- 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened

- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 4-6 slices cooked and crumbled bacon

- In a bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese and ranch dressing mix until well combined.
- Spread the cream cheese mixture over the chicken breasts in the slow cooker.

- Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
- About 30 minutes before serving, shred the chicken using two forks. It should be easy to shred due to the creamy texture.
