This Crock Pot Crack Chicken Recipe will be a family favorite. Cream cheese makes it super creamy. It’s an easy dinner, that’s so yummy!
Let me start out by answering the question going through your mind right now. Why is it called crack chicken?? Well, because this chicken is addicting! Seriously! My kids were licking their plates clean afterwards (well, trying to at least before I stopped them…..that’s just weird, right?!). Some may not like the name, I get that for sure, but since it is one of those recipes passed down for years, I didn’t find it right to change it!
Creamy shredded chicken and bacon combined into a dish that is great on sandwiches, pastas, potatoes, and more!
A few weeks ago, I was having one of those crazy busy summer days and knew that if I didn’t something in my slow cooker that morning, dinner would be “take out” that night. Luckily, I had all the ingredients on hand for this chicken and it took less than 5 minutes to put together! Using only 4 ingredients, this meal is budget friendly as well!
After being out all day and coming home, not only did our house smell amazing, but dinner was ready!! I served ours as sandwiches, but this chicken would also be great over pasta, rice, or by itself!!
The cream cheese in this helps make the chicken rich and creamy! Add in the bacon (whether using bacon bits or crumbled bacon) and you have an incredible flavor!
If you want to add a bit of heat to the dish, you can even use jalapeno bacon! It adds just enough heat to kick it up a few notches, but not quite enough to cause an explosion in your mouth, haha!
However you choose to serve this, you’ll love it!! In fact, leftovers the next day were just as tasty served cold, so serve it as you desire because the possibilities are endless!
