Slow Cooker Crack Chicken

So my month of Pinterest is going to be more of a staple on here.  I didn’t get around to doing three a week so how about one a week!  Maybe one every other week…we have to be flexible right!

Today I am going to share a SUPER SIMPLE crock-pot recipe I got from

Unlike most recipes I didn’t change anything in this one.  OK maybe I used my homemade ranch dry mix but really I didn’t change anything besides that!  My family LOVED it!
 I cooked up a whole package of bacon a few days earlier.  I chopped it, separated it and stuck it in the freezer.  We used the rest of the frozen bacon for breakfast.  My husband just throws the frozen bacon (which I separated into little packets to make it super easy for him) in the pan with his eggs and easy breakfast too! (There is your 2 for 1 ideas)

Serves: serves 6

2-3 lbs boneless chicken breasts

2 (8 oz) blocks cream cheese

2 (1 oz) packets dry Ranch seasoning

8 oz bacon, cooked crisply and crumbled

  1. In a slow cooker combine place chicken, cream cheese, and Ranch seasoning.
  2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours, until chicken shreds easily.
  3. Once chicken shreds stir with a large fork or spoon, so the chicken shreds and all the ingredients combine.
  4. Add in crumbled bacon and stir to incorporate.
  5. Serve warm.

Pineapple chicken!



My son was bragging about his dinner to his girlfriend over Skype the other night, making her (what he said) jealous. Not so sure my food would make anyone jealous but hey I will take it! (Poor thing has to deal with a boy who eats and eats and eats…oh having boys who can’t stop thinking about food, that is a whole story for another day!)

Anyhoo I started thinking that this recipe is way too easy NOT to share!!
