Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken and Red Potatoes is a fast and easy meal that the entire family will enjoy.
Even though my daughter is not a toddler anymore, she is still as picky as can be. I can never go wrong though with a chicken recipe for dinner. Lola always comes in the kitchen and begs for a taste of chicken before dinner is even ready. This recipe cooks potatoes and chicken together with a touch of butter on the potatoes and a ranch dressing packet for flavor. I added a side of fresh green beans to make this a complete meal.
Below is my YouTube video about how to make this Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken and Red Potatoes recipe. You can follow me on YouTube, here.
