I found this AMAZING recipe from the "crockpot lady" on her crockpot365 blogspot - also amazing. Anyway, this chicken is ridiculously easy and so versatile. It makes a mean sandwich, delicious wrap,is great served with french fries, or just straight up. You could also place it on a bed of lettuce for a great salad. The recipe helps keep they kitchen tidy and uses less energy by using a slow cooker! My whole family was "humming" when I made this and served it - it's a keeper!
- Place olive oil in the bottom of a slow cooker. Put chicken on top.
- Whisk together dressing and teriyaki sauce; pour over and around chicken.
- Crumble the bacon over the chicken.
- Sprinkle with cheese, cover and cook on low 6-8 hours, depending on how thick your chicken is.
I have had this in the crockpot for almost 3 hours.. The chicken isn't done which is expected but the cheese is already starting to burn.. I knew I should have waited till last minute but I assume when someone writes a recipe that it worked for them! I'm sure it will taste good the next time I do it.. My own way.. So dumb...
SO TASTY! I was admittedly skeptical, as far as the ingredients go, but I KNEW I wanted cheesey, i KNEW i wanted chickeny, and i KNEW i wanted it in my crock. Who would guess teriyaki sauce and ranch dressing (not to mention cheddar cheese!) would meld together so melifluously?! I increased the measuremetns of both the dressing and the sauce (personal preference). I eyeballed the amount of cheese, and waited until the end to add it. Served over buttered garlicky rice, this was perfect, and delicious. Thank you!
It was okay. Hubby and I love all these ingredients on they're own but put together it just didn't mesh for us and the bacon was a bit overpowering to us also. However, this will be a good recipe to play with and see if we can get it to suit our particular taste buds.
