Ranchiyaki Chicken

Chicken, cheese, bacon, ranch dressing.. how many of my favorite things can be crammed into one dish? This little bit of wonder was nabbed from here: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/06/crockpot-bacon-and-cheese-chicken.html


–2 T olive oil
–4-6 chicken breast halves, or equivalent bird pieces
–12 pieces cooked and crumbled bacon
–1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
–1/2 cup Ranch salad dressing
–1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Put the 2 tablespoons of olive oil into the bottom of your crock and spread it around.
Put the chicken in the crock on top of the oil.
In a small bowl, combine the teriyaki sauce and the ranch dressing. I dislike teriyaki sauce, but this tastes great. Scientific proof that, with enough ranch, ANYTHING can taste good.
Pour sauce over the top of the chicken. Add the shredded cheese and the crumbled bacon to the crock, getting between the chicken pieces, if you can.
Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4. The cooking time will depend on how thick your chicken pieces are, and if they are fresh or frozen.

Other Tips
Put half the cheese in at the start, half on during the last half hour or so.
Serve with potatoes and use the sauce on top of those.
