Crock Pot Asiago Ranch Chicken is an easy and delicious weeknight meal!
Making my crock pot work for me is a necessity in the business of life. Being a mom of 3 with crazy busy schedules filled with activities that most of my friends cringe at when just listening to, demands that I use my crock pot a few times a week. It makes life interesting to say the least. If I plan ahead a healthy weeknight meal is always available. The key is planning ahead.
Simple ingredients on hand like boneless chicken breast, broth and cheese makes this an easy recipe to whip up.
If you need this to be ready after a long day at work, just cook on low for 6 hours and 3o minutes then keep warm until you get home.
It’s creamy and comforting without all the carbs. You could of course serve this over pasta if you desire.
My family enjoyed it topped with bacon as a sandwich. The buns you see below are Against the Grain rolls and made from mozzarella cheese in fact. They aren’t low carb so I skipped the bun and just enjoyed this chicken with a side salad topped with bacon of course!
My only suggestion is to make sure to pound the breasts thinner than you see in my picture above. I could not find my meat tenderizer tool and tried to pound the chicken with plastic wrap between the pieces and a wooden spoon, didn’t work that great. So moral of the story, proper tools in the kitchen make a difference lol!
