How To Make Our Easy Baked Crack Chicken Recipe:
Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees.
Then, get out a 9×13 inch baking pan and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
Next, use the tenderizer to pound chicken breasts until they are about ¼ of an inch thick.
Try and make sure the chicken breasts are about the same thickness so they finish baking at the same time.
Now, place the chicken in a single layer in the baking pan and season them with salt and pepper. You can also add onion powder or garlic powder if you want.
Then, in a medium mixing bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, half of the shredded sharp cheddar cheese, half of the bacon crumbles, and the whole packet of dry ranch dressing mix.
Once that is done, spread the cream cheese mixture over top of the chicken breast evenly.
Then take the rest of the shredded cheddar cheese and sprinkle it over top of chicken breasts.
Now, place the baking pan in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken has fully cooked.
Once the chicken is done baking, pull it out and top it off with the remaining bacon crumbles, and green onion and enjoy!
