Cornbread Chicken Recipe – Fix-It and Forget-It Slow Cooker Magic

I received the following book below for review. All opinions are my own. 

One thing that I have been collecting for years is cookbooks. I have so many and I love each and every one of them. I recently received a new cookbook to review called Fit-It and Forget It Slow Cooker Magic that has 550 recipes that you can make in your slow cooker.


I LOVE this cookbook because I really enjoy using my slow cooker and this book has a ton of recipes that I can’t wait to try. There are some pictures in the cookbook but not many. There are recipes for appetizers, breads, soups, main dishes, desserts and more!

The first recipe I had to make was the Cornbread Chicken Recipe. This is a recipe that only required but a few ingredients and came out delicious. I use chicken with many dinners and the family said that this was their new favorite.

Cornbread Chicken - Made in Slow Cooker

This recipe only needs a handful of ingredients. Some chicken breasts, cornbread mix, package of dry Ranch Dressing mix, milk and some vegetable oil. In 4 hours you have some delicious chicken with a sweet ranch flavor.

Here is the recipe from the cookbook. Although the recipe suggests chicken thighs, I used chicken breasts instead.

Cornbread Chicken Recipe – Fix-It and Forget-It Slow Cooker Magic


  • 8 1/2- oz. package cornbread mix
  • 1 envelope dry ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1-2 Tbsp. oil


  1. Grease interior of slow-cooker crock.
  2. In large resealable plastic bag combine cornbread mix and salad dressing mix.
  3. Pour milk into shallow bowl.
  4. Dip thighs, one at a time in milk, then place in bag with dry mixes and shake to coat.
  5. Place thighs in slow cooker. If you have to create a second later, stagger them so they don't completely overlap.
  6. Drizzle each with a bit of oil, lifting the top layer to drizzle the first layer, too.
  7. Cover. Cook on Low for 4 hours, or until instant-read meat thermometer registers 160° - 165°when inserted in thighs.
  8. If you wish, place the thighs on a rimmed baking sheet and run under the broiler to allow chicken to brown. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn.

This is just one of many recipes that I will be making from my new Fix-It and Forget-It Slow Cooker Magic: 550 Amazing Everyday Recipes cookbook!
