily substitute items in this recipe based on what you have on hand. Feel free to use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts.

Also, any type of pasta will work.  We used rotini but feel free to use what you have. Elbow, bow tie, penne or any type of pasta will be so delicious.

I like to begin preparing the rotini pasta while the chicken is cooking. Once you have finished cooking begin preparing the pasta and you will everything ready to go!

We have even used rice instead of pasta and it was so yummy. This is a must try recipe and seriously so amazing.

  1. It hard to quantify an exact size on the serving as each batch will be slightly different. 1 serving is 1/6 of the entire the amount. Thank you!

  2. I loved this recipe. Simply and easy to follow with only a few ingredients and it was delicious. My kids loved it and they are picky eaters. This one is a winner in my household.

  3. You can use either frozen or fresh. If you use fresh chicken, then I would reduce the cooking time by 30 minutes. Thank you!

  4. Not at this time, but here is how I would make this in the instant pot. Place chicken, cream soup, ranch seasoning and salsa in the instant pot with 2 cups of water or chicken broth. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes (if the chicken is frozen) or 20 minutes (if the chicken is fresh) with a quick release. Shred the chicken and stir in the uncooked pasta. Make sure the pasta is covered and add more chicken broth or water if needed. Seal and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes with a quick release. Stir in the sour cream while still warm and serve with the tortilla strips. I hope you enjoy it!

  5. Do you have to double the recipe if you add four chicken breasts? Like the salsa or anything else?

  6. I haven’t tried that yet but I think it would be great cold too! If you serve it cold, please let us know how it turns out!
