Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Chicken and Pasta

Stroganoff is a favorite in my household but because too much beef can cause inflammation, we try to limit our intake. This is a similarly flavored meal with the wonderful addition of bacon! I use reduced-fat cream cheese as well as the healthy version of the soup. This keeps the calories reasonable.


  • 1 lb. chicken breasts
  • 6 strips of bacon cooked and diced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 packet dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1 (10.75 oz) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon of pepper
  • ½ cup water
  • 8 oz spaghetti cooked


  • Spray 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray; place chicken breasts in cooker.
  • In medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients except spaghetti. Pour over top of chicken.
  • Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 hours or on High heat setting 3 to 4 hours.
  • When about 15 minutes are left, cook and drain spaghetti as directed on package.
  • Just before serving, shred chicken with 2 forks, and toss creamy chicken mixture with cooked spaghetti.
