I know I am not the only mom who looks for simplicity when it comes to cooking dinner. With back to school time looming I need things that are totally dump and go. We are talking the entire meal…sides and all. This recipe is one of my new favorites! This Crockpot Ranch Chicken Dinner has the chicken, potatoes, and green beans all tossed in together in a medley of delicious bliss.
This can be made gluten free, dairy free, paleo (does that include potatoes?) Any way, it’s amazing….I love it…and it is hitting my regular rotation as we head into the busy time of year. PS. The kids cleaned their plates, so it is officially a winner!
Into the crockpot went 4 small or 2 large chicken breasts. Mine were HUGE so I only needed 2. We order our chicken from ZayconFresh and they are always big enough to feed a couple people.
Anyway, I quartered some potatoes and tossed them in. I did about 5 russets. Then 2 drained cans of green beans. I topped it off with the equivalent of 1 packet of ranch dressing mix. I actually make my own ranch dressing mix, and it is so good. I also chopped up some bacon and put it on top because you just can’t go wrong with bacon.
Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8. My crockpot is 6 quarts, you can check it out here if you would like to know more about it.
This was prettier before I attacked it with a fork to make sure it was done, but it smells amazing! I pulled out the chicken breasts and sliced them into portions. Served with the potatoes, green beans, and a small side salad it was an amazing meal.
