This chicken recipe is an absolute favorite in my household. This recipe is so simple to make and only requires a handful of ingredients. You will want this recipe for dinner every night of the week! The pickles add a wonderful flavor that’s sweet and tangy. Every bite will have you wanting more!
Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Chicken: I used boneless and skinless chicken thighs for this recipe. You can use any cut of meat and it will taste great.
Mix: You will need ranch mix, and brown gravy mix to season the chicken. You will also use parsley to garnish the chicken for extra flavor.
Pickles: I like to use mini dill pickles along with the juice, but any type will work just fine.
How To Make Pickle Chicken
Step 1. Place the chicken into the slow cooker and sprinkle with the ranch mix and 1 packet of gravy mix. Save the other packet of gravy mix for later on. Add in the pickles and pour the juice on top. Put the butter on top of the other ingredients.
Step 2. Allow the ingredients to cook for 4-6 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high until the chicken is tender. Add the other gravy mix packet from earlier into the mix to thicken the sauce. Top with parsley, serve, and enjoy!
