After seeing so many slow cooker crack chicken recipes floating around on Pinterest, I knew I had to make my own….and it totally lived up to its name – so addicting!  I know you’re going to love this new recipe, Friends.

Slow Cooker Crack Chicken Recipe
Does anyone else love looking for new recipes ideas on Pinterest? I noticed a bunch of pins for “crack chicken” and had to find out more.  After comparing a new few recipes I learned that most crack chicken recipes call for four simple ingredients: chicken breasts, dry ranch seasoning, cream cheese, and bacon.  I mean, with those ingredients it’s easy to see why it’s addicting, right??

I decided to give the recipe my own spin by using my homemade dry ranch seasoning mix.  It’s super delicious, healthy, and budget-friendly. (You can see all of my homemade spice mixes and sauces in this blog post.) I also used real bacon bits because I wanted to be able to freeze the recipe without any cooking ahead of time.  If you have leftover bacon or a desire to cook your own – go for it! The olive oil and red wine vinegar add just a bit of liquid while cooking.

The final product was a creamy, flavorful, and simple dinner.  I think this will be a winner with your whole family.  Enjoy!
