This buttery Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken is cooked with potatoes and green beans to make a savory gluten-free meal the whole family will love!
There is nothing I love more than a dinner that is complete with chicken, veggies and potatoes. If I can add butter and ranch to that meal then I’m in heaven! Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken is a perfect meal for a busy night. The prep only takes a few minutes and you will have dinner off your to-do list. My favorite part is everyone, kids included, will gobble it up and ask for seconds.
Another all in one dinner is my Garlic Butter Chicken and Veggies which is always on rotation in our monthly meal planning.

TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER RANCH CHICKEN
I always feel good when I can put a homemade dinner on the table. The best part about this meal is you can customize it to exactly what your family likes. I used chicken thighs in this recipe but you can swap for chicken breasts. If your family doesn’t like green beans use any hearty vegetable like carrots.
If you prefer to make your ranch from scratch here is an easy recipe that only takes minutes to make. That way you can control the ingredients and salt.
Leave the lid on while the meal is cooking. The potatoes need to be cooked
Gluten Free Chicken Dinner
All my recipes are gluten free because my husband has celiac, which means you are allergic to gluten. This dinner is completely gluten free so it is a great option for any one who is gluten free!
