Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 TBSP of ranch seasoning
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

Prepping the Crockpot Crack Chicken Sandwiches

This recipe takes almost no prep work and that’s one of the reasons I love it for an easy dinner. To make it just chop up an onion and gather the seasonings listed above.

Then you’re just going to trim any excess fat and unidentifiable pieces off of your chicken breast and grab your slow cooker.

Making the Crockpot Crack Chicken Sandwiches

Place one pound of chicken breast into the bottom of the crockpot along with a diced onion. Next, add in salt, pepper, paprika, and ranch seasoning along with a tablespoon of minced garlic.

Chicken and Seasonings

To finish up just pour in half a cup of chicken broth, throw on the lid and let it cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Once the chicken is cooked through you will be able to shred it up with a hand mixer or a couple of forks. Add in an 8 ounce block of cream cheese and a cup of shredded cheddar.

Shredded Chicken

Then place the lid back on for about 30 more minutes for that cheese to melt.

Serving the Crockpot Crack Chicken Sandwiches

Once the cheese has melted just mix everything together and dinner is ready to serve. We like to have these with slices of crispy bacon on top, but you can also crumble the bacon and stir it into the mixture if you’d prefer.

Serve with fries, tater tots, a salad, or some roasted broccoli!

Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

  • This recipe can be made in the Crockpot cooking on low for about 4 to 6 hours. You just want to make sure the chicken comes to a temp of 165 degrees.
  • I like to top the sandwiches with bacon to keep it crispy, but you can also stir in crumbled bacon if you prefer.
  • I like to shred my own cheddar cheese for a better texture, but pre-shredded cheese will work as well.
  • My family enjoys these as sandwiches, but the chicken is also great for quesadillas or stuffed into a baked potato.
