1-ounce packet ranch seasoning

2 tablespoons butter sliced into pats

6 pepperoncini peppers or sliced banana peppers

Sprinkle on the au jus mix, and ranch seasoning, then top with butter and pepperoncini.

Cook on low for 3 hours, or on high for 1-1/2 or 2 hours.

Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes, then shred it while it’s still warm.

Serve over mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice. To make sandwiches, serve on rolls or toasted buns with provolone cheese.
