Slow Cooker Jalapeno Popper Chicken was our creamy, cheesy, dinner last week and it’s already being requested again by my family.

Some of us had it on slider buns as sandwiches, some enjoyed on crackers, but I liked it just by itself.

Dinners in the slow cooker are seriously the best!

I put this together the night before and kept in the fridge until the morning.

Then on my way out the door in the morning all I had to do was turn it on low.

Here’s how to make Slow Cooker Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Two pounds of chicken go into the slow cooker and season them with kosher salt and pepper.

Then add a diced onion, garlic, and diced jalapeno peppers.

I removed most of the seeds so it wasn’t super spicy.

But you could leave them if you prefer yours with a spicy kick.

Next goes 8 oz sour cream and an 8 oz block of cream cheese that I cut into smaller pieces.

Turn the slow cooker to low for 6 to 8 hours.

Go about your day letting the slow cooker do it’s thing.

And then shred the chicken with two forks right in the slow cooker.

You could choose to shred just a little if you want bigger pieces of chicken, or shred a lot if you prefer.

Add in 2 cups of shredded cheese and a pound of cooked bacon crumbles.

Mix it all together and let it sit on low for a few more minutes until the cheese melts.
