8 Weeks of Easy Family Dinners E-Cookbook!
This Creamy Taco Ranch Chicken is a quick and easy pantry recipe that cooks all day in your slow cooker. The sauce is rich and creamy and super flavorful, and the chicken tender and delicious.
When your entire family gobbles their dinner down in 5 minutes flat, you know you’ve got a good one! That’s pretty much what happened with this Slow Cooker Taco Ranch Chicken. It had been cooking since late morning, so when the kids got home from school they immediately noticed the scent wafting through the house. It was like grandma’s kitchen and your favorite Mexican restaurant all rolled into one.
Then when I served it on a bed of my favorite Mexican Rice and watched my daughter scarf more than half of her portion before I’d even sat down, well, I knew I couldn’t wait to share it with you!
I love that this Taco Ranch Chicken is full of ingredients that I always have in my pantry:
These are staples that I regular cook with, but had never used in quite this combination. Of course the best part is you just dump it all into the slow cooker (except the cream cheese) and let the machine do it’s thing.
You can serve this over rice, in tortillas (wouldn’t this make a fantastic burrito??), with pasta or just on it’s own. I am already craving it and can’t wait to make it again!
Store Leftover Taco Ranch Chicken in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Because of the cream cheese, I don’t recommend freezing as the reheating processing can cause the sauce to separate.
