Is This Traditional Crack Chicken?

What is ‘CRACK CHICKEN’? Crack Chicken is the name of the combination of chicken, cream cheese, ranch seasoning, and bacon. This recipe does not use Ranch Seasoning mix to keep it Keto-friendly.

I have used ingredients that have no msg or additives in place of the Ranch Seasoning Mix. If you prefer the flavors using the package mix, just replace it with salt, dill, onion, and garlic powder. Crack Chicken is deliciously addictive, which is where the name comes from.

Is this recipe low-carb?

Is this Crack Chicken considered a low-carb recipe? Yes, this recipe is Keto-friendly and low carb with only 3 grams of net carbs. Enjoy.
