Slow Cooker Crack Chicken

This Slow Cooker Crack Chicken is Creamy Cheesy Ranch and Bacon Shredded Chicken. It’s perfect on it’s own, on a sandwich, in a tortilla or as a dip!


I know the name is a bit awkward but I promise, I didn’t come up with it.  My Mom found this recipe in one of her 100 cookbooks and if you’re a chicken lover, you’ll love this and it’s super easy.

I have looked up this recipe on the internet and the internet has deemed the combo of Cheese, Ranch seasoning and bacon as “crack”… Crack Bread,Crack Dip… It’s a thing.

Anyhow, the ingredients will transform into a creamy, tasty, shredded chicken that you can use in TONS of ways: Sandwiches, Nachos, Enchiladas (Hello..Crack Enchiladas…how FUN!)… so scoop it onto a bowl of crunchy lettuce and you have yourself Crack Salad. Whhhaattt?

Also, you can add 2 flavored blocks of cream cheese in place of 2 blocks of regular cream cheese.  I have found bacon flavored cream cheese that I will try next.  I haven’t done this just yet but I believe it will be a fun way to experiment with this recipe.  I will start out using one flavored cream cheese and one plain cream cheese so I can be safe and not over do the taste.

When I make sandwiches, I top it with a bit more cheddar and place it under the broiler for a beat. Because more cheese is more cheese and we like it like that.
