Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Creamy Ranch Crock Pot Chicken & Veggies

Who would have thought that all this thrown in a crock pot would taste so good? And easy? Oh yeah! You can use just about any of your favorite vegetables in this dish, canned or frozen or fresh. Double it if you’re feeding a crowd but we had about 6 servings of this made with the recipe below so it doesn’t make a ton which is good for me. Since we eat everything I make and there are just the two of us, leftovers of the same thing for a more than a couple of days gets real old, real fast. Anyway...for a tasty dish with hardly any effort, make THIS.

Creamy Ranch Crock Pot Chicken & Veggies

2 tablespoons butter ~ melted
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts ~ cut into bite-sized pieces
3 cups veggies ~ corn, carrots, green beans, celery, etc. (Any of your favorites that equal 3 cups.)
3 - 4 small red potatoes ~ cut into large bite-sized chunks
1 medium onion ~ diced
1 10-ounce can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1 1-ounce packet dry Ranch Dressing mix
6 slices of bacon ~ cooked crisp and crumbled
Salt and pepper, to taste
Add melted butter to the crock pot.
Then add the potatoes, veggies and onions. Add salt and pepper and toss to coat.
Add diced chicken.
In a medium bowl, combine the soup, sour cream, milk and ranch dressing.
Pour over the chicken.
Turn crock pot to high and cook 4 - 5 hours, stirring a couple of times throughout the cooking process.
Sprinkle crumbled bacon on top then serve!
