Sometimes we all need just a simple recipe or way to make dinner a little bit different, this Slow Cooker Lemon Ranch Chicken will do just that.
We are just a few weeks away from going back to school and that means our summer is coming to a close. The pool we go to has already changed their hours to gear up for back to school and in just about 4 weeks it will be closed for the season. I’m a little bit sad about that, maybe a lot sad because that also means we will soon be craving lake time but not able to go. Luckily, the fall is pretty mild around here so hopefully that means a little more time at the lake.
In the midst of summer ending, we are still incredibly busy, maybe more so as we head back to school. That means I need a quick and simple dinner and this time a little ranch packet and chicken can go a long way. I decided to make a simple ranch chicken in the slow cooker but instead of stopping there I added sliced lemon to it. This gave it a bit of a sweet twist to the zesty ranch seasoning. I decided to top ours over a little bit of rice and pair it with some fresh veggies. I thought this was delicious and the chicken was very juicy, not dry at all.
The best part? It only took a few minutes to put together and then we could get out the door to stock up on school clothes and supplies, plus enjoy a few hours by the pool for the end of the season.
Are you in need of some quick meals? I’m starting to realize that as my kids get older, I’m always in need of quick meal ideas. Those seem to be the only recipes that actually get made around here in the afternoons and evenings. It’s even better when I can put it together the night before and have it ready to go in the morning.
Now, I’m anxious to try this out in my new Instant Pot too. Do you have one? What do you cook in yours? I’ll be sharing some recipes using mine soon too!
