per serving: 416 Calories, 29g Fat, 5g Carbs,29g Protein

  • 1.5 lbs of chicken breast, halved lengthwise
  • 5 slices of cooked thick cut baconšŸ„“, chopped
  • 1 packet of ranch mix(or make your own to save on carbs)
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

1. Place chicken breasts in a crock-pot or instant pot and pour in the chicken broth. Evenly sprinkle the ranch mix over the chicken.

2. If using an instant pot, set to pressure cook for 15 minutes. If using a crock-pot cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.

3. When the chicken is almost done begin the sauce.Ā  In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat.Ā  Then add in the heavy whipping cream and spices. Allow to cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.Ā  Then add the cheese and allow to cook for 3 minutes stirring occasionally.

4. Finally, place the cooked chicken in a casserole dish and pour the sauce over the chicken. Top with some shredded cheeseĀ  (optional) and the chopped bacon.

5. Place in the oven for 15 minutes at 400Ā°F

To save on dishes you could just plate the chicken and pour the sauce over it. I however like it even more baked in the sauce!
