Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Chicken

  • Cooking Time:

    6–7 hours
  • Servings:

    4–6

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!

Hap­py Crock­ing!

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.

Gar­lic

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

Hap­py New Year! I have this cook­ing right now and the fla­vor is deli­cious (had to sneak a taste). The con­sis­ten­cy us too watery and not as creamy as I expect­ed. Any sug­ges­tions??
Thanks!

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?
