  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup ranch seasoning mix or 1 packet of store bought
  • 8 oz cream cheese cubed
  • 1 can 10.5 oz cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup crisp bacon diced
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions


  • Place chicken thighs in a single layer at the bottom of a slow cooker (mine is 7 qt).
  • Sprinkle the top of the chicken with the ranch seasoning, then spread the soup on top then finally distribute the cubed cream cheese on top of it all.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or high 4-5 hours (times can vary--mine was done in 4 hours on high). Do not lift the lid until the minimum time is up.
  • Shred the chicken--this can be done right in the slow cooker using 2 forks. Stir in the bacon then top with the cheese. Cover and cook about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with green onion and serve.
