This easy Keto Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken is the perfect set it and forget it meal! It is great for tacos, salads and keto meal prep!
This easy Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken is a staple in our house. I actually cannot believe I’ve never blogged it before. It is my go to dinner when I am feeling uninspired because it is extremely versatile. You can toss this with pasta, serve over rice, add to toasted buns with melty cheese or even tacos! This recipe also happens to be keto!
Years ago when I came up with this I was inspired by that famous Mississippi roast recipe. We actually cannot have it anymore because it calls for a packaged gravy mix which isn’t gluten free, however I loved the flavor of the peppers and the ranch together so I took that and ran with it. This recipe has super basic ingredients, chicken, butter, cream cheese, ranch seasoning and peppers. You just put them all in your slow cooker and let the magic happen. The cream cheese and butter melt and meld with the juice from the peppers and creates the most delicious creamy sauce. At dinner time I just shred the chicken and peppers, it is so tender it really just falls apart!
As I mentioned, this is a great all purpose chicken recipe. Since I have been doing Keto I had this with roasted broccoli and radishes with a little bit of parmesan and then had the leftovers on a “taco shell” (melted provolone cheese) and a salad. Mr. Maebell, who is not Keto likes it best on Tostadas or on a toasted gluten free english muffin.
