Print this recipe
As soon as the sultry summer air gets its first hints of fall chill, I start looking for slow cooker recipes. The best ones for me are those that require minimal prep work and can cook while I go about my day. This recipe for Crack Chicken is a favorite because it's all that as well as being just the kind of delicious comfort food my family loves.
It’s called Crack Chicken because it's as addictive as crack. To make it, you blanket shredded chicken in a creamy, cheesy sauce that’s studded with bits of bacon and pumped up with ranch seasoning. In addition to being easy and delicious, this recipe has another benefit: Most of the ingredients are things you probably already have on hand, so you can prepare this exceptional dish without even making a special trip to the grocery store.
