No, you should never put frozen chicken in the crockpot, as this will put the chicken in the temperature danger zone for too long and could cause food poisoning. Always use fresh or fully thawed chicken. Thaw frozen chicken overnight in the refrigerator before adding it to the crockpot.
I like chicken breasts for this recipe, but you could also use boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
Yes, you can substitute 1½ tablespoons of ranch dressing in place of the dry ranch seasoning packet in this recipe.

I haven’t made this yet but I want to. I am just now printing the recipe. In the picture it looks like cream of chicken soup, not broth. Am I mistaken?
When you mix the broth with the ranch seasoning packet, it turns creamier!
Makes sense. Thank you
Mine still looks like broth with seasoning. Nothing like that picture. That looks like straigh up cream of chicken.
It should thicken up in the slow cooker!
