How to Make Sour Cream Chicken Breasts in the Crockpot

Sauce for Sour Cream Chicken Breasts
The sauce for this crockpot chicken breasts recipe is very simple. You just whip together the ranch seasoning, cream of celery soup and the sour cream.
And the sauce is freezer friendly too. We’re going to pour it into its own little baggie. Why? Because occasionally, ingredients will separate when frozen then defrosted.
BUT that’s not a big issue. Since you’re putting it in its own little baggie, all you need to do is knead the bag a little bit and the sauce will remix.
Homemade Ingredients for Sour Cream Chicken
Quick and easy slow cooker recipes are awesome. And when you combine it with freezer cooking, you never have to worry about having a home cooked meal.
But there are times when you have a little extra time. Or dietary restrictions. And you need (or want) to make your ingredients from scratch.
And you can make BOTH the ranch seasoning AND the cream of celery soup from scratch. Both are very simple to prepare.
Even better, the homemade ranch seasoning can be stored in an air-tight container for many months. If humidity is high in your area, just fold up a piece of paper towel and toss it in the canister. This will help absorb any excess moisture. And it will keep your homemade ranch seasoning as a powder, instead of a block 😊
So, 2 tablespoons of your homemade ranch seasoning will equal a packet you purchase in the store.
2 tble homemade = 1 purchased packet
And that homemade cream of celery…well, it’s freezer friendly. So you can make up quite a lot, freeze and use as you need it.
So, making your own homemade ingredients is very easy on this one. No more than 10 minutes to make both!
Then you place the chicken breast in the crockpot (butter it lightly first), toss on the diced celery and pour the sauce over the top.
