Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Chicken

This is one of the most popular recipes on Pinterest - ever. 

Of course, over there it is called Crack Chicken. Because anything with bacon and a package of ranch mix has to be called Crack.  I don't like it, but here I am saying it anyway.  Don't be afraid to try this recipe because you want to be different than everyone else (I was), or feel like you are promoting addiction (I HAD to change the name). This chicken really actually is very very good. It is insane how easy it is. And if you don't want to eat it on sandwiches, you can use inside enchiladas, on chicken salad, for tacos, on top of rice...  the list is almost impossibly long. 


2 lbs boneless chicken breasts
2 (8 oz) blocks cream cheese
2 (1 oz) packets dry Ranch seasoning
8 oz bacon, cooked crisply and crumbled

In a slow cooker combine place chicken, cream cheese, and Ranch seasoning.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours, until chicken shreds easily.

Once chicken shreds stir with a large fork or spoon, so the chicken shreds and all the ingredients combine.

Add in crumbled bacon and stir to incorporate.

Serve warm.
