Crockpot Crack Chicken
This crockpot crack chicken is a fantastic recipe full of creamy, cheesy ingredients that will be a sure crowd pleaser.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 ounce Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix
- 16 ounces cream cheese, cut into cubes
- 8 sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1½ cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- 3 to 4 green onions, chopped
In a small bowl, combine salt, onion powder, garlic powder, dried parsley, and the ranch seasoning mix.
In the crockpot, add the 4 chicken breasts. Sprinkle seasoning mixture over the top of the chicken breasts. Top the seasoning mixture with cream cheese cubes.
Turn the crockpot temperature to low and cover. Let cook 6 to 7 hours, or until chicken shreds easily with a fork.
Once the chicken is done cooking, use two forks to shred the chicken while it is still in the crockpot. Stir the shredded chicken and cream cheese together.
Add 1 cup of cheddar cheese to the chicken mixture and stir to combine.
Top with the remaining shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, and green onions. Cover until the cheese is melted.
Serve and enjoy!
Note: We'd recommend grating your own cheese. Pre-shredded cheese tends to be coated with an anti-caking agent that prevents it from melting well.
Note: If you are on a time crunch, you can cook on high for 3 to 4 hours instead.
Note: This dish can be served over rice, on hoagie rolls, over a baked potato, or as a dip with crackers!
