  1. Melt the butter on the bottom of the crock pot. Add all of the vegetables on top and stir to coat with the butter.

  2. Salt/Pepper the diced chicken if desired and add to the crock pot.

  3. Mix together the soup, milk, sour cream and ranch dressing mix. Temper the mixture by heating it for 30 seconds in the microwave. Pour on top of the chicken.
