Do not let the name fool you; This recipe contains no illegal drugs, although it is likely that those who decide to try it will find themselves addicted. For crockpot users, this recipe is a relatively simple dish for either special events and gatherings, or just a relaxing dinner. It is far from being the healthiest meal, but hey, when has that ever been a priority for comfort foods?

Crack chicken is a rich, creamy delight that will encourage you to come back for seconds.

What You Will Need: 

  • Choice of either chicken breast or thighs (Boneless) 
  • Cream Cheese 
  • Shredded Cheese 
  • Diced Green Onions 
  • Diced Bacon or Bacon Bits
  • Dry Ranch Seasoning 


  • Add the chicken, cream cheese and ranch seasoning. Let cook until the chicken is soft and the cream cheese is melted. This will likely take up to 7 hours on the lowest setting. 
  • Shred the chicken in the crockpot and add the cheese, onions and bacon. Let it continue cooking until the shredded cheese is melted to your liking. 
  • Either serve on buns, use as a dip, or just eat it as is!
