Grilled Ranch Chicken Freezer Meal

This grilled ranch chicken recipe is a really amazing freezer meal. It’s definitely one that I’ll make over and over again – the whole family loves it! I especially love how easy it is to make and how quick I can have it prepped.

Ingredient Substitutions

Some of our readers have made some substitutions with this recipe so we wanted to share them in case you want to do the same!

  • Krisha substituted the mayonnaise with greek yogurt (along with other readers) and said it was very yummy!
  • Jaimy from Holland didn’t have access to Hidden Valley ranch so she substituted it with yogurt salad dressing and said it was lovely.

Those are just a couple of variations, let us know if you have any others so we can include them!

Freezing Your Garlic Ranch Chicken

Preparing this garlic ranch chicken recipe for the freezer is super easy. Simply combine all of the ingredients into a freezer-safe gallon sized bag and you’re good to go.

Grilling Your Chicken

When you’re ready to turn your frozen chicken soup into delicious grilled ranch chicken, take the bag out of the freezer and let your chicken thaw. This will get it nice and marinated and ready for the grill. Once it’s thawed you can throw it on the grill.

Note: For a more tender and juicy chicken, I like to filet it and cook it on low!

If you don’t want to grill your chicken or you simply don’t have time, you can also cook this ranch chicken in a crockpot. If it’s thawed cook it for 4-6 hours on high, if it’s not thawed cook it for 5-6 hours (best results will depend on your crockpot).

Serving Your Garlic Ranch Chicken

This grilled ranch chicken is delicious on its own, but dinner wouldn’t be complete without some sides! I like to serve this recipe with a variety of foods like homemade buttermilk mashed potatoes, rice-a-roni, dinner rolls, honey glazed carrots, potato salad, pea salad, etc. There are a ton of options!
