  • 4 chicken breasts or 2 butterflies cut in half
  • 1 packet Buttermilk Recipe Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 8 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2 cups shredded mild or sharp cheddar cheese
  • Scallions/green onions about a handful - optional
  • Hamburger Buns


  • In a large crockpot (a four quart -- this one is a staple AND on sale :-D or six quart crock pot like this one that's oddly also marked down will do)
  • Layer the chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot.
  • Next, place your cream cheese on top of the chicken. When it gets warm it will spread just a bit but eventually you'll be mixing it all together with your hand mixer, so no worries that it's just set on top.
  • Sprinkle with the Hidden Valley ranch seasoning packet.
  • Cook on low for six hours.
  • I use my hand mixer for mixing crack chicken. Since it's hot and moist, the chicken shreds perfectly and I don't need to dirty a separate bowl. However, if you're worried about scratching your crock pot, I would definitely remove it into a different bowl before using the mixer in it, or use two forks instead. A hand mixer like this is perfect and reasonably priced. We don't need any fancy tools for this recipe!
  • Once you've shredded the chicken breast, sprinkle the cheese on top, then the bacon.
  • Put the crock pot lid back on for about 15 more minutes or just until the cheese is melted, and lastly add the scallions.
