Bacon Ranch Slowcooker Chicken

Copy-pasted from this blog: We’ll like unhealthify it. LOL

Bacon Ranch Slowcooker Chicken
4 Servings

2 butterball turkey bacon strips, cooked and shredded
1 tsp minced garlic
1 package ranch dressing mix

1 cup fat-free sour cream

8 oz. pasta (I used rigatoni)

Combine the first five ingredients. Place chicken in slowcooker and pour sauce over the top. Cook on high for 3.5 hours. Serve over hot noodles.

Review: This tasted like it was SO bad for me! I loved how creamy it came out – it almost tasted cheesy even though I didn’t have cheese. I’m going to make this again immediately – wonderful comfort food! Edited to add 9/20/11: I’ve gathered some feedback via Pinterest and wanted to share: one reviewer mentioned that unless you really like ranch, the ranch flavor could be a bit overwhelming – she suggested not using the entire packet. Another mentioned that for them it was too salty, so using less of the packet may make a difference. We love it as is, but I saw these and thought they may help! And please, if you try it and have recommendations for making it better/changes for next time, feel free to post in the comments below. Thanks!

My own notes: Only 2 bacon strips? Craziness. Use the cream of mix recipe. Regular sour cream. GF pasta.

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

Ingredients

–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

Directions

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.
