After the cook time has ended, shred the chicken with two forks or use these shredding claws. These are so much easier on the hands and make the shredding job a lot quicker.

When you shred the chicken, it will absorb any leftover liquid.

Silly question I guess but how many servings does this make? I actually made it this afternoon for during the week and its amazing


Just started making this today, I’m sure it will be as yummy as it looks! I am wondering what the serving size it. It says 8 servings is the pot, I can see the nutrients, but how much is each individual serving size?
Thanks!

Love this site, is there a way to subscribe via e-mail ??
Can’t wait to make this crack chicken ! I’ve already put several others on my to make list.


I am so offended you would use a street drug in the name of this receipt ! You obviously have not suffered the heartbreak of addiction in your family or you would not glorify “crack” in this way.


Clearly they call it “crack” chicken meaning it’s addicting. It’s not glorifying a street drug, If you don’t like the name it’s pretty simple…don’t cook it or call it something else. Take your offense elsewhere you sensitive snowflake!


Agreed Travis…. the name is in reference to the fact that once you’ve had it you’ll want it again and again…. Should we not say Crack the whip??? Or Crack an egg simply because the word Crack is in it??? I think not. I am sorry that someone took offense to this. Yes, drug addiction is a very detrimental thing but not enough to lash out at people for the name of a recipe.

Please stop. We all know someone suffering from addiction and if a title to a recipe triggers you then you need therapy. Did you try the recipe or not? Giving it 1 star because of the title and not the taste says more about you than it does the dish.


Agreed! If anything it makes it extra opposite of Keto because of the insulin release associated with maltodextrin MSG and modified food starch! The rest of the recipe sounds tasty and you could just use your own seasonings and keep it keto friendly. Easy fix. Just leave out the ranch.


I was so surprised as to how easy and flavorful this recipe is. This is certainly on my “do-over list”, it’s a keeper.
One question – is your “Nutrition Facts” based on 1 cup servings?

My guess would be 5-6ounces per serving. You have 2 lbs of chicken = 32 ounces. Then add 8 oz of cream cheese and 1/2 cup of shredded cheese is another 2 ounces. So 42 ounces so far without the liquid. 1/2 c of broth is another 4 ounces. So 46 ounces total. Divide 46 ounces by 8 servings would be somewhere between 5 and 6. Not sure if there is any shrinkage of weight due to cooking of the meat or broth. I’m just now cooking this for the first time.

No. Just no. Seriously trying to figure out how to salvage this mush. I followed the recipe to the T. Way too much broth. Way over cooked (and I stopped the slow cooker an hour early). This is just a salty (and I used unsalted broth) paradoxically bland mess of goo.

I could have used these beautiful chicken breasts for schnitzel and I destroyed them. Not happy.

Maybe you were expecting something else? It IS shredded chicken. You could easily use less broth or remove some before mixing in the other ingredients. I made it tonight, and my daughter found it difficult to stop eating – it was so good!


I made this tonight, and it was delicious! And so easy! I planned to use my crockpot, but got home much later than planned and didn’t have time to let it cook for 4 hours. So I used my pressure cooker instead! 15 minutes and I had perfect chicken! Then I switched it to the slow cooker setting to add everything else in. I served this over cauliflower rice with a side of steamed broccoli, and it was a hit! I will be making this again!

What makes this not so keto is the ranch packet. MSG or modified food starch causes increased insulin release, opposite of keto.

Thank you for sharing this recipe…it sounds amazing ! My son-in-law is on the keto diet and it’s hard to find recipes with no carbs . I also love slow cooker recipes and will definitely be making this in the near future ! 🙂
