Our trips to Florida to see the grandkids are the best. My daughter-in- law made this awesome dinner one night for us. I checked it out on the internet and there were a million recipes for this on-line and they were all about the same, amazing! You can also cook this in a crock-pot for 6-8 hours. Just cook the bacon in your oven.
Insta-pot Crack Chicken
½ pound bacon, chopped into about 1 inch pieces ½ Cup Chicken Broth or water 1 package (1oz.) Original Hidden Valley Seasoning Mix 2 pounds Chicken Breasts 8 ounce Lite Cream Cheese (you can use flavored cream cheese) ½ Cup Shredded Cheese, any type 4 to 5 green onions, sliced
Turn Insta-pot to the Sauté mode, and cook the chopped bacon for 5-7 minutes or until crisp. Scoop out the bacon onto a paper towel, and then wipe out the extra grease from the pan.
Into the pot add chicken broth, ranch seasoning, and chicken. Seal the insta-pot, press manual, and set the timer for 12 minutes. It will take about 7 minutes to reach pressure. When the timer goes off, allow 5 minutes for natural pressure release, and then turn the value to vent to release the rest of the pressure.
Remove the chicken from the pot, and put chicken into an electric stand mixer bowl. Using the mixer on low speed, mix until the chicken is shredded. You can also use 2 forks and shred by hand.
Set the pot back to Sauté and add cream cheese and cooked bacon pieces, stir until combined.
Serve over rice or pasta or on buns as a sandwich.
Top with shredded cheese and chopped green onions. (Mindi likes to add cook the entire pound of diced bacon add half of it to the top with the cheese and green onions.)
