  • Slow Cooker


  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 oz packet dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1 oz packet dry au jus gravy mix
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick
  • 5-6 jarred peperoncini peppers


Step 1: Prep Your Chicken

  • Start by removing your boneless, skinless chicken breast from the package and placing it in the bottom of the Crock-Pot.

Step 2: Toss in Your Additional Ingredients

  • Add both the ranch and au jus packet on top of the chicken in the slow cooker. You will place the butter on top of these packets, followed by the peperoncini peppers.

Step 3: Slowly Cook Your Chicken

  • Place your chicken on high for up to four hours or low for up to six hours. When you remove the lid after the allotted time, you will have the juiciest, tastiest chicken available to serve to your family! Just shred the chicken with two forks and enjoy over rice or mashed potatoes.


  • Substitutes for Au Jus Gravy Mix :If you do not have au jus sauce, there are a few different substitutes that you can use to prepare this dish. You can use beef broth as a liquid alternative. If you do not have beef broth, you can combine the beef stock powder with onion powder, dried parsley, corn starch, black pepper, and garlic powder to create a homemade au jus sauce packet to use when making this dish.
  • Stove Top Directions:Put your ingredients in a large stockpot. You should put them in the same order that you would if you were using a slow cooker. Place a cover on your stockpot. If you do not have a lid that fits, place aluminum foil on top and keep your chicken covered. Allow the chicken to cook low and slow on the stovetop. You can come back to check on it regularly. It should cook within four hours, but you can check it periodically to ensure it is good to go before you serve it
