You can use any type of chicken but my family much prefers the boneless, skinless chicken thighs, which are a darker, juicier meat and also tend to be cheaper than the boneless skinless breasts.
Creamy Ranch Chicken
This super simple chicken recipe cooks in the crockpot for a delicious meal with little to no cleanup!
