Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Chicken

  • Cooking Time:

    6-7 hours
  • Servings:

Ingredients

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
4 Slices of Bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (1 oz.) package hidden valley ranch dressing mix
8 oz. Cream Cheese
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1 c. Chicken Broth
Last 30 minutes:
1 c. Sour Cream



Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Chicken is a favorite with our Facebook Friends. I am sure you will enjoy as well.

  1. Place chicken breasts or thighs in a 5-6 quart slow cooker and pour broth over top.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the crumbled bacon, salt & pepper, garlic, ranch dressing mix and softened cream cheese.
  3. Pour mixture over the chicken.
  4. Cover. Cook for 6-7 hours on LOW.
  5. When done, remove chicken and shred with two forks.
  6. Return chicken back to the slow cooker after shredding, stir in sour cream and cook for additional 30 minutes to warm through again.

Serve over prepared rice, pasta or your favorite starch. For a healthier dish, serve over spaghetti squash! YUM!

Dumb question, but does the chicken need to be cooked before putting it into the crock or can it go in raw?

Making this for dinner tonight… Do you have to stir it at all or just let it cook and then mix it together when you shred the chicken?

This a GREAT dish! I love that it literally takes 5 minutes to mix everything together and dump it in the crockpot. I severed it with some garlic mashed potatoes and carrots. This is a perfect fall and winter YUMMY meal.
Thanks for the recipe.

Made tonight – easy to do, but way too salty. I used the Healthy Request cream of chicken soup, with reduced fat and sodium, but it was still too salty from the ranch dressing mix. May try making my own ranch dressing mix and cutting the salt back. The garlic was a little overpowering, but I like garlic. Couldn’t even taste the bacon. I also used light sour cream and cut the calories almost in half.

Do you cook the bacon before putting it in the crockpot, with the rest if ingredients?

I need a meal tonight in about 6 hours. Is it okay to cook on high instead?

Destiny
Guest

Couple questions please. Sounds great and would love to try.
What kind of soup and how much?
How much sour cream?
Would be making for only 2 people so probably only use 2-3 chicken breasts.
Thanks

Thanks!

Meagan

In the recipe it lists
Last 30 minutes
Cream cheese

Then in the directions is says to put the cream,cheese in the beginning and the sour cream in at the end. Which way is it supposed to be?

Barbara
Guest

Thanks for the correction on the cream cheese/sour cream. i noticed that in the post on FB and also asked. I have another recipe that you put the cream cheese in at the end so wanted to be sure. Can’t wait to try this one! Will print this one out now with correct info! THANKS!
