Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Crack Chicken

I finally got to try this Slow Cooker Crack Chicken recipe. My neighbor told me about this crack chicken, even though she makes her own in her instant pot.

This recipe was created by Shelly from the Cookies and Cups website; you can see her recipe here. I’m very happy to have tried this recipe, the flavours go so well together and marry very well with white rice, which removes a bit of salt.

How to make smoked chicken :
I start with chicken legs instead of breasts. I have the impression that the legs are softer and the dish as a whole is excellent. I also use a single ranch packet to reduce the sodium.

You will need these ingredients:

Chicken thighs
Seasoning mix for farmhouse dressings
Cream cheese
Cheddar Cheese
Cooked bacon
Green onions



How to prepare:

Add the chicken to the slow cooker and top with the ranch packet and cream cheese. That’s all you need to add at this point. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours and do not open the lid during the cooking time.


3 chicken breasts
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
1 packet ranch seasoning
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 slices cheddar cheese
8 hoagie rolls


Add the chicken, cream cheese, ranch seasoning, shredded cheddar cheese and garlic powder to a slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours.
Toast the hoagie rolls, scoop on the chicken and top with cheddar slice and crumbled bacon. More than enough for 8 hoagie rolls! Enjoy!
