Creamy Ranch-Style Chicken and Potatoes with Carrots

I’ve tried a similar dish like this before… and I’m getting even closer to the ranch taste without using that packet of seasoning that’s full of MSG, etc… this is getting closer! I used cream in this dish to give it that yummy creamy texture… I may use buttermilk next time!! That would definitely put that ranch flavor just over the top to where it should be!

This one, I just chopped all the ingredients, and cooked it all in one pan! It does take a while if you leave the potatoes large… they take a while to soften… but this dish was nice, fresh, and filling. And… if you’re like me… you always have these ingredients in your fridge and/or pantry! WIN!! Especially since I am due to go grocery shopping in 2 days, so I’m running low on recipe ingredients! Especially since I’ve gone “off my meal plan” a lot this week! Oops!

So, here’s the Creamy Ranch Style Chicken and Potatoes

Directions:

Start by chopping all of your veggies. (I did not peel my potatoes, but you may if you prefer). Then, melt your butter in a large skillet. Add the potatoes, onions, carrots and the chicken broth. Put a lid on and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the potatoes start to soften. Remove the lid and add the chicken and the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, olive oil, and dill. Replace the lid and let simmer until chicken is cooked through. This will take 5-8 minutes. Remove the lid and stir. Add the chopped parsley and remove from heat. Slowly stir in the heavy cream until everything is well coated with the seasonings and cream, and serve in immediately. Top with a bit of extra parsley and some parmesan cheese!

This is such a light and fresh dish. I just love the fresh parsley and that dill… it just adds a “clean-ness” to a dish.

Try this one for sure!
