Ranch Crockpot Pork Chops
I had to make these simple ranch and cream of chicken pork chops after several of my readers told me about them after seeing my easy 3 ingredient French Onion Pork Chops. When I saw pork chops were on sale at my grocery store I knew exactly what recipe I was going to make for dinner this week.
I love a recipe that is simple to make but creates a fast dinner that the whole family can enjoy. I will tell you now this is another one of those recipes. The creamy sauce I could (and might) have eaten with a spoon it is so delectable. If you are looking for a lighter pork chop recipe my honey pork chops are a great option too.
What ingredients do you need for Cream of Chicken Pork Chops with Ranch?
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that you only need 4 ingredients that have no prep involved. The sauce helps to make sure the pork chops don’t dry out so you can have tender pork chops.
What are the best pork chops for Smothered Pork Chops?
I like to use boneless thick-cut pork chops for my crockpot recipes since they do not dry out as fast as the thin-cut pork chops. They only had thin-cut pork chops when I made this recipe so I watched them carefully so they didn’t overcook.
You can use bone-in pork chops as well they just take a little longer to cook because of the bone so always make sure to use a meat thermometer to check when the pork chop has reached the temperature of 145° F. This will ensure that your pork chops have the maximum amount of flavor and tenderness.
Hidden Valley Ranch Packet Pork Chops
I’m not going to lie I love Hidden Valley Ranch Packets! I have loved Hidden Valley Ranch since I was a kid. This is how we made ranch dip at our house and it is the only ranch packet I use. I still remember stirring the Hidden Valley Ranch packet into the sour cream container very slowly otherwise you will spill it everywhere.
I think the unique spices they include in their special recipe give this Ranch crockpot pork chop recipe all the flavor for the sauce. If you don’t like to use spice packets you can make your own version with this recipe. But for me, this recipe is all about easy and simple so I just like to use the ranch packet!

What to serve with Cream of Chicken Pork Chops?
This recipe is so versatile and can be served in so many different ways! We have served it over mashed potatoes, rice, and gluten-free noodles! I like to pair it with a delicious veggie like these brown sugar carrots, peas, or broccoli. If you want you can add some bread and side salad also.
All of the ingredients I use are gluten-free. My husband has celiac disease, which means you are allergic to gluten.
You will need to make sure to use gluten-free cream of chicken soup to keep this recipe gluten-free.
Cook the pork chops on your slow cooker’s low setting. This will make it easier to not overcook them.
Do not cook boneless pork chops for 6 hours. I always read recipes that say to cook pork chops for 6-8 hours. You will have tough and chewy pork chops if you cook them too long.
Make this meal lighter and use 1/3 fat cream cheese!
Swap the cream of chicken soup for the cream of mushroom soup and add mushrooms to add a veggie right into the meal.
