Creamy ranch chicken
Healthy, not especially...but lately I've just been about what tastes good. What my family will eat. What makes me happy when I cook it.
Creamy Ranch Chicken
1 package (generally 3-4) boneless skinless chicken breasts
2-3 tablespoons ranch powder
1 stick of butter
1 block cream cheese-softened
1 can cream of mushroom soup
milk, if needed
I've done this in both the crockpot and the oven...so you pick which one you'd like to do. But it basically goes the same.
Crockpot-put chicken, butter, and ranch powder-cool high 4-5 hours or until chicken is cooked through.
Oven-same as above, oven on 350, probably 1-2 hours (or less, I have a phobia about undercooked chicken and I tend to overdo it probably)
Once the chicken is done, take the cooking liquid and mix it with the cream cheese, and soup-if it feels to thick for you add a splash of milk.
Add creamy mixture back to chicken-I generally cut the chicken up a bit, more bit sized pieces.
I serve it over mashed potatoes. I'm sure it would be good with rice as well!
