This Gluten-Free Crock Pot Recipe for Bacon Mushroom Ranch Chicken and Pasta. Sounds pretty amazing right?
There is nothing better than a Ranch Crock Pot Chicken recipe.
There are no two ways about it; creating gluten-free meals has become easier as time goes on. This recipe is all about eating gluten-free and gluten-free pasta is an excellent alternative to wheat pasta.
The real question was; will my kids eat the Ranch Crockpot Chicken? We have a family member that is gluten-intolerant, so I do need a good recipe in my back pocket for the occasions that I want to feed her pasta.
The reason that I wanted to make the classic Ranch Crockpot Chicken is that I wanted to take a combination that is one of the most beloved by busy families everywhere, creamy ranch and chicken in the crockpot, and turn it into a fabulous gluten-free dish. The sauce and chicken cook all day while you are gone, and then you simply add the pasta when you are ready to eat.
May is Celiac Awareness Month and statistics show that more than 330,000 Canadians are believed to be affected by celiac disease. Almost everyone knows someone that has a gluten intolerance, and it’s a great new way to inspire recipes and innovation when it comes to eating gluten-free.
The pasta was a hit.
If you make sure that all of the other ingredients are gluten-free (the ranch mix, the mushroom soup, and the bacon) then you have one amazing meal that is perfect for your #GlutenFreeFriday. Or any day of the week, really, when you find yourself swamped.
The kids honestly couldn’t even tell. Of course, I waited until the end of the meal to tell them that the pasta was gluten-free, and my daughter raised her eyebrows and said “Er, what? No, it’s not.” So for my picky eater to not have any idea and scarf the pasta down without hesitation means that it’s a winner for us!
I am super excited to have a delicious gluten-free meal that is easy, and fast, not to mention oh-so comfort food delicious. This pasta combines a lot of my favorite flavors!

Happy Cooking everyone!
