Adapted from thecozycook.com
Melt the butter on the bottom of the crock pot.
Add all of the vegetables on top and stir to coat with the butter.
Salt/Pepper the diced chicken as desired and add to the crock pot.
Mix together the soup, milk, sour cream, thyme and ranch dressing mix. Pour on top of the chicken. (optional - add frozen baby peas the last hour.)
Cover the crock pot and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 6-8.
(If the chicken is cut up it should not take much longer even on low than six hours. If partially frozen when cut up, which would make it easier, turn the crock pot on high for first hour or two, then down to low.
Sprinkle with parsley and serve, (preferably with biscuits!)
Note: If soup seems thin, the last hour, add 2 tbsp corn starch to half a cup of chicken stock, stir, and add to the soup. Continue cooking for one hour.
