First thing first. Grab a napkin because you are going to drool. This was amazing! Bacon & Cheese Chicken but that’s not all. This is full flavor, full calorie (fair warning now!) and just amazing. There wasn’t a crumb left in my house. Hubby left the table wanting me to make it again, the girls wanting more.
Slow Cooker Bacon & Cheese Chicken

I know this seems like an odd combination in flavors and I am not a big fan of ranch dressing either.
Place your chicken in your slow cooker, try to not layer them. If you layer them, they won’t get as much of the flavor in/on them.
Yes, you pour the sauce over the chicken breast, but I’m willing to bet that you figured that much out already. I’m sharing the above picture because I think its pretty, marbled like that.
Once your chicken has been cooking for 3-5 hrs on high or 7-8 on low, it looks like that ^. Not so pretty anymore, but smelling amazing! About 15-20 minutes before you are planning to eat, top with cheese, and then some crumbled bacon. I love the Hormel Real Bacon Bits… hubby must always have them on hand.
So, are you drooling yet? I know I have been while typing this. This is Hubby’s favorite meal, as it combines most of his favorite foods: ranch, cheese, bacon. These are not my favorite foods, our of those three I only really like bacon. BUT this chicken is delicious, moist and full of flavor, just don’t enjoy too much of it if you are watching what you eat, or attempting to eat healthier!
