This Crockpot Ranch Chicken (Crack Chicken) is here to make dinnertime magic. Throw it in the slow cooker in the morning and have a 5-star dinner ready for the family when you get home. Keto, Gluten-Free and can be tailored to dairy-free. 

  • Total Time: 7 hours and 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 2.5 pounds chicken breast (trim excess fat)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 3 tablespoons of my Homemade Ranch Seasoning*
  • 16 oz. cream cheese*
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 6 sliced cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions


  1. Add the chicken breasts, minced garlic, diced onions, chicken broth, and ranch seasoning to the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours without opening the lid.  (This is optional, but I like to saute the garlic and diced onions with a tablespoon of ghee before adding to the crockpot).
  2. Shred the chicken with two forks and add in the cream cheese and shredded cheese. Mix together with a spoon and add the lid back on for another 20 minutes. 
  3. Sprinkle with the chopped bacon and green onions. Enjoy!
