  • 2 to 3 pounds fresh not frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts (around 4-6 depending on size)
  • 1 Bottle of ranch dressing light or regular, but I wouldn’t use fat free
  • 1/2 cup or one stick of butter I like salted, but unsalted works too


  • Spray crockpot with cooking spray and place in the chicken breasts. Cut up butter into pieces and place on top of the chicken. Pour ranch dressing over the top.
  • Cook chicken in crockpot on high for 3-4 hours or low 5-7 hours.
  • It’s done when it’s so tender it just flakes apart with a fork. The internal temperature that’s considered safe for cooked chicken is 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Once you take out the chicken breasts, scoop out the sauce, whisk it, and serve over your chicken breasts like gravy
