  • 2 lbs Chicken Breast, (about 4 boneless/skinless breasts)
  • 1 (1 oz) pkg Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 1/2 tsp Dill Weed, dried
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 3 tsp Parsley, chopped (dried or fresh)
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 16 oz Cream Cheese (2 of the 8 oz blocks)
  • 1/4 cup Water

To Finish

  • 1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 7 slices Thick Cut Bacon, cooked & chopped
  • 3 Green Onions, chopped


  1. Spray the crock with cooking spray.

  2. Add the chicken breasts.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the ranch dressing mix, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, parsley, and pepper. Sprinkle over the chicken

  4. Add the cream cheese and the water.

  5. Place the lid on and cook on Low for 2-3 hours, or until the chicken is done and shreddable.

  6. Use two forks to shred the chicken right in the crock.

  7. Add the cheddar cheese, cooked bacon pieces, and the green onion. Stir. It might seem a little wet, but as you shred and as it cools it will thicken up nicely.

  8. Serve on buns, as a dip, or any way you like!
