How to Make Keto Crockpot Crack Chicken

Chicken Breasts in a Crockpot with Chicken Broth

You’ll need about 2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs.

Place these in your crockpot.

Then, cover the chicken with your Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning packet and chicken broth. 

Now you just let it cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

After the cook time has ended, shred the chicken with two forks.

Then, cut your Philadelphia Cream Cheese into pieces.

Now, add the cream cheese, bacon and shredded cheddar to the chicken in the crockpot and stir.

Cover the crock pot again, and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes, until the cream cheese has melted.

I stirred mine after about 3-5 minutes, and it helped the chunks of cream cheese melt faster.

Then I just topped each bowl with a little extra bacon and cheese!

It’s so easy to make and delicious!!

How long do you cook the chicken bacon ranch in the crockpot? 

The main thing is you want the slow cooker to cook the chicken breast. We do 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

How can you serve this chicken bacon ranch crockpot recipe?

You can serve it by itself like I do, or you can put it on lettuce, a roll (if you’re not keto), or serve it as a dip. 

You can also serve a vegetable as a side to this low carb ranch chicken!
