Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Garlic Chicken – I made up some freezer meals and ended up with this. It’s similar to Crock Pot Garlic Ranch Chicken, except, well, BACON. There are only 6 ingredients but tons of delicious flavor.
Some people don’t like to freeze milk or mayonnaise, so you could always add those later when you put the chicken in the Crock Pot. I’m too lazy for that (ha!) so I put it all in the freezer bag.
You can always make a bunch of these at once; make one right away and freeze the extras.
Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Garlic Chicken Recipe
WHAT YOU NEED:

- 2 oz. crumbled bacon bits
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 c. mayonnaise
- 1 c. milk
WHAT YOU DO:
To Freeze — Combine all ingredients in a gallon freezer bag. Label with date and instructions. Thaw and cook.
To Prepare Right Away — Combine all ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low 6-8 hours (or high 4-6 hours).
P.S. I recently discovered these at Trader Joe’s. They make fresh garlic so easy; you just open the packets and chop! No annoying papery peels. They are in the refrigerated section, with the produce, hanging down in a row on little hooks. Love ’em!
