Creamy Crock Pot Ranch Cheddar Chicken

Yum, yum, and yum! That is all I have to say about this dish! Creamy goodness and low cal. Doesn't get much better than that. I served mine with egg noodles but this dish would go great over rice or even as a filling for tacos. We will be having this one again soon!

Creamy Crock Pot Ranch Cheddar Chicken
Serves 4
Cal 285, Fat 12.7g, Carbs 6.2, Fiber 0g, Protein 31.5

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup fat free chicken broth
4 tsp. ranch seasoning (I like Hidden Valley)
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened (I used weight watchers)
3/4 cup reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup crumbled bacon bits

Arrange chicken in a single layer in bottom of crock pot. Sprinkle ranch seasoning over the chicken. Add in your chicken broth and cream cheese. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. About 30 minutes before serving top with shredded cheddar and bacon bits. Serve over hot noodles or rice. Enjoy!

  5. Yummy! Thank you!!!-sherry

  6. Is there a way to cook this on high? Just because I wont be able to set it 4 hours before we eat, and I dont want it to overcook.

  7. Sure. I would increase the chicken broth and use 2 cups instead of one, to make sure the chicken doesn't dry out.

  8. Mine is WAY to watery...what did I do wrong???

  9. Did you use frozen chicken? That would make it watery.

  10. This wasn't good. The cream cheese should be incorporated into the broth before putting in the crockpot, or as I suspected it turned into a curdled looking mess. I doubled the sauce part and added a whole packet of the dressing mix. Still it tasted bland. I won't be making this again.

    1. I am making this tonight and as I was reading the recipe I wondered if I should mix the cream cheese in with the broth. Your comment definitely helped me make that decision. I will let you know how it turns out. I'm going to put more ranch in it too. Maybe 1 1/2 packs.

  11. I made this tonight and I did a few things different and it was a hit with everyone (family of 4). I mixed my cream cheese in my broth with my hand held beaters. I also used 1 1/2 envelopes of ranch mix. It was the perfect combination! I put the chicken in the crockpot, sprinkled the ranch on the chicken and left it sit for about 2 hours to soak in some of the ranch flavor. My personal opinion, you don't need the bacon bits. I think I would prefer it without. But doing it the way I mentioned made it very tasty and I will be making it again.


I'd love to hear from you. Please leave your comments below.
