I have been so intrigued by this Crack Chicken recipe that has been floating around!  What could be better than shredded chicken mixed with cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, cheddar cheese, and bacon?

I went a little rouge with my recipe and I am not using a ranch dressing mix packet.  It’s not something I keep in my house but I do keep a slew of dried herbs and spices.

So for this crack chicken recipe I used some delicious, flavorful spices and herbs to bring that ranch flavor we have come to know and love!

SLOW COOKER CRACK CHICKEN

SLOW COOKER CRACK CHICKEN

To make this scrumptious crack chicken recipe in the slow cooker, you would add the chicken (I love the chicken from Butcherbox), half a cup of chicken broth, and all of the spices to the slow cooker.  Cook on high for 3 hours, or low for 6 hours.  When the chicken is finished, shred with 2 forks, then mix in the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and the crumbled bacon.

I love to cook my bacon in the oven…have you tried it?  Here is my tutorial for how to cook bacon in the oven.

INSTANT POT CRACK CHICKEN

To make this simply delicious crack chicken in the Instant Pot, add half a cup of chicken broth, the chicken breast, and the spices to the instant pot.  Set the pot to 8 minutes high pressure, followed by a 10 minute natural pressure release.  Remove the chicken from the pot and all but 1/2 cup of the liquid.  Return the chicken to the pot and shred with 2 forks.  Stir in the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and the bacon.

CRACK CHICKEN DIP

To keep this low carb, you can just eat it with a spoon, on top of a salad, or you can eat it as a dip!  I love it with veggie sticks like bell pepper, cucumber and carrots.  You could also make some low carb tortilla chips.

    I could not find how many carbs and fat grams were in a serving in this recipe. Plus protein.
