Ranch Chicken Breasts, the Meal that Keeps on Giving

A few night ago I saw something on Pinterest that I wanted to try.  It was a Ranch Porkchop recipe that you cook in the crock pot.  It sounds yummy.

But, I didn't have any pork chops.  Or paprika, and this recipe wanted paprika.  I didn't have Cream of Mushroom soup, but I had cream of chicken.  And I had chicken breast.

So, I sort of took what I did have and put it in a crock pot.  And it looked like this.

Well, It didn't LOOK promising.  Actually, it looks kind of like creamed potatoes.  I promise there is chicken under there.  It smelled heavenly though.

I set it in the fridge with orders to my husband to turn the crock pot on when he got home and cook it for 6 hours for me.

Well, he cooked it for 5 hours, so the chicken wasn't as tender as I wanted it to be.  But it was still pretty good.

When I got home after an 8 hour day I had one of the breasts, warmed up some lima beans I had cooked the night before, and put some of the gravy from the crock pot over some potatoes. 

I was really good!


2 large chicken breasts
1 pack powder ranch dressing
1 can cream of chicken soup
4 tbsp butter
5 tbsp cream cheese (I used the soft cream cheese that comes in a tub and I put on my bagles, because that is all I had)


Place chicken breasts into crock pot

Heat butter and cream cheese in microwave in short intervals, stirring between until melted and creamy.

Combine cream of chicken soup, the butter/cream cheese mixture and powdered ranch dressing in a bowl.  Stir until well combined.

Pour over chicken breasts.

Cook on low heat for 6 hours.


Since I'm the only one that eats this, I got 2 meals from the chicken breasts.

I also got a 3rd meal.  I had a lot of the creamy sauce left, so I cooked some plain elbow noodles, and poured the sauce over it, and added a tiny bit of leftover hamburger meat that I browned.  And viola....meal #3.

Yeah, I eat at my computer even though I know I really shouldn't.


  1. That looks yummy!! If there was any left after the meal, I would of shredded the chicken for sandwiches for next days lunch.

    As for being thick sauce in the crock pot. You can always add a little water, chicken broth or milk to thin it out. Myself, i would of kept it the you made it. I like it thicker.

    1. I liked the thicker broth. It was not really THICK as much as just creamy instead of a thin gravy.
