I use a package of Uncle Dan's Orginal Ranch about 1/2-1 cup of water and and an hour before it's done add about 4oz of cream cheese. It is a little runny....I do Chicken thighs (boneless, skinless) or browned ground turkey.

Thank you anniki!
I googled it and right now as I type it's in the crockpot.

I just threw some things together without too much measuring.

Chicken breast with a little butter & spices
1 pack of uncle dans ranch
Few spoonfuls of sour cream
Chopped onion
1 glove garlic
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Cream cheese
1/2c milk

I mixed All ingredients together and poured over chicken in crock pot. It smells awesome, and I'll serve with rice :)

My throw together recipe was a combination of 2 or 3 different crockpot ranch recipes I came up with on google!! It doesn't seem to be too runny either :-) looking forward to it! My house smells amazing!!
