Also known as “Crack Chicken” because of how addictive this stuff is, this recipe for Crock-Pot Bacon Cheddar Ranch Chicken is easy to make and makes a great sandwich, wrap or eaten plain.
Slow Cooker Bacon Cheddar Ranch Chicken
Chicken breasts are cooked in chicken broth and ranch dressing mix (use our Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix) until cooked. Then the chicken is shredded and cream cheese, cooked and crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese is added and allowed to cook just a few more minutes until the cheese is melted.
The result is a super tasty chicken dish that is often called “crack chicken” because of how addictive it is.
As a side note I don’t take lightly to calling food dishes “crack” because drug addictions are real and I have people in my family I love that struggle with drug addiction.
But, this chicken recipe is REALLY good and super versatile to use or make ahead. My husband is a fan. My kids are a fan. And I think you will be a fan too when you give this recipe a try!
