Chicken Bacon Ranch Chili

I love making Chili and I am always looking for new variations. I knew that this Chili recipe would be a big hit with the family. You can't go wrong with chicken and bacon. This was simple to prepare and delicious. I did change up the recipe a bit and I cooked mine in the crock pot. I'll be making this again soon!

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups crushed tomatoes
1 can great northern beans, drained
2 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 packet ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon (I used bacon bits)
ranch dressing (I used reduced fat)
tortilla chips or strips
shredded cheese, optional (I used shredded white cheddar)

Arrange chicken in the bottom of your crock pot. Season the chicken with chili powder, cumin, and dry ranch packet, Add chicken stock, crushed tomatoes, beans, and garlic. Stir. Cook on low 4-6 hours or on high 2-4. During the last 30 minutes of cooking remove chicken and shred. Return to crock pot along with crumbled bacon. Spoon chili into bowl and garnish with tortilla chips, cheese, and drizzle with ranch dressing. Enjoy!
