Slow Cooker Cheesy Ranch Chicken Sandwich

I love a great Slow Cooker recipe to help me out on a busy day, and they are great for a potluck, or a weeknight supper. This is a great recipe that can actually be used in several different ways. It can be served with the whole chicken for a dinner plate with sides. Add a splash of salsa and some baked tortilla chips and it is a great dip. Today we are making sandwiches, and they are delicious, I am excited to share this recipe with you and sure hope you enjoy it.

Slow Cooker Cheesy Ranch Chicken Sandwich
Miz Helen's Kitchen
Makes 6 to 8 Sandwiches
Ingredients
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 pound bacon
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, chopped (optional)
2- 8ounce blocks of cream cheese, room temperature
dash cayenne (optional)
4 ounce package of dry Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix
1 cup Colby Jack cheese, shredded
6 to 8 Buns
Directions
Preheat the Slow Cooker on high.
Cut the bacon in bite size pieces. 
Cut the chicken breast in half.
Chop the onions, peppers and garlic.
In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon and let it rest.
In the skillet with the rendered bacon fat, saute the chopped bell pepper, onion and garlic.
Place the room temperature cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl and add the bacon and sauteed vegetables. If you are using a chopped jalapeno add it at this time.  Add the dry Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix and the dash of cayenne. Mix until the cheese mixture is completely smooth.
Add the chicken pieces to the preheated slow cooker.
Spread the cheese mixture on top of the chicken.
Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 hours.
Remove the chicken and shred it with two forks.  Place the shredded chicken back into the cooker with the sauce.
Toast the buns before adding the chicken. Add the chicken to the bun, then top with the shredded cheese. 
Put the cheese top half of the chicken bun into the oven and broil for 30 to 45 seconds, just to melt the cheese. WATCH very carefully so you don't burn the cheese.
Top with the top bun and serve.
Enjoy!
