This easy Crock Pot Ranch Chicken recipe
has just four ingredients.
It's super delicious and of course, low carb. I often make it for Sunday Dinner.
And thank you, my darling DIL, Lani for sharing this yummy recipe with the family.
Crock Pot Ranch Chicken is an excellent candidate for a 'dump' type dish. With just four ingredients it almost makes itself.
In fact I'm about to have it for lunch. I got up this morning and placed all the ingredients in the Crock Pot before I got going on my day.
Now the aroma is filling the house and I have a steamed cauliflower head waiting to be grated into 'faux rice' or 'cauli-rice'. I call it 'Magic Cauliflower' and you can find my recipe here.
I love this low carb trick and use it a lot. But of course you can serve it on a bed of regular rice or noodles too. 🙂 Enjoy! -- Laura
A few 'Chicken Tips'
Maybe I should have a category for 'Chicken Recipe of the Week' here on the my blog. You already know I've been making a lot of chicken recipes. I find it to be so versatile and thrifty.
Chicken fits the bill (literally) for low carbers and other diets as well. It's thrifty.
When boneless, skinless chicken breasts go on sale, I buy extra and freeze them.
If the chicken is fresh, never frozen, I will chop some of it into chunks, some into tenders and leave some whole and then freeze them.
Once in a while I'm super organized and put together a few 'dump' recipes in freezer gallon bags and stack them neatly in my fridge freezer for later use.
