Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Chicken

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 6

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried chives
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 6 slices uncured bacon no sugar listed in ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar-jack cheese grated

Instructions

To Cook Immediately

  • Place chicken breasts in the bottom of a slow cooker, taking care to keep them in a single layer if possible.
  • Combine salt, onion powder, chives, parsley, dill, and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle over chicken.
  • Dollop yogurt evenly over chicken, then top each breast with 1 folded piece of bacon. Cook on low 6 hours. Top evenly with cheese, turn to high, and cook 20-30 minutes longer, or until cheese melts.
  • NOTE: If you want to brown the cheese and crisp the top, you can put each chicken breast on a sheet pan or other oven safe dish and broil it for 5-7 minutes.

To Freeze

  • Place chicken breasts in a large zip top freezer bag, taking care to keep them in a single layer if possible.
  • Combine salt, onion powder, chives, parsley, dill, and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle over chicken.
  • Dollop yogurt evenly over chicken, then top each breast with 1 folded piece of bacon. Place bag on a baking sheet and freeze overnight. Once frozen, remove baking sheet.

To Cook After Freezing

  • Remove chicken from freezer bag. Place in slow cooker in a single layer. Cook on low 8 hours or on high 6 hours. Remove chicken to a baking sheet. Broil 5-7 minutes to crisp bacon, optional.
