Ranch Seasoning


  • Add chicken to slow cooker and cover with seasoning. Top with cream cheese. Use the back of a spoon to smear the cream cheese over the meat.
  • Cover the slow cooker with a lid. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH 3-4 hours.
  • Once cooking time finishes, shred the chicken by using two forks and pulling the meat apart. Remove bones if needed. Stir well and thoroughly coat the chicken with sauce.
  • Fry bacon in a pan over medium heat on the stove. Remove and chop or crumble into small pieces. Cover the chicken with bacon and shredded cheese. Put the lid back on and continue cooking on HIGH for 15 minutes until cheese melts.
  • Remove from heat. Mix bacon and cheese into the chicken or serve as is with them resting on top. Garnish with a tablespoon or two of fresh parsley if desired!


The homemade Ranch seasoning mix is calculated for this one recipe. You'll use all of it for seasoning the chicken.
