Recipe Tips

  • You can shred the chicken if you want the chicken coated by the ranch sauce as much as possible.
  • Bacon bits are a great way of adding even more flavor to this recipe. However, be careful as they may make the sauce too salty. I love sprinkling them over the top as a garnish.
  • Chicken thighs can be used instead of chicken breasts.
  • You may need to make ranch dressing seasoning from scratch if you cannot find it at your local store or online at places like Amazon.
  • The mushrooms are optional but do add a fair bit of flavor.
  • Chicken breasts are prone to drying out, so do not try to cook the meat for longer than the recommended times. The thickness of the chicken breast may also impact cooking times.
  • You can reduce the cooking time to three hours by setting the slow cooker to the high setting.
