  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 (1-ounce) package Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix
  • 16 ounces cream cheese cut into cubes
  • 8 sliced bacon cooked and crumbled
  • cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 3-4 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 6-7 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!


TIP: 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.
TIP: If you are on a time crunch, you can cook on high for 3-4 hours instead.
TIP: This dish can be served over rice, on hoagie rolls, over a baked potato, or as a dip with crackers!
