How to Make Crockpot Crack Chicken

Sprinkle the ranch dressing mix over the top of the chicken.
Place blocks of cream cheese on top.
Cover the crockpot with the lid and set to “low” cooking setting.
Cook for 6 hours until the chicken is tender and shreds easily with a fork.
Shred the chicken with 2 forks. This can be done in the crockpot or on a plate. Now give it a good stir until the cream cheese and shredded chicken are mixed well.

Cook bacon until crispy. Then crumble into small pieces.
Add crumbled bacon and chopped green onions and stir until combined.
Top with a layer of shredded cheese. Place the lid back on the crockpot and set the cooking setting to “low” or “warm.” Allow the cheese to melt.
