Total Time: 6 Hours and 10 Minutes


2 Pounds of Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

1 Packet of Ranch Dressing Mix

1 8 oz. Block of Cream Cheese

1/2 Cup of Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled

1 Cup of Gold Creek Farms’ Bacon Chive Cheddar, Shredded

Flour or Corn Taco Sized Tortillas (we used flour for these)

Coleslaw, Sliced Red Onion, and Escabeche for Garnish


In a crockpot, add the chicken, sprinkle with ranch packet, and place cream cheese on top. Cover and cook on low for six hours. Remove lid and shred chicken using two forks.
