Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORTH IT!!!! This Slow Cooker Crack Chicken recipe is great. It is worth the time it takes to make it and we opted to put it in the Hawaiian Dinner Rolls to make sliders. It is great in tortilla (shells).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Party Favorite So easy. Four ingredients. Set it and forget it. Hawaiian rolls or small brioche rolls are excellent. I sliced up a stalk of celery to add crunch to each slider before serving. Everyone LOVED them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Pot Lucks This is so easy to make and take to parties. I bring the whole slow cooker and a platter of Hawaiian buns, a ramekin of sliced jalapenos and a bottle of hot sauce. People ask me for the recipe and I just send them a link to it. Works out perfectly for everyone.

Date published: 2022-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a hit! Anytime you have the crack chicken, whether as a slider or dip or whatever, it’s a winner! You can even put it on salad. I’ve been making it for a long time. I did try it with the zesty ranch…not a fan.
