Tips for Making Crock Pot Chicken Bacon Ranch
- The bacon will not be crisp. If you want it crisper, pan fry it before you put it on the chicken. I would put a about a tablespoon of grease down in the crock pot before putting the chicken in.
- If you use boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts, there could be a lot grease. That also means a LOT of flavor.
- Use your favorite ranch dressing.
- To make this in the oven, cook in a 13X9 pan for 30 minutes and then top off with cheese. Bake another 10 minutes. Make sure chicken reaches 160 degrees.
