  • 2 huge boneless skinless chicken breasts or 4 small ones
  • 1 block of cream cheese perfectly fine to use the reduced fat kind or the Neufchatel –both will have less fat.
  • 1 packet of Ranch Dressing seasoning
  • 1 packet of Taco seasoning – any spice level
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional but does make it more tasty!
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper


  • Cut the raw chicken breasts into chicken nugget sized chunks and place in a standard sized crockpot with the other ingredients.
  • Turn the crockpot on low, put the lid on and come back in 6-8 hours.
  • About 20 minutes before serving, stir the ingredients really well – if it seems a little dry, you can add some milk to thin back out. Serve over rice, in a taco shell, in a flour tortilla or over pasta.


Easy, throw it in the crockpot, come back to supper.
