Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Stew

With winter here, there is nothing better than a bowl of stew, right?!?! Well, I live in Houston, so my winter is about 70 degrees and sunny, but I still love a good bowl of soup/stew, haha!!

Since Mondays are my “slow cooker” days due to cleaning my house and not wanting to dirty up the kitchen, I decided to throw this together for dinner last week and it was a huge hit with the family. My kiddos happily at it all up, including the veggies, and my hubby took leftovers the next day for work. It was quick to throw together, quite hearty, and made plenty for everyone!

If you are in a state that is currently cold, unlike Texas, I highly recommend trying this stew. If you are in Texas, turn the A/C down and pretend its cold outside, then make this, haha!!

    What could be used in place of the ranch dressing mix? I am so tired of it being used in so many recipes. And I am not crazy about the taste it adds to the food.

    You can make your own version by using dried parsley, dill weed, onion powder, onion flakes, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Just add about 1/2 tsp of each (more or less based on preference) and it should be great!!
