Slow Cooker Bacon & Cheese Chicken

First thing first, grab a napkin because you are going to drool. This was amazing! Bacon & Cheese Chicken but that’s not all. This is full flavor, full-calorie, fair warning now, and just amazing. There wasn’t a crumb of this left in my house.

Normally when I make something using a homemade recipe in the recipe I am sharing, I share it all. I use our+ homemade steak saucebut you can use any steak sauce.

How to make Slow Cooker Bacon & Cheese Chicken:

I know this seems like an odd combination of flavors and I am not a big fan of ranch dressing either normally. But this was seriously amazing.

Place your chicken in your slow cooker, try to not layer them. If you layer them, they won’t get as much of the flavor on them and you want that flavor. That’s why I use my large 8-quart slow cooker for this recipe.

Yes, you pour the sauce over the chicken breast, but I’m willing to bet that you figured that much out already. I’m sharing the above picture because I think it’s pretty, marbled like that.

Once your chicken has been cooking for 3-5 hrs on high or 7-8 on low, it looks like that. Not so pretty anymore, but smelling amazing!

About 15-20 minutes before you are planning to eat, top with cheese, and then some crumbled bacon. I love the Hormel Real Bacon Bits… Blake must always have them on hand.

Are you drooling yet?

I know I have been while typing this. This is Blake’s favorite meal, as it combines most of his favorite foods: ranch, cheese, and bacon.

These are not my favorite foods, out of those three I only really like bacon. But this chicken is delicious, moist, and full of flavor, just don’t enjoy too much of it if you are watching what you eat, or attempting to eat healthier!
