Ingredients

Instructions

  • To brown the chicken (optional): if your crockpot has a saute setting, spray the inside with cooking spray and set to saute. If your crockpot doesn't have a saute setting, spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. 
  • Blot the chicken dry with a paper towel and add to the crockpot or skillet. Cook for 3 - 5 minutes or until the chicken is lightly browned. Turn and repeat on the other side. 
  • If using a skillet to brown the chicken, transfer the chicken breasts to the crockpot after browning. 
  • Add the chicken stock, cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, and pepper. Cover and cook on low heat for 4 hours or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165 F (74 C). 
  • When the chicken is cooked, remove the chicken from the crockpot and whisk the sauce until it is smooth. For a thicker sauce, return the crockpot to the saute setting (high if possible) and cook, whisking frequently for 5 to 10 minutes. 
  • If your crockpot doesn't have a saute setting, pour the sauce into a saucepan and heat over medium-high heat, whisking frequently until the sauce thickens to the desired consistency. 
  • Garnish with the bacon and sliced green onions before serving if desired.
