Slow Cooker Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches

These Slow Cooker Chicken Bacon and Ranch Sandwiches are widely known as Crack Chicken around the web. However that’s not the term I’d like to use which is why they get another title. This chicken recipe is surely a delicious one and couldn’t be any easier to make!

There’s not much process needed, in order to make these Chicken Bacon and Ranch Sandwiches. It just all gets dumped in the crockpot, with bacon being added last. The chicken cooks down to fork tenderness and the cream cheese creates an ultra cream sauce to indulge in! I’ve already made this twice within a 2-week mark, you’ll see why once you try this!

Q&A

Why is it called Crack Chicken?

The internet refers this chicken, bacon and ranch combo “crack chicken,” which I’am not fond of. In addition to that, wiki doesn’t even dedicate a post for this kind of title, but how google can? Don’t know. I will however, say this chicken recipe is very delicious!

Is Chicken Bacon and Ranch Keto Friendly?

Yes, if you skip the bread! A keto diet is a very low carb diet with a high-fat in take, so bread must be omitted, however cheese and lots of cheese is safe.

Can you use Ranch Dressing instead of dry mix?

Absolutely! In fact, our White Chicken Chili uses creamy ranch dressing rather than the packet, which most recipes call for.

How much Ranch Dressing do I use for a packet of Dry Ranch Mix?

Use 1/3 cup of prepared Ranch Dressing for every 1 ounce packet of dry Ranch Mix.

Instant Pot Instructions:

To make this Chicken in the instant pot follow these instructions:

  1. Pour 2/3 cups of water to the instant pot. Add the chicken breasts, cream cheese, colby, spices and ranch mix. Cover and seal the vent.
  2. Select the Pressure Cook button and cook over high pressure for 45 minutes. Allow instant pot to depressurize automatically for 10 minutes, before opening.
  3. Shredded and mix all together.
