Crock Pot Cool Ranch Chicken- SRC

Crock Pot Cool Ranch Chicken

So, besides my continual summertime interest in looking up grilling recipes, right now I’m addicted to looking up great slow cooker recipes. I figure I should get somewhat prepared/ inspired, for when The Bean comes this winter. Gotta find some simple tasty meals that we can whip up instead of eating pbj or pasta 24/7 or getting take out. The Bean is costing us enough now so constant take out is out of the question anyway.

Well, I think I found a real winner that we will enjoy repeatedly when our little Bean arrives. The Crock Pot Cool Ranch Chicken from Erin’s blog Our Table for Seven was such a hit for this month’s Secret Recipe Club post. Isn’t it just the best when you come across a recipe that you really enjoy? 🙂

A recipe with 4 ingredients that takes about 2 minutes to prep is my kind of recipe. The thing that sets this apart from a typical pulled chicken recipe for tacos is the ranch seasoning. It really out the taco flavor and gives it a bit of a kick. Which, for me, meant that my taco didn’t need much added to it since the meat was so flavorful so just some arugula, tomato, and a bit of sharp cheddar.

    I gave my crockpot away during our move last year, but I pretty much decided I’m getting a new one in the Fall… so convenient for this type of recipe!

    Great photos, great pick for your reveal day, which I hope you are enjoying as much as I am 😉
