Keto Crack Chicken

July 18, 2018




I seriously don’t know what I would do without my Crock Pot most days. I love being able to buy meat in bulk, freeze and defrost it as desired, throw it in the Crock Pot with some seasoning, and be done. Especially because, as I have said before, you do so much cooking when you are eating healthy.


Keto Crack Chicken is no exception. This is a super easy - and quick - recipe to prepare, and its name should be a dead giveaway on how delicious it is.


This dish has only four ingredients: chicken breasts; cream cheese; bacon; and ranch seasoning. I did have a “DOH!” moment when checking the macros in my Keto Diet App for this recipe. The entry I had been using for my favorite ranch seasoning was wrong and did not include an accurate carb count. So when I discovered one packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning has 16 grams of carbs, I was a little blown away.


Nevertheless, I used 2 full packets of seasoning since this was my first go at Crack Chicken. While delicious, it is higher on the carb count when you use both seasoning packets, so I will most likely try preparing this dish with only one packet next time. I would also like to try adding some jalapeños or green chiles, or maybe even some salsa on top. The sky’s the limit with this recipe!



  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, frozen (about 2 lbs)

  • 2 blocks (8 oz each) cream cheese

  • 2 packets Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning 

  • 8 slices microwave bacon, crumbled 



  • Grease bottom and sides of Crock Pot with olive oil

  • Place frozen chicken breasts in bottom of pan

  • Place both blocks of cream cheese on top of chicken.

  • Sprinkle both seasoning packets on top of cream cheese.

  • Cook on low 8 hours.

  • About 15 minutes before serving, microwave bacon slices.

  • Shred chicken. Crumble bacon in pot and stir thoroughly.
