  • Don’t overcook the chicken! It will become dry and stringy. Check for doneness after 6 hours on low and adjust cooking time as needed.
  • Add a splash of chicken broth or water to the slow cooker if the mixture seems too dry.
  • For a kick of spice, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the ranch seasoning mix.
  • Get creative with the toppings! Experiment with different cheeses, herbs, or even hot sauce.
