Easy peezy amazing crock pot tasting cool ranch chicken dish that is sure to satisfy any family member. Makes enough to top your lunch the next day
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.
