It’s Wednesday! And that means, it’s time for another Tried and True recipe!!
Today’s winner is a super simple but delicious Crockpot Ranch Chicken, cooked up the easy way – in a crock pot! My favorite thing about this recipe is that the ingredients are all items I keep handy in my kitchen at all times. My second favorite thing (or maybe its tied with the first) is how simple this recipe is to put together.
Dinner can sometimes be a challenge, so when I find a recipe that makes my life easier, I hold on to it. This Ranch Chicken recipe was just so simple and loved by the whole crew, that we will definitely be making it again. To change it up we may add different veggies, but carrots are a family favorite and they were a great addition to this recipe.
I think we can all agree that slow cooker recipes are the best and require such little work! We loved that with the crock pot, we could make a new, delicious recipe that was flavorful and kid-friendly!
