Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Recipe This is a fantastic recipe, can be used in so many ways alone with a salad or a vegetable and as a sandwich like sliders or as a dip or topping for crackers and Cristini

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swell Slider Recipe I love Hidden Ranch Slow Cooker Crack Chicken for Gameday Sliders. This recipe pairs extra well with King's Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Easy dinner I make this when I know I am going to be pressed for time. Put chicken in crackpot before work and takes no time to get it together and served after I get home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but dry This recipe sounded so good! It tasted good but was very dry with just the ingredients listed. I will make it again but will add milk or something else for a moister outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family favorite! So I tweak it a little bit and I think you all will like it much better! I use the 16oz cream cheese but I also add in 2 cans cream of chicken soup and it helps make it not so try like I seen someone mention. I serve this over egg noodles with some green beans on the side! We love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious This was delicious. The only thing is I think it is better as a dip, not a main dish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing special here My boyfriend liked this, but I only ate a few bites. Wasn't a fan of the consistency or the flavor. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either, so I don't have any plans to make this again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the greatest I tried this last week and while it was good it was not delicious. It was a little to dry for me. The flavor was good - need a bit of a more kick- So I added hot sauce to it. Not sure how to help the dryness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A big family hit The whole family loved this creamy chicken. The ranch flavor and cheesy chicken were a big hit with the whole family. It is great in lettuce wraps, rolls or by itself!
