On a bun. As a dip. In a wrap. On a cracker. It doesn’t matter how you serve this slow cooker creamy bacon chicken, you’re going to love it. Tender, moist chicken. Creamy cheese. Bacon. Ranch dressing flavors. Bacon. Oh, I said that already. I love bacon. There’s no reason that you couldn’t add a bit more bacon to the crockpot. Kinda slip an extra piece or two in for that extra bacon-y flavor.
Slow cooker creamy bacon chicken is mighty darned good as it is. Now, you know me (or well, maybe you don’t) but I like a little kick to my food. I would not be afraid to use jalapeno cream cheese instead of the plain stuff. And I wouldn’t be afraid to add a few squirts of Sriracha or my favorite hot sauce, either. Heck, throw in some diced roasted jalapenos too. You can always make two versions. One nice and mellow and one nice and spicy.
If you want your chicken to have a bit more texture than the shredded version in the recipe, just cut into small cubes instead. Same great taste with a little bit different bite.
This mushroom Asiago chicken dish was the perfect therapy for a Sunday evening. By therapy I mean it was fun to make. A great distraction before going back to work the next day. And it was oh so tasty good. The perfect way to cap off a week and start a new one. It isn’t complicated, but then it isn’t all of of box or can either.
This mushroom Asiago chicken is crazy creamy good. Personally, I wouldn’t hesitate to add a pinch or two of red pepper flake to give it just a bit of a kick. That’s just me, I like a bit of spice in everything. The chicken has a nice buttery flavor and is oh so tender and juicy. I was worried it might dry out or get a bit touch after frying in the flour, but no, it sure didn’t!
I love the nuttiness of Asiago cheese, but there is a limit. There is a such thing as too much for me. So start slow when you add the cheese, tasting as you go, until it is just perfect.
I like to use my good ole trusty Dutch oven to make this chicken and pretty much darned near anything like it on my stovetop. It’s nice and big and sturdy. That extra weight helps it maintain and distribute heat perfectly. As an added bonus, it’s actually pretty easy to clean up too!
I enjoyed a big ole helping of their fantastic wings tossed in just the right amount of Smoked Jalapeno Honey sauce. And yes, after one bite I decided I was going home with a bottle of the sauce for my homemade wings. Just the right amount of heat and sweet, with a little light smokiness, this sauce is very tasty and not spicy enough to scare off your I-don’t-like-spicy friends.
I would say that I on occasion have a good number of wing sauce bottles on hand. That used to worry me, but honestly, I eat wings so often that they don’t last very long at all. Specially when they are as good as the Smoked Jalapeno Honey wing sauce from Quaker Steak and Lube. I wish they had a restaurant here in Indy. I do love their wings (though they certainly serve a lot more than wings).
